It depends on the board you are using and it may depend on the hard disk model. If you can post those we can look them up.

But generally with modern hardware, you just need to install Windows onto the disk in EFI mode and then you would have the full disk as your C: drive.

Hi m1ck!

You have UEFI on that motherboard...Unified Extensible Firmware Interface where you can setup...

Here is the link for your motherboard manual

Sorry, should have said that is in the bios

Go to page 25 in your manual and it explains booting UEFI mode...;)
