Thread Starter 
I have been trying ALL DAY to get windows 8 to install using GPT. My bios shows NOTHING UEFI, It shows the dvd and SSD as P2 and P5 no UEFI for them. What am I doing wrong? I dont understand? I enabled UEFI in bios etc.. Still nothing. Help please.

for your install media boot priority cant you select the UEFI: DVD/CD or USB as boot device? The you use diskpart to convert the drive to GPT, then install to it.

So it still installs after converting to GPT no problem correct?

After installing post a screenshot of diskpart > list disk. If there is a * under GPT column then you did it, if not then it didn't.

Doesn't W8 required a signed bootloader for UEFI?

Wait, did you do the convert GPT command in diskpart? Cause it should have an asterisk under GPT in diskpart.

With Secure Boot, yes. And the Windows 8 bootloader is already correctly signed smile.gif

@OP: It doesn't look like your disk is GPT.
