Questions on GA-P67A-UD4-B3 - BIOS F8
« on: December 05, 2020, 06:49:54 am »
I installed Windows 10 on a 2TB HDD (MBR) in a PC with a GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Motherboard.
Works fine until I add a GPT HDD then the system will not boot.
If I add GPT HDDs once Windows is running there is no problem. However that is hardly ideal.
Is there any way round this problem?

Is there any prospect of an EFI upgrade for this board?

Greetings,
Afraid not.  While GPT formatted disks are possible for data, booting from them is not be supported.  GPT formatted boot drives require a UEFI BIOS.

Thank you.

Discovered that so long as the MBR drive is first in the boot list then all ok.

Greetings,

This forums software doesn't have this function.  Nothing more to do.

Thanks
