Windows 8/10 Features BIOS option
« on: November 03, 2015, 10:52:27 am »

I was just wondering if anyone knows what exactly changing the BIOS option "Windows 8/10 Features" from 'Other OS' to Windows 8/10' actually does, except adding a few more menu options in the BIOS screen (CSM Support, Secure Boot). I have managed to install Windows 10 in UEFI boot mode with the setting 'Other OS'. I would have thought that this should not be possible as I would assume that chaging the setting to 'Other OS' would mean legacy mode, which would mean UEFI disabled. That assumption it would seem is incorrect. Changing it to 'Windows 8/10' after installation doesn't seem to affect anything either, so I'm struggeling to work out what exactly it does and the manual is not much help either.

The board is a Z170X-UD3, but I would assume it would apply to any Z170 board. Is anyone able to shed any light?
