    What he means is that you can install Windows 8, 8.1,10 in UEFI mode without the need to do anything to the ISO. Windows 7, on the other hand, requires you to prepare some files in order to install in UEFI mode. Also Windows 7 only supports UEFI installation on the 64 Bit version.

I have always run my systems 24/7 and never had an issue.
    Do you know where you heard about this? I've been doing nightly shutdowns on my laptop for four years now, and it's been doing alright.

    So, I can install Windows 10 from the Microsoft USB Pen in UEFI without problems, right?

    For a moment i thought i wasn't going to be able to install W10 in UEFI mode because of the Microsoft retail USB pen and had to buy the DVD version or something like that, instead.

    Thanks!

    If the usb flash drive does not have the UEFI prefix in the boot device list, then it does not have the UEFI bootloader present. So to answer your question, no you will not be able to install in UEFI mode from that drive. Also you do not need rufus, any special instruction or anything to create a UEFI bootable flash drive. Nor you need to buy a new windows version.

    All you need is download the latest official iso directly from Microsoft: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    and just extract the contents of the iso to a flash drive. And that's it. Like both Arne and Chino said, UEFI booting does not rely on a bootsector but rather on a bootloader file, which is a simple file, being present at the root of the drive. All you need to do is extract the official iso to a flash drive. Now why that pen drive you bought, has no UEFI bootloader present, I have no idea as I have never seen one.

    I download Windows 10 from their site... And this is inside.

    I need to change something for UEFI?
    I want to know but I will install Windows 7 again because I'm not ready for transfer on Windows 10.

    Like I said for UEFI installation you just extract the iso as is in a flash drive. Nothing else. That's for 8, 8.1 and 10.
    For 7 only read this older post of mine, it explains at the end:

    Thanks... I saw that people copy some of files in new folder with Windows 7.
    I thought it's enough to create bootable USB with Rufus, GPT partition scheme for UEFI.

    What is best way to check later is it UEFI after installation finish?
