UEFI mode problems

Pavilion G6 2014TX
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I am having A Hp pavilion G6 2014TX...

In my bios I can see UEFI boot device option...
But when i try to boot from a UEFI boot disk made by Rufus the bios is unable to identify the disk for boot.
Doesn't my pc support UEFI?
My bios version is F.26..

Here is the screenshot...

Rufus is a third party software/Freeware and not compatible with all Firmware.

Try a different software. I would suggest booting directly to UEFI instead of other software.

Wish you luck,

 If your trying to go to advance feature you don't get that option nor will HP allow you to do that.

Also note: Genuine Windows 7 Home Basic 64

 

Windows 7 machine doesn't have UEFI it has the legacy BIOS version.

 

Don't understand here is the model specs and scroll to the bottom to see it say what O/S it has.

Where? It most likely was for those that came with UEFI from the factory not to upgrade a non UEFI legacy system.

UEFI mode problems

Rufus Settings for Legacy/UEFI Modes.

 

Basically you need to Write the .iso in a different format in order for the system to detect the device (USB) under each Mode.

 

See Images Below for Settings;

^ Legacy Mode > MBR Partition Scheme for BIOS or UEFI. (FAT32)
