This boot drive can only run on UEFI mode. It can not boot in bios/legacy mode

Recommended Posts

Hello friends today I have completed my build and boot the system. I also installed my old hard drive in it with windows 7 installed in MBR format. I have also installed a new hard drive with GPT format. So created a bootable usb drive with GPT format. But this error ocures says I need to convert it in MBR format. I tried to upluge my old hard drive but the pen drive won't boot. And windows 7 is just crashing so I can't change it to MBR format right away. I can get it done from my friend's computer but it will take a while. Can you guys please tell me why is that happening and spare me some time??

what does the boot menu show? 

 

You want to select the uefi option, not the plain usb drive.

 

Turn the bios to uefi only if not already.

Main tab, advanced tab, oc tweaking tab, security tab, boot tab, exit tab

that doesn't seem like the boot menu, that seems like the bios/uefi settings. Look in your manual for the boot menu key.

Windows 7 is not compatible with this hardware

 

Make sure you select the UEFI option for the USB drive in your boot menu


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

So delte all the old partition, then make one big one.

 

And unplug all the drive but the one you want windows on.

I have lots of data in this can't loose them all. Would MBR fix the problem?

Are you installing windows on a drive with data already?

 

In that case, make backups, then delete the data, then install.
