Re: UEFI problem -GPT - windows install problem

Hello and welcome,


This should get you going:


The short version is: format a flash drive with a FAT32 partition.  Extract the contents of a Win 7 SP1 ISO (or DVD) to the flash drive.  Move and rename the boot file per that link above.


I've done it multiple times without problems.
