Pavilion HPE h9-1150 Phoenix BIOS UEFI compatibility with graphic cards.

HP Recommended
Pavilion HPE h9-1150 Phoenix
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My native card is GFs 550TI.

 

I bought a new GFs1060 and it didn't fit the BIOS version. Then I bought GFs 750TI and it also didn't fit asking for UEFI. Three local BESTBUYS and Fry's stores and me personally are greatful to HP for this. Then I read forums for two days and found a new BIOS version with UEFI on HP website. I did upgrade the BIOS and it is working! 

 

BIOS version 8.21 Rev.A:

Now the question is: will a new graphic card work with this version of BIOS? Can I go to the store to my old fiends to buy a new graphic card or I can only use non-UEFI cards still because this update didn't fix anything?

 

Thank you very much for your time.

When you enter the BIOS, are you able to navigate with the mouse cursor or only with the keyboard?

 

Do you know which specific motherboard is installed?

 

If you can't navigate  in the BIOS with mouse and cursor then what you have is a legacy BIOS.

Your BIOS does not give you the ability to select compatibility support mode.

 

 

NVIDIA gives the following depressing news on a document.

Sapphire Technology makes graphics cards with legacy\UEFI support that will run any game on the market. They make plenty of beastie PCIe x16 video cards with Radeon technology.
