My System Specs

Default Asus RIVE and W7 UEFI Install

Hey guys
In prep for this build been reading lots over at the ROG Forum. Last night I started reading through the W7/8 Install guide and had a serious headache after reading through the UEFI Windows installation vs BIOS

Anyone here completed this type of install on these Asus Boards?

It looks fairly straightforward as I'll be using a new Intel SSD, so the initial steps of the install looks as though itwill ensure my Disc is GPT type, then set up required partitions and install.

Now, when I connect my older drives, one Vertex II and one WD Black 640, will there be issues with my system detecting these drives once plugged in.

This whole UEFI, GPT CMS causing brain throbbing

Guess the question is do you have to install via this method or can you install via basic BIOS method ? Hard to teach an old dog new tricks every now n then!!
