    To install Windows 7 x64 in UEFI (gpt partition drive) the easiest way I've found is to use a USB stick with the Windows install files on it. Then use the boot menu (F12) and select the USB stick. Sometimes I've had to set the bios to boot UEFI only. I use Rufus to format and place the Windows ISO on the USB stick.

    HTH. There is lots of places on the internet with helpful information about installing Windows x64.

    exactly, I will install win7 with USB key, with this in boot menu there is show UEFI USB ...

    But ... why in DVD there isn't in boot menu UEFI DVD.. when in net are there more link with ? ...Why in my Mobo no ? Is possible because I have insert SATA from DVD in IDE mode ?

    PS: I don't know "some reason" :)

    PS2: Don't have missing SATA port yet. OCZ in Sata2 and Crucial in M.2 working very well.... BIOS F7e beta

    I don't know why, but unless there already exists gpt partition I've seldom been able to boot a dvd in UEFI mode.
    As far as your dvd, why not put it in AHCI mode??

    My DVD is LG GSA-H30N (some years of service) and if it is in AHCI mode i have a BSOD at boot.

    I have to put it in IDE mode
