G73JW. I see that I have the UEFI option from the factory-installed BIOS on this notebook, running Win 7 x64. Couple of questions before I try enabling it:

1. How will enabling it affect the original BIOS?
2. Will I be able to disable UEFI and revert to original BIOS at any time?
3. Are there any issues with UEFI and current disk partitions, etc?
4. Currently I am not able to boot from USB, does enabling UEFI allow that?

I've found lots of info about UEFI in general, and for a few other Asus models, but not specifically for G73JW series.

Thanks.

It appears you have to install Win 7 with UEFI enabled. I enabled UEFI and didn't notice anything on a current Win 7 Install. I would also like to know if anyone has done this.

I tried to boot a Win 7 Pro x64 DVD in EFI mode, but couldn't figure out how. It would be nice to have some instructions.

Finally I did solve this...

Download rufus, create usb with windows iso and select UEFI only (GPT)...

Bios will find USB and installation will create right GPT table on disk ;-)

Done

Here are a few links to help explain how it done. Your win 7 ISO has to have the boot 64 file created Install Win 7 UEFI (http://www.sevenforums.com/gtsearch.php?cx=partner-pub-7156303416008077%3Ahfslqp-2rmq&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=UTF-8&q=howe+to+clean+Install+UEFI)
