Can anyone who has installed any version of windows to an intel ssd 750 PCIe please chime in with the type of GPU they have / used for the install? Im thinking the issue im having on my new RIVbe is that i cant disable CSM in the bios bc i then get the message that my "VGA card does not have a UEFI bios" (r7 240 , and i tried a R9 270x and a old Radeon 6750, all the same issue when i try to disable CSM in the bios).
Ive tried installing win 7 64 and win 8.1 64, i either get the message from the win installer GUI saying that "win can not install to this drive, make sure it is enabled in the bios" (yes, im loading the latest drivers, directly from the intel site via a usb stick, loading the drivers makes no difference, and under win 8.1 installer the 400gb drive is already visible).
Ive tried USB install media, and sata DVD install media (both on both win7 and win 8.1) the result is the same.
one unusal thing though, is when i select win 8.1 UEFI in my bios boot order (when using it via my SATA dvd drive) i get the invalid boot disk, insert a valid boot disk and press enter POST message. (i think all of this is bc my GPU doesnt support UEFI , but earlier Cyclops' GTX 780 supposedly doesnt have a UEFI bios either and he was able to get win installed to a intel ssd 750 PCIE
any ideas or can anyone chime in on what GPUs they have used to successfully install win 7/8/10 to a intel 750 SSD on ASUS X79 (im on a RIVbe)
