Hello Cheesum,

Yep, the 100 MB "System" partition will still be there, but it'll also have the partitions used for UEFI like in the screenshot under step 8 here. :)

Hi - Thanks for the fast reply. Please be patient....complete novice here.... Can i confirm with you that under the UEFI mode, the 100MB "system" partition (that existed when we install under normal BIOS mode) will be included in Disk 0 Partition 2 - MSR Reserved ??

Also, another question. From the printscreen at step 8 - there are two partitions being:
Disk 0 Partition 3
Disk 0 Unallocated space
Can we combine both of these together under 1 partition?

The reason i am asking this is because the end result that i am looking for is 3x partitions being:
Disk 0 Partition 1 - System,
Disk 0 Partition 2 - MSR Reserved,
Disk 0 Partition 3 - of ALL the remaining space whereby Windows 7 OS will be installed here @ partition 3.

Thanks for your help and patience on this matter.

Cheesum,

No worries.

Nothing from the original installation will be left. This will completely delete and format the drive. When it's formatted, it adds those new partitions for UEFI. The new 100 MB "System" Disk 0 Partition 1 (like in screenshot) is the same as the other "System Reserved" partition.

The unallocated space should be included during the installation. If not for some reason, then yes you will be able to extend partition 3 into the unallocated space to have it all used by Windows.

Hi Brink,
What is the impact of combining both the
- Disk 0 partition 3, and
- Disk 0 Unallocated space? to make it into 1 single partition?

That's exactly correct. However, I would recommend to wait until the installation is finished first to see if you even needed to afterwards.

Hi Brink;
Now, i got a problem again ~! I am able to load Win7 in BIOS mode. When trying to load Win7 in UEFI mode, i followed on the following steps;

Enter the Win7 DVD.
Then, turn off the laptop and then start again.
Press F2 to enter BIOS,
Then, inside BIOS, disable "Secure Boot"
Then, under boot mode: select UEFI.
There, the help section shows the following:
"Windows 8 64 bit please use UEFI boot mode. Other legacy OS please use Legacy support mode."

Now, my computer seems to be stuck at the following screen: --------------> "STARTING WINDOWS" with the Windows logo smiling at me. It is not going anywhere...~!

Where have i erred now?

On a separate note, when i choose
Boot Mode: Legacy Support (NOT UEFI),
then, another button will pop up: Boot Priority: Legacy First
There, the help section shows the following:
"Determine UEFI device first or Legacy device first."

Hence, for Boot Mode: should i choose UEFI or Legacy Support?
If i choose Legacy Support; in the Boot Priority, should i choose UEFI device first of Legacy device first?

Cheesum,

It sounds like you are dual booting with Windows 8 with UEFI on one hard drive, and Windows 7 BIOS (Legacy) on a separate hard drive??

If so, you'll need to select Legacy Support for Windows 7.

As far as boot priority goes, it just depends on what you want.
  • UEFI device to have Windows 8 auto boot.
  • Legacy device to have Windows 7 auto boot.
