EFI vs BIOS

Hi all,

There's this new EFI thing and I want to know if this can be force flashed to other MoBo's.

It can read more than 2TB of HDD memory, That's what I need.
I don't want to buy newer MoBo's right now.


Thanks

  1. unfortunatly no it can be flashed on to old mobo's only the newer chip set are supporting it, and alternative for you could be a sata interface card for pci or pcie
  2. No, it cannot be force-flashed.

    With a non-UEFI system, all you need is a second hard drive. All UEFI does is allow for drives larger than 2.2TB -- you can still have multiple drives adding up to more than 2TB on the old version. For example, you could have four 1TB drives, or two 2TB drives.
  3. yes i can confirm that

    my current motherboard a gygabyte ud3 somethign or antoher for my dual core cpu and i have 6 gigs of ram

    and the following hard drives

    2 2.0tb drives
    1 1tb drive
    1 350gig hard drive

    and there is no problem with it seeing the space.

    so i guess unless your getting a hard drive larger than 2tb then there is no problem.
