Windows 7: Prob installing Ultimate 64 bit on Intel Desktop Board using 3TB HDD

Prob installing Ultimate 64 bit on Intel Desktop Board using 3TB HDD

Hi everyone

I`ve been trying to install the 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate version on an Intel Desktop Board DZ77SL-50K using a 3TB Seagate HDD. Somewhere along the road, I learnt the motherboard must be switched to UEFI mode first in order to install the OS on a 3TB internal HDD. However, after enabling the UEFI mode in the BIOS menu, the mobo no longer recognizes the Windows 7 installation DVD although the Pioneer DVD drive appears in the boot menu and I can select the DVD drive to boot to.

Please someone help me figure how to boot to the installation DVD successfully in UEFI mode.
