UEFI Boot = clown cursor - Page 2

The real problem, as I mentioned in my post, is that anytime you see Windows boot manager appear in a system BIOS, cursor response is way worse. If you install Windows in traditional BIOS mode, with CSM enabled, and legacy boot mode forced for all devices, it doesn't appear. If you install Windows 8.1 with UEFI mode, it gives you about 4-5 system partitions instead of 2, and Windows boot manager appears as your boot device instead of C drive.

I don't know why Windows boot manager is such a problem, but it is. I've had lots of experience with it before even trying UEFI mode.

So it's just a Windows 8 problem then? I installed my Windows 7 in a UEFI environment (only option with my motherboard) and have never had the partition sprawl you describe. It's always had C: drive as boot device for me, and my C: drive is actually a RAID 0 array of two SSDs.

Admittedly this is not my area of expertise so I may be grasping at straws a little here.

Not sure, I don't use Win 7 anymore, Windows 8.1 is the better option now. If your C drive is replaced by the words "Windws boot manager" in the BIOS, then you'll know you have this issue.

Windows 7 x64 4 lyfe imo :3

But no, my C: drive shows up as C: in my UEFI options along with the label "Windows" I gave it in the Intel RST RAID ROM.

Btw UEFI interface =/= a BIOS but I'm sure you already know that. Calling it a BIOS is just kind of a colloquial usage.

I call legacy, "BIOS", and other "UEFI BIOS" for the sole reason that people will likely understand what I'm talking about easier. If UEFI has CSM enabled, it should technically not be very inaccurate of a statement anyway.

This could help someone solve an issue that's damn well near impossible to troubleshoot properly. Thanks r0ach for posting this. I remember seeing your post in the other thread where guy said a molex to 3 pin fan adapter gave him mouse lag, but I had no idea how to check. This clarified it nicely!

Hey Roach i just stumbled upon this "Windows Boot Manage" in my bios as main boot device

So you would recommend i just install windows in the legacy mode and disable CSM correct?

Thanks
