    Install Windows 10 in Uefi Mode.


    I am wondering if I can install windows 10 creator's update on my new hp laptop, I have it on usb, in uefi mode. The reason I ask is that my older laptop, also an hp did not allow me to install via eufi, but in legacy only. I think it has something to do with oem windows baked in to the bios.

    If you are sure your warranty will not be affected you could do a clean install which will remove all partitions and reformat the hard drive. Follow the details in this tutorial: Clean Install Windows 10

    Assuming your new laptop came with Win 10, it's a fair assumption it's already configured for UEFI/GPT.

    Look at your Disk Management:

    If you see a Fat32 100Mb EFI partition, then you're already using UEFI.

    If you are already running Win 10, you can simply wait for the upgrade. Note we recommend the routine use of disk imaging (e.g. Macrium reflect (free)) so you can recover from many problems, and updating the image before major changes such as upgrading.

    Actually you are right, but I did a fresh install with my flash drive, thus removing pen system. I am currently installing with uefi enabled. It seems to be working.

    OK all done. Now the next step is to see if I can get ubuntu 17.04 to dual boot? Will give an update for those interested.
