So, all new with this UEFI vs MBR is about SecureBoot.
While keeping the option on in bios, how do you install the os?

http://www.uefi.org/

What UEFI version do you use?

What are the differences between the two recommended partition schemes?
http://technet.micro...1(v=ws.10).aspx

Which one do you use? What is the UEFI booting procedure and what is the purpose for each partition?



It is OK to use this?

What does it do?

Thanks!

No, it's about BIOS contrary to UEFI firmware.
MBR and GPT is another case. GPT supports disks greater 2 TB.
Yes, windows defaults UEFI with GPT.
 

While keeping the option on in bios, how do you install the os?

Boot from the installation media and follow the gui.
Or http://technet.micro...y/hh825089.aspx


What about using a UEFI virtual machine, e.g. VMware Player?
 

What are the differences between the two recommended partition schemes?

Recovery Winre.wim at a additional partition, or inside windows partition.
And a custom Recovery partition. If you like to use this, create a partition.
 

What is the UEFI booting procedure and what is the purpose for each partition?

http://en.wikipedia....mware_Interface
UEFI reads the files from the System partition.

 

It is OK to use this?

Yes, it is.
