New mobo wont boot from Uefi flash drive

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I am trying to get my sig rig setup. And I am trying to boot from a uefi flash drive. I followed directions etc.. on how to get it setup. I see the UEFI drive in my bios but when I try to boot from it. Well it does nothing but go back to the bios. It refuses to boot off any UEFI. Flash drives, dvd drive. etc.. Help please.

If you're booting off of a flash drive, shouldn't it be legacy mode, not UEFI? And most bootable discs are not UEFI capable you have to boot to it normally. One exception to that is Windows 8 but I don't know many others. If you're sure your media is UEFI compatible- are there any BIOS updates available for the board? Even beta ones that maybe fix this issue? Is there an option there to boot to UEFI only (instead of Legacy only or Legacy/UEFI?). Try UEFI only under boot selection type.

Replaced the mobo with a Asrock Z87 Professional and still CANNOT boot from UEFI. *** is the problem?

I am starting to regret getting rid of my AM3+ rig.

*Edit*

I remember RMAing my video card and got a new one back. I checked on powercolors website and they have a regular version and a UEFI ready version. Do you think I got a regular version back? My last card had NO ISSUES booting to UEFI.

With Win8 there aren't any tricks you have to do unlike with Win7.. all you should have to do is burn the Win8 ISO onto to the USB, it'll do the job right (FAT32). Then force UEFI mode in BIOS and boot from the UEFI USB entry.

There's something wrong with the way you've burned it and/or the USB (ie: not FAT32).

I wish it was that easy. I have tried 3 different flash drives all formatted fat 32. I don't get what else I can try.
