Hi Brink
No. I do not dual boot with both Windows 8 and Windows 7. Now, my sole OS is just Windows 7. I believe currently i am in the BIOS mode since i have selected the following in my BIOS:
disable "Secure Boot"
Then, under boot mode: select legacy support;
Boot priority: Legacy device
Also, how do i check my mode now is BIOS mode and not UEFI?

However, i would like to load Win7 on UEFI. How do i go about doing it? I think there are some additional steps before this tutorial.

Notes:
•You must have an internal or external DVD drive to use the recovery discs.
•During the recovery process, all data on the hard disk drive will be deleted. Copy any important data or personal files that you want to keep onto removable media or a network drive before you start the recovery process.

To restore your computer to the original factory configuration using the recovery disc set, do the following:
1.Make the CD/DVD drive the first startup device in the startup sequence using the following procedure:
?Repeatedly press and release the F1 key when turning on the computer. When you hear multiple beeps or see a logo screen, release the F1 key. The Setup Utility program opens.
?Use the arrow keys to select Startup. Depending on your computer model, select Primary Boot Sequence, Boot, or Startup Sequence.
?Select the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device by following the instructions and the help messages on the screen.

HI all;
How do i check if Windows 7 is running on UEFI mode? Is there any command prompt, etc..which can tell me Win7 is running on UEFI mode?

The last time i checked, the settings are shown per the below printscreen.

It looks like its in Legacy and not UEFI, both because the Legacy setting says so and there are no UEFI options in the actual Priority list.

What other choices exists for Boot Mode and Boot Priority settings?

What are the settings choices for the listing we can only see as EFI in the screenshot?

Will it boot and install now, deleting all partitions in case you need to clear GPT formatting? If not run Diskpart Clean Command

Hi
Just completed a clean installation yet again ~! Hopefully, this is the last time... Please confirm whether i have Windows 7 on UEFI mode.

This shows during my clean installation.

Also, this shows in my Disk Management.

Any other way that i can know whether i have installed correctly on UEFI mode? Thanks.

Out of pure curiosity since I haven't bother with UEFI so far, why doesn't the Ceesum's Disk management screenshot show 3 partitions. I would have thought to see a partition other than EFI called MSR or something similar?
