How to install Windows 7 on a UEFI BIOS


After spending the last 2 evenings looking for a solution (not full time), I've found the following two links very useful.

The first one resume the operation required to configure the USB BOOT DISK to support UEFI BIOS.
The second describes how to use DISKPART for convert your HDD/SDD to GPT for compatibility with UEFI BIOS.

As described be sure to use SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt, navigate to X:\Windows\Panther and open Setupact.log in Notepad and search for BIOS or UEFI to check what version setup is running with.

Restoring boot.ini

After crashing my XP box by reformatting the C: drive to install Vista on it (XP was installed on an other drive), I'm posting the content of my local boot.ini file.

;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.

Inline Search for IE

Seems interesting, not tested with IE7.

"Inline Search is an extremely useful free add-on for Internet Explorer that mimicks Firefox's search behavior i.e. it turns searching into a web page into a non modal research experience coupled with a search as you type facility. It integrates flawlessly into IE (version 5.5 or above), giving it that little extra that makes you a lot more efficient when you are looking for a specific piece of information."

Windows Clippings

A small and very useful screen capture utility!

"Since the release of Window Clippings 1.0 in September last year, I have been working on an update in my spare time to address some minor annoyances and bugs as well as to add some of the most commonly requested features. Needless to say I haven't had much time to work on this, but I finally managed to squeeze in a few evenings."
