Looking for ideas - this is driving me nuts.
My DVD burner works fine normally. I can burn discs and see the results just fine. In fact, I can even burn the Asus Recovery discs and boot them just fine. But, the Asus Recovery discs are formatted for Bios booting so that works. Specifically, during starting the boot option is "P2: Slimtype BD ..."
But, I have a DVD that is formatted to boot using EFI (just like Windows on the HDD) and that won't boot. I created this DVD using the Windows7 "Backup and Recovery" tool in Control Panel. There is an option to create a Windows Repair Disc to restore a backed up disk image if that should ever be necessary. Windows7 needs to create that as a UEFI style boot DVD and that is what won't boot on my G75. I tried burning to two different brands of DVDs and one CD to no avail.
I am careful to select the UEFI boot option shown to me during the Asus startup, it just won't start from the DVD. Specifically that boot option is "UEFI: Slimtype BD ..."
I tried contacting Asus support and once the guy realized I wasn't trying to boot the Asus recovery discs he just said they don't support customers doing "there own thing". That's nonsense of course but that's what he said and I couldn't get past that.
Any ideas? Anybody else have that problem?
