Hello,

Is it possible to install Windows 7 in "UEFI" without partitions "System" and "MSR"

What are the advantages of UEFI installation on an SSD?

Thanks
Sorry for my english 😄

There are no advantages that cater specifically to SSD (other than native support for TRIM in RAID--without patch that means).

Without MSR partition, yes. Without System (ESP) no.

Ok thank you, no advantage with only one SSD, then.
Boot (initialization of bios) is faster?

With an installation "standard", I did not the partition "System" (only one of the OS)
I do not know if it is the same in UEFI
Sorry for my english 😄

Yes

That is not possible with UEFI installation. The bootmanager MUST be in that partition.

You can't remove it, you have to create the partition structure manually and not include it. With diskpart.

Hello

I can't install Windows 7 in UEFI

I have copied the folder "EFI\Microsoft\Boot" to a level above that found in "EFI\Boot"

Retrieve the Bootmgfw.efi which is located in C:\Windows\Boot\EFI and copy
in the directory EFI\Boot by renaming Bootx64.efi

I boot from the USB key (UEFI), but Windows installs normally (not UEFI)

Why?

Thanks so much

Just copy the entire installation DVD to an empty FAT32 usb drive and boot with UEFI: option from F8 Boot menu:)

Yes, that's what I do, but windows will not install in UEFI...

For Windows 7, must move files, right?

Thanks
