    How to create a UEFI bootable CD or DVD


    Hi

    my bootable DVD's, including my W7 and W8 installl disks and my Hirem boot disk
    do not boot up in my new PC which has a UEFI, no legacy option.

    The setup is to boot to the DVD drive first but it does not happen.

    I believe there is a technique for W7 but it seems to be specific to W7.

    I would appreciate any advice on creating a UEFI bootable DVD for use in my
    new W10 PC using the bootable DVD ISO's I have.

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Did you disable Secure boot ?

    daniellouwrens,

    In the BIOS of the Asus PC, do you see a UEFI - CSM Compatability setting with three options:
    -UEFI and Legacy OPROM
    -Legacy OPROM only
    -UEFI only (See what happens when you try this one.)

    He says he only has UEFI.

    As far as I know you don`t have to create any special dvd, just use the boot menu (not the bios) to choose the UEFI dvd option.

    Maybe what the OP really wants to do is use the bootable DVD ISOs already in hand, vs. create any.

    I have disabled secure boot in UEFI setup and fast boot in Windows
    Yes I do want to use my bootable DVD's but I do have ISO's for all of them and will reburn if I have to.
    Adram, I do not know what you mean by "just use the boot menu (not the bios) to choose the UEFI dvd option"
    what boot menu is that?
    Cheers

    I'm not Adram, but I suppose that he/she/it is referring to the boot options that are brought up by pressing a hotkey during POST. For my Asrock motherboard, the key is F11.

    Hi

    My CD/DVD is already set up, in the UEFI to boot first, I know it works because the boot DVD I created for Casper 8 software works fine and the PC boots to it when it is in the DVD drive. (new info)
    I did try F11 boot menu but the only option is the Windows MBR.

    I was hoping there was a tutorial around for creating a UEFI bootable DVD from the bootable DVD ISO's I have.

    cheers

    Download latest iso from MS, mount as a drive, select all files and copy to DVD. Iso is dual purpose and can run on legacy bios or EUFI.

    How to create a bootable USB flash drive or DVD that works with both UEFI mode and Legacy BIOS mode

    Download Windows 10

    Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC (click to show more or less information)

    Before you download the tool make sure you have:

    - A blank USB flash drive or DVD (and DVD burner) with at least 4 GB of space if you want to create media. We recommend using a blank USB or blank DVD, because any content on it will be deleted.

    5. Select which media you want to use:

    - USB flash drive. Attach a blank USB flash drive with at least 4GB of space. Any content on the flash drive will be deleted.

    - ISO file. Save an ISO file to your PC, which you can use to create a DVD. After the file is downloaded, you can go to location where the file is saved, or select Open DVD burner, and follow the instructions to burn the file to a DVD.

    Burn Disc Image from ISO or IMG file in Windows 10



    You do not need to change the boot order of drives in your UEFI BIOS settings. If you have changed the settings, then restore the default settings.

    - Connect your Windows 10 USB/DVD
    - Restart the computer
    - Press the correct key to enter the boot menu (for example, Esc, F2, F8, F9, or F12)

    Windows Setup: Installing using the GPT or MBR partition style

    Many PCs now include the ability to use the UEFI version of BIOS, which can speed up boot and shutdown times and can provide additional security advantages. To boot your PC in UEFI mode, you'll need to use a drive formatted using the GPT drive format.

    Many PCs are ready to use UEFI, but include a compatibility support module (CSM) that is set up to use the legacy version of BIOS. This version of BIOS was developed in the 1970s and provides compatibility to a variety of older equipment and network configurations, and requires a drive that uses the MBR drive format.

    However, the basic MBR drive format does not support drives over 4TB. It's also difficult to set up more than four partitions. The GPT drive format lets you set up drives that are larger than 4 terabytes (TB), and lets you easily set up as many partitions as you need.

    Boot to UEFI mode or Legacy BIOS mode

    Boot into UEFI mode or legacy BIOS-compatibility mode when installing Windows from your USB, DVD, or network location.

    If you install Windows using the wrong mode, you won’t be able to use the features of that firmware mode without reformatting the drive.

    Select the firmware mode during bootup.

    1. Boot the PC. As the firmware starts to run, press the key that opens the boot device menu. For example, press the Esc, F2, F8, F9, F12, or other key to enter the firmware or boot menus.

    2. On the boot device menu, select the command that identifies both the firmware mode and the device. For example, select UEFI USB Drive or Network - BIOS.

    Note   Note
    You might see separate commands for the same device. For example, you might see UEFI USB Drive and BIOS USB Drive. Each command uses the same device and media, but boots the PC in a different firmware mode.
