    Well to do this you need a harddrive that is UEFI capable. Normally when you go to install windows from a USB flash drive you have to boot off this drive. When going to select the drive to boot off, you should see an option like "Sandisk Extreme - (UEFI))" Selecting this will allow the windows install program to create a new partition on your hard drive that will have FOUR separate partitions. Non-UEFI will usually have TWO.

    OF course to be able to see this option for your installation your BIOS must be set to recognize UEFI. So make sure in your BOOT options you have selected UEFI for your boot device.

    Finally your Motherboard has to have UEFI Capable.

    Yup you should. I normally will go into BIOS hit F7 then F8 and have a list of all my drives I can boot off of. Just choose the drive that has Windows install on it and choose the UEFI option. If you don't see it. Go into Boot options and make sure you set your cd/HD/boot drive as UEFI first or UEFI only.

    In your BIOS before you even install windows select is as UEFI. Under CSM you can either disable that or set *the options to UEFI first you don't need CSM enabled for most applications unless you are booting from a network or Optical drive.

    Back on the topic I'm still not getting the obsession over being booted to desktop at light speed. There are a lot of things going on in desktops that don't happen in laptops. Some are simple and common sense like the 3 second default delay that gives you time to hit the del or F2 to get in the BIOS when things don't go as planned on an OC, unless you would rather spend hours until you hard fault your drive and it goes to a black screen halt saying MBR is missing then you can get in the BIOS. Fast boot os more aptly named as fast joke as in you just fell for a rebranding of hibernation. *Uses the same hiberfil.sys file to dump everything that is loaded in ram to your boot drive then reloads it when you reboot or boot back up. Having problems that need a fresh boot? You now have to do a hard shut down by holding in the power button so not use fast boot. Otherwise the problem driver just gets reloaded in the exact same messed up state it was in before you restarted. Now if you are using a high $$ SSD that's a wasted write of a huge file , hiberfil.sys, to your drive every time to **** down or reboot and is proportional to what you have running as well as the size of your ram. Writes of 16GB to 60GB are not uncommon each and every time you shut down or reboot. *I've done extensive testing on this and at most it shaves off 3 seconds on the boot that you lose on the shut down because of the memory dump.*

    My advice? Don't obsess over how long it take your machine to reload the apps and drivers that were in memory as you can't really even call that a boot, more of resume from renamed hibernation, *and instead obsess about how much of an OC your can get out of that puppy for performance *enhancement where it actually counts!*

    Hello

    As you link the term "fast boot" with the creation and use of the hibernation file I'm assuming you are actually referring to the shutdown option in Windows labeled as Fast Startup. If so unlike the more conventional form of hibernation Fast Start writes only approximately 20% of the ram contents to disk. Also a restart form within the operating system forces a S5 shutdown so no need to be holding in the power button as stated above.

    Cool

    i just purchased the new Hero, and so far very impressed in both performance and looks. *At present it is taking around 20 seconds for me to boot up. *i was wondering if anyone had any tips tricks to get a super fast boot up, i see and hear people on Asus boards getting under 10 seconds and i am keen to get this as well. *It bugs me that my 5 year old laptop boots quicker at presen
    I had similar issues which I noticed after some time, and I thought my board or CPU was busted. But no.

    The things that can speed up your boot time (but not performance after)

    1. Try Setting your DRAM at just 2133Mhz (Auto usually)
    2. Try leaving all CPU settings at AUTO (not overclocking)
    3. Obviously removing the post screen (Set Auto) and delay to 0.

    So yeah, those 3 things take my board from 25s to windows login screen down to 14s on Formula. (Non UEFI OS install)

    Edit: Also do a normal shutdown from OS to have fast boot next time around.
