Laptop: Dell Latitude E6530 Intel Ivy Bridge, Core i5, HD 4000. 16GB of Ram Windows 7 with UEFI mode (No Basic Display Adapter) on 4TB SSD. Installation Media: Windows Vista x64 SP2 Updated to 2017 EOL (for Extended Kernel) formatted in Rufus with UEFI\GPT settings. Hi! I was wondering if anyone knows how to run Windows Vista SP2 with UEFI enabled on Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5? If so, what do I need to do, and how do I dual-boot it with Windows 7 when Windows 7 is installed first. The ISO has all the updates from Vista launch to its 2017 discontinuation. The Windows 7 installation on UEFI was made possible by deleting Basic Display Adapter after installing it through Mini Windows 10's DISM. UEFI is needed if I want to use the full 4TB SSD space. Any help on this is greatly appreciated! EDIT: I solved this issue. You can get Windows Vista working under UEFI (on devices that support Windows 8 and later such as Sandy/Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, etc) using UEFI7. Just replace the Windows 7 ISO with the Windows Vista updated to 2017 eol ISO (if you are using that ISO).
