    Using UEFI (BIOS replacement)

    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.

    Red face Solved :-)

    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

    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...untry=&status= this link was for G75 but applies as well to the G73 etc. The basic proceedures are the same for all notebooks drivers as specific your particular notebook.
