Did you go into bios, insert dvd in drive, save and reset then reenter bios? I know if I just go to bios and insert the dvd it wont uefi. I need to restart and go back into bios for it to read it as uefi

i use windows instalation from external HDD. not from DVD.
yes, when use DVD its normal and i can instal with UEFI, but when use windows instalation from External HDD my asus maximus VII hero always install not UEFI (legacy mode). and when i use same media instalation (external HDD) to another motherboard (MSI Z97) can install with UEFI mode

Esc Key or F8 key on boot should give you a boot menu, from there select your ext hd UEFI to boot
