Windows 7: Install Windows7 from DVD or DVD UEFI?

03 Dec 2015   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

First off, I would never call it standard, but rather traditional.

I have installed using both methods, I see no advantage with UEFI, but that`s just my opinion.

But UEFI does have its purposes. (Installing windows on a GPT drive etc)

Research it and come up with your own conclusions

Steve (Essenbe) tells me if you were to install Windows on a M.2 SSD it has to be done in UEFI, I`ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
