What are you trying to use to install windows ?

And how did you set it up, if you created it ?

From post #16 it sounds like you are trying to use a normal installer dvd or usb stick to install windows onto a UEFI motherboard bios and a GPT partition styled hard drive or ssd. You can`t do that.
why not? i'm following the instructions on the website link
