  2. JFYI There is a new version of grub4dos for UEFI, made by yaya, this is his third version: http://grub4dos.chenall.net/downloads/grub4dos-0.4.6a_for_UEFI-2020-11-26/ yaya's post on http://bbs.wuyou.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=422652 Please remember this is a work in progress so it is an experimental version. This new grub4dos for UEFI was developed by yaya, so in no way I'm involved on it's development, but I think this thread deserves to be on this section of the forum just because the relevance of the subject. I made that desition because unfortunately the author
  3. Hey all I have been at this for several months now. I currently own a Intel Computestick model which has an atom processor and 2GB of ram. I understand that when Windows XP was out there was no such thing as a UEFI boot. I have added the needed SATA drivers in order for it to find the SSD inside it. Problem being is that it just wont boot into the windows xp setup at all naturally because its UEFI only. The computestick I am using for this wonderful experiment is the STCK1A32WFC. But there has to be some type of way of doing this! A lot of my very very old programs will only work in XP and I p

  5. MAKE SURE SECURE BOOT IS OFF WHICH IT PROBABLY IS IF YOU ARE READING THIS, ALSO MOST VISTA COMPATIBLE MACHINES LIKELY DONT SUPPORT UEFI This took a while to do here properly but I figured it out in the end. This works on an OptiPlex 390 using Vista SP2 x64 and a HDD in UEFI mode, booted from a UEFI+GPT USB (made from the original MSDN SP2 ISO and Rufus 3.5). For some reason it seems to bug out when trying to install even to a clean HDD. It’ll complain about being unable to boot from the device on your machine and then fail to create the partitions correctly with an error. Ther
  6. Is it possible to set up a Windows virtual machine with 32-bit UEFI in VMware Workstation? I couldn't find an setting to configure UEFI. Please help!
  7. Virtualize Win8.1: BIOS + MBR Physical Partition > to > WIM Image > to > UEFI GPT VHD Virtualizing Win8.1 from BIOS + MBR Physical Partition > to > .WIM Image > to > UEFI GPT .VHD Sometime last year I found out about Native boot VHDs and tried to go that way for good. There were some issues with hardware and OS (Win7 at the time) not working out and lot of new things that I was learning about VHDs. Anyways, that confusion, learning and failure led to a better path So this 2015, I figured out how to get VHDs (with Fresh Win 8.1 Installs via Install.WIM DISM App
  8. So as I've noted elsewhere before, WinPE for Windows 8 and 8.1 will use a display's native resolution if the hardware supports GOP in UEFI mode. Windows 10 seems to be the same way... and this WILL be a problem. Testing on a notebook with a native 4k display... installation is slightly... difficult: Picture is bad but it gets the point across. When I get hands-on with this specific system, I will get clearer pictures. *NOTE: This will be a problem for Windows 8/8.1 as well.
  9. On a BIOS PC, most folks use Grub4DOS to boot ISO images. But how to boot them on UEFI PC, especially without Legacy CSM Mode, since Grub4DOS doesn't support UEFI? Taking a popular Acronis True Image Home (ATIH2014) ISO as an example (either Linux or WinPE 5.0 based, or better BOTH), can someone explain, how to boot an ISO on UEFI Windows 8.1 PC? I found one example of booting seemingly WinPE-based UEFI ATIH2014 (release unknown) by Grub2. That didn't work for me - couldn't find dat8.dat and dat9.dat files in Boot.bif image extracted by UltraISO from the mounted ATIH2014 ISO boot sector. I c
  10. If you have a computer with Windows 8 that was installed by an OEM on a GPT disk, the Windows 8.1 update from the Store will create a second recovery partition! Alternatively, if your OS is installed on an MBR disk, the 2nd partition is not created. This second partition is seen as a 350MB Recovery partition. For example a standard deployment of Windows 8 on GPT with recovery partition and diskpart: DISKPART> list part Partition ### Type Size Offset ------------- ---------------- ------- ------- Partition 1 Recovery 300 MB 1024 KB Partition 2
