It should be. Do you see this? You should click under the Boot override "UEFI: Your DVD drive"

Great guide; I do most of these things automatically, but I definitely learned a thing of two by it ! biggrin.gif

Comments:
As far as WEI goes; as soon as it detects you're on an SSD, it will automatically shut off some HDD-specific features such as prefetch, indexing, etc.
It is definitely a good idea to check if they were disabled thought. I just trust windows on it. rolleyes.gif

Thanks! smile.gif

You would be surprised, I thought that to, but it turned out that Windows did not turn the features off that I put to check for! Only the disk defragmentation for the SSD was disabled! eek.gif
I even did multiple installs and verified it with others. wink.gif

That's post SP1 or Pre-SP1? I know I had some success and some failures with it... I think it's more random than anything lol

Actually it is both, I had a non sp1 boot disk and installed with that a few times, still didn't. Then I got an updated SP1 disk from MSDNAA and the same thing, didn't disable the features.

I have checked about 20 or so times on each, and it always did the same.

I told you I have a lot of experience with Windows 7 installation lol

It only shows P1 and not an option for UEFI. Maybe because I have a Blu-Ray Rewriter? Wouldn't think so though.

Maybe, idk for sure, have you updated the bios?

You could just try using a USB instead though. I have the how to in the steps.

Or you can just install the OS like normal with the MBR guide.
