    Clear your CMOS to put everything back to stock defaults. Then try installing in UEFI again. Does the issue still persist?

    I had the same problem and suggest you the following:
    - get yourself a minimum 4GB USB stick
    - go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/w...-refresh-media
    - press 'Create Media' and do as advised there

    After the USB image of your version of Windows is created:
    - restart the computer and enter UEFI setup (I am assuming that all UEFI settings are correct)
    - go to TOOL menu and choose BOOT OVERRIDE
    - select your USB stick

    The installation should start.

    Good luck.

    It can be one of the two then your keyboard isnt 100% supported like mine, Or your windows install disk isn't setup for UEFI correctly make sure its a OEM DVD not a hacked image.

    Once upon a time, mine would show the "Hit key to boot DVD" and when I did it jumped back to the bios. It was related to the keyboard as mentioned.

    I moved my USB keyboard and possibly mouse to a new port and the boot continued normally. Also shutting the system all the way down and then rebooting might help.

    That's weird. Mines came without a partition actually.

    Anyways, I'm glad you got it to work. Enjoy!
