My new motherboard is EFI and uses GPT partitioning. Will any of the systems on the left work with GPT? Most of the ones I have seen require MBR to close out and that is not available on this board. Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H with Dual UEFI BIOS.
I think I may have left out a few important points. When I started to load Win 7 (new copy, unused) in my new unit, it kept hanging up. So I sought help and was told that a large RAM (machine has 32 gig) can cause this, so I removed all but 8 gig, but it still wouldn't load all the way. I reformated the primary drive and tried some more. Success this time. Activated Win 7 and thought I was done but 2 weeks ago, Microsoft started yelping for me to Activate. Sure enough, when I checked it was not activated anymore and Msoft now says my 25 digit key is blocked. I stumbled onto your site looking for help and it sure sounded like you could help. Guess not!
