    HI All,
    Greets,

    1. I have hp pavilion g6 laptop. Its BIOS is configured as UEFI first & Legacy second.
    It allows me to boot into UEFI +GPT USB Installation Media of WIN 7,8 & 8.1 x64 Iso but it does not allow me to boot into UEFI+GPT Win 8, 8.1 x32 Installation Media.
    It says :
    The selected boot device failed. Press <Enter> ( OK ) to continue.
    It also allows to boot into MBR+BIOS Installation Media of Win 7,8,8.1 x32 & x64.

    2. I would like to mention that initially it was not allowing to boot into win 7 x64 UEFI+ GPT Installation Media. The Legacy Boot option was disabled in BIOS by default. Then i made the Legacy Boot option enabled & it was instantly able to boot into the UEFI+GPT Installation Media of Win 7 x64.

    As i know Win 8,8.1 & 10 x32 has full support for UEFI+GPT

    ( I always prepare Installation Media with rufus & Usb7ice. There is no problem with the Iso, pen drives & USB ports, as the same are being used for all BIOS+MBR & UEFI+GPT configurations with 100% success. The laptop has 4GB RAM but i am determined to use x32 version )

    Thanks & Regards. ...

    UEFI is not multi architecture, either x64 only (like your machine) or x86 only
