Hey everyone ! As the title says, I want to make the change from the basic BIOS to UEFI. It has the Intel® HM55 Express Chipset, among a WD7500BPKT 7200RPM HDD with Advanced Format, and 4 GB's of RAM, so it can run 64 bit operating sytems. I am very new with this, I did find out about UEFI because of Windows 8 and from my BIOS settings, where it is given the option: ' Activate UEFI Boot '. Anyway, I was planning a system reinstallation, so I am prepared for a HDD wipe, after which I would firstly install Windows 8 and then dual boot a Linux - maybe Ubuntu, I'll start another thread to find out if I should pick up Ubunto or another Linux distribution So how do I do it? How do I make the switch from BIOS to UEFI ?
