Call me old fashioned (i'm 17) but there's something reassuring about the low res bios . . . .
You can feel reassured with the old BIOS all you want. The truth is there have been viruses out there for quite some time that are capable of infecting the BIOS.

UEFI will be no more vulnerable to attack than BIOS. The only difference is a user can connect to the net through UEFI. It really doesn't matter...

Haha. At least that's probably what he feels though.

My Asus P8Z68-V Pro has UEFI and it's great but boot times are still as slow as before. I wish Asus programmed it in a way that would boot faster.

It doesn't, but it affects all the pre-os booting things, such as bootloader and kernel.

I don't know what your all saying about the UEFI Pre windows boot time being fast it takes my 990Fx sabertooth 30 seconds to start booting windows after it goes through drive detection, raid controller detection, raid array detection.


Thats pretty much the same time it took my 980A G65

What gregory said. Have you seen how fast Macs boot? It's all in the UEFI, even if you're using bootcamp to boot into Windows.

I have two options on my new Toshiba Laptop. When I select UEFI. It will not boot. I tried to get Toshiba's tech support to explain this to me but besides not speaking english I did not get a clear answer.

If anyone has the time and knowledge to explain this option and it's uses in simple terms I would greatly appreciate it.

It is a Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7290

Thank You

Doesn't UEFI boot extremely quickly compared to BIOS?

Why would anyone complain about that?
