    Hi,I'm on win8.
    I try to reinstall win8 from win 8 with the OEM recovery Partition tool so i can create a recovery partition.
    I used "autounattened.xml" file from GTP folder.

    Now when i go to Boot menu,i see 2 usb i.e my Jetflash USB & UEFI:Jetflash USB.
    But previously when i normally install win8[With out OEM recovery tool] i can't remember if got two option for Boot.
    As i remember i got only Jetflash USB [I didn't see that UEFI option]
    Is that for "autounattened.xml"???

    & what will happen if i go through UEFI or normal(can i)??

    I hear about some "secure Boot,Can't revert to any OS i.e only one OS" etc about UEFI.
    So can i go back to win 7 normally after installing win 8 in UEFI??

    Now I Check Both Jetflash USB & UEFI:Jetflash USB option & boot with those option.
    In UEFI:Jetflash USB ,I just normally goes to my previous installed Win8 & not booting from USB drive
    Jetflash USB,it gives a error message like can't find drive previously boot.

    I have P8Z68 v-pro/gen3 Mobo with UEFI support.
    But why can't i boot??
    Do i need to modify some boot option???
