    Maximus V Extreme Win8 UEFI

    Hey all I'm having a bit of trouble here and was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction. Iv been following the bellow guide on how to install Win8 under UEFI.

    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...allation-Guide

    I know it's not the exact same board but from what I can tell the relevant options are the same.

    My hardware configuration is as follows

    I7 3770k
    Maximus V Extreme (Bios 1707)
    16GB Dominator Platinum
    Samsung 840 Pro
    SLI GTX 670s

    When I go to I stall I hit f8 and select the DVD drive that has the UEFI prefix at the beginning. I then follow the steps per normal till I get to the part where I need to format the drive. This is where the problem happens for some reason or another its not formatting the SSD to a GPT array and I can't forthr life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    Any help would be really apriciated at this point iv tried everything I know.

    Thanks in advanced!

    Think there are differences in the BIOS with the Maximus board.

    And the steps listed in the RIVE article do not sync.

    Will try and get Nodens to engage with this thread for you.

    Thanks for the heads up HiVizMan

    Rift, did you follow the troubleshooting part of the guide? Following that should fix the issue.

    Hey Nodens I followed the first part where it shows yu how to use disks art to clean the drive. Unfortunately no go. It always just creates two partitions.

    I used parted magic to restore ssd performance. And regarding GPT partition and UEFI boot guide, first thing is to make sure your GPU/s has the required UEFI BIOS (I got it from evga upon requesting them personally via email), after that just disable CSM and use other OS under secured boot. Also enable fast boot under boot menu and if you using raid make sure you have the OROM message as keep current, coz your raid menu should appear inside bios once CSM disabled (these process will help you get that extra boot speed, especially during bios post) nd just follow the windows 8 prompt....!! Would be straight forward. However I used the modded 1707 BIOS with 12.6 RAID OROM but overall sequence should be the same.
    Good luck

    After the "clean" command, issue a "convert gpt" as well.

    You don't need to do this on TRIM supporting drives. Unless you want to bench the drive. Otherwise you're just reducing its life by incurring unnecessary writes all across the drive.

    And regarding GPT partition and UEFI boot guide, first thing is to make sure your GPU/s has the required UEFI BIOS (I got it from evga upon requesting them personally via email), after that just disable CSM and use other OS under secured boot.

    If there is no UEFI GOP firmware for the video card, it doesn't matter as you can keep CSM on, with UEFI first suboptions. You won't get the spped improvement in booting but if your video card has no UEFI GOP for it out yet thats all you can do.

    Keep current is not needed or suggested. There is no OROM loaded at all so it would affect nothing at all. Unless your array has an issue. With keep current you won't see it while booting. So it's a bad idea.

    Also you can't disable CSM entirely if you're installing Win7.

    12.6 OROM is entirely irrelevant to this process and in fact if you install in UEFI mode, it's not even used so there's no point, AT ALL, flashing a modded UEFI image with it.

    you don't need to convert anything or clean anything. just go to BIOS and disable the CSM, then boot to Win8 EFI installation media (F8 at boot up, select "UEFI: DVD/USB media") and in installer select the destination drive, delete all partitions (so it stays empty), then make it install on that empty drive. win8 will take care of everything and prep GPT layout.

    worth noting is that you need a video card BIOS compatible with EFI boot as well, otherwise computer won't boot in EFI mode with Secure Mode. UEFI GOP is support on 660+ series cards from nvidia, but need to be requested from Tech support and flashed by user.
    Titan cards come with UEFI GOP from factory, 700 series will probably follow the same route.

    I have only 660Ti & 670 2GB reference UEFI. open the tech support case with EVGA, they will send you email with zipped BIOS in an hour. They are very fast at that.

    good luck!
