It may be that like for me, Auto is the best setting.

Full EFI boot (CSM disabled) only shows post on whichever connected output your vBIOS is programmed to prioritize I believe, certainly seems to be the case on Nvidia 9 series...

Would that be an order of priority? My 780 has a similar thing although it's not limited to full EFI as it would prioritise my HDMI port over Displayport on my old i5-750 build, sending the post screen to my receiver instead of my monitor. I would have to unplug my HDMI lead to get access to the bios. Swapping the Displayport for a Dual DVI link solved this.

Different manufacturers will have different priorities.

Yeah they will, it seems with Nvidia HDMI takes priority over DVI.

On the same system, when booting in legacy mode post is displayed on both of those inputs...

I meant different brands like Asus or gigabyte. At least that's what Nvidia told me when they said it's up to the vendor, not them, to choose the priority.

Interesting that your system does both outputs, it wasn't the case for either my old pre-ufi machine, or my current one in legacy mode.

Ah fair point, yeah whoever writes the vBIOS for the card..

Other 2 legacy systems in the house show post on both (HDMI/DVI) using AMD cards by Sapphire... Might fire up the Intel (EFI) onboard just out of curiosity smile.gif

If manufacturers built an 'interface and connectivity' quiz into the UEFI that must be passed before unlocking the advanced options, I would be screwed at this point because I would not pass. I have no problem at all stating that all of this is new to me. But at this time, I have three options: let $3.3K of components sit in my closet, hire someone to put it together for me, or pony up and learn some new stuff.

I know some of the recent posts are not directed towards me, but still, I probably have the least amount of experience on this board, and the most basic questions.

I built my first and only PC 5 years ago. It was a piece of cake. Assemble components in case, tweak BIOS, load Windows from installation CD. When that PC crashed 3 months ago, I figured I'd build another. It took about a month to decide my direction, and another month piecing everything together and buying them. It's amazing how much technology has changed in 5 years. 5 years ago, I didn't have to care about SSD, AHCI, UEFI, NVMe, CSM, bootable USB's for loading Windows 7 and getting 3.0 drivers... I didn't have to install WIndows to a interim SSD drive for NVMe drivers, then use third party software to clone to my primary drive. I never would have made it this far without asking questions, and the help and advice I've received or read from this board. For that, I'm grateful. But I do apologize for my questions being so basic to those that know a lot more than I do.

Best regards,
Kix

Interestingly enough I've just started a fresh install with CSM set to auto, and now my HDMI takes priority over DVI-D. Last time tried auto I didn't have to mess about with cables to get a picture.

Hello

Asking what you may feel are basic questions does not need an apology. That is what most of us are here for. Ask away. Please do not confuse this with the previous nonsense.

Asus have recommended to me to keep the CSM setting to auto, this solved my UEFI capable GPU not initialising when I had set things manually.

If this doesn't work, you can manually select your Windows install media from within the BIOS, making sure you use the version with the UEFI prefix if you are given the choice between 2 versions.

I moved my data from Sandisk 960G SSD to free up an interim drive for a new Win7 load. Afterwards, I did a secure erase on it from UEFI Tools. With a Win7 load set on my bootable USB and ASUS Z170 Support DVD, I set my CSM to Auto. When I tried to boot from my USB (it's the only drive listed), it will not boot from it. It's listed in my Boot Menu as UEFI: USB Flas Memory, Partition 1 (14887MB). I also tried setting CSM to Enabled, and all other four boot settings set to UEFI Only (or UEFi driver first). Same thing, it will not boot from the USB even though listed in the boot menu. If I have CSM set to Enabled and all others set to UEFI and Legacy OPROM (or just Legacy), it boots to USB just fine and begins to install Win7.

For some reason, it doesn't seem to like my USB drive when CSM is set to Auto. I formatted the USB as FAT32. Should I have used NTFS?

Again, thanks for any insights,
Kix
