    Like the title says I am a complete UEFI n00b here. I did not know that you could not use MBR with UEFI. I did not know that Windows 7 Loader did not work with GPT... so here I am. Stuck. Here's my setup: Gigabyte B85M-D3H motherboard Pentium G3220 4gb RAM Crucial C300 128gb SSD (GPT) I've got Windows installed and running, but I cannot get v. 2.2.1 or 2.1.7 of Windows 7 Loader to work since it says 'partition not supported' I am not unwilling to reinstall Windows because at this point I'm stuck anyway. Please help me since I do not know wtf I am doing with UEFI. I am not an idiot, I promise... been in the field for over a decade with thousands of builds to my name. Just looking for a little guidance. Thanks in advance.
