If you are having difficulty with that - it may be easier for you to create an uefi compatible usb stick from your installation iso.

You could use rufus to create the uefi bootable usb stick,, but this is simpler:
Attachment 404312

The default is FAT32 - leave it like that and it will support both uefi and bios booting.

Dear SIW,


Thanks. I'm not sure if the DVD drive is set to UEFI, I'll have a look. If not I'll look into the USB7ice thing. Thanks again.


Cheers,
Fritz

Hi,
Greets,
@pivo11 : Sir,
1.you are having main OS components on Disk 1 only, so no foul play & other problems.
2.The problem is clear : Your OS configuration is UEFI + GPT : disk 1 (First Snapshot) is Having 'EFI SYSTEM PARTITION which symbols UEFI (bios type) & disk 1 (3rd Snapshot) is having GPT (partition style).
When look on DVD, it is MBR partitioned ! It's the reason for compatibility issue.
3. You may want to know whether CD/DVD drive is configured as UEFI and/or LEGACY bios. But as i plan to use Usb pen drive with Rufus, that info is not required as of now. ( I use Usb pen drives for various positives )
Shall we proceed ?
4. So,
(a) Download Rufus ( you can go for portable version ) :Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way
(b) if you go for the portable version, place executable in a folder.
(c) Insert the pen drive & Backup/copy all the pen drive data,etc to a safe place. Rufus deletes all that !
5. Now launch Rufus (1) Select the pen drive in the Device menu, (2)click 'SELECT', browse to the win 7 iso and double click it (somethings change & iso name will appear in the 'Boot selection' window), (3) Choose partition scheme as GPT & Target system as UEFI ( it may be chosen automatically but make sure ! ) (4) need not change any thing else, (5) press 'START' ( copying iso files, finally READY ) (6) close the rufus window it's done.
6. Boot into the pen drive & report.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Dear Vineet,


Brilliant! It worked a treat. I created the USB drive and it booted and ran the repair function and restarted the computer without any problems. I thank you three times three! Much appreciated. May life smile upon you, sir.
