My System Specs

Default

Just pick the option that does not have UEFI in front of it. Then just install windows 7 like you have in the past.

The idea with using UEFI is that it allows you to boot from a GPT drive. If you look at most of the notebooks that are coming with windows 8 pre-installed you will see it is all done using UEFI and then the main drive is set up as a GPT drive which allows them to have multiple (I mean like 5 in most cases) active partitions. It also does speed up the boot going from the "bios" level to the OS. But really what I end up doing with all of those machines is wiping the drive and converting the drive back to an MBR and then installing windows 7.
