Windows 7: Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit installation issue on UEFI mode

But have you tried to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 with Legacy BIOS?

This has worked in all cases so far where UEFI has presented problems.

Hi Greg,
right now i am using win 7 with legacy Bios. the prob right now is, my partition are in MBR. For newer Fedora 19, it requires GPT partition.

So unless i can get Fedora 19 (yes, i need this particular version) to work in MBR, i am unable to install it. It requires GPT Partition.

So i was wondering if we can somehow install win 7 in GPT without the issue that i first describe.

I have tried in USB (UEFI) and it does not work, same issue.

Hope if someone has face this similar issue, could be a help for my problem :)
