hi peeps, i recently picked up an MSI GE70-2OE-238UK. I've installed an mSata SSD and formatted it etc.
Now, I have a windows 8 pro disk and I want to boot and install in UEFI mode. But UEFI mode won't let me boot fron CD.
Under fixed boot drive priority, i disabled the HDD and set DVD to 1st, but upon restart, it boots me to bios.
i also tried disabling Windows boot manager under BBS priorities, still no luck.
I can boot and install in legacy mode, but i really want windows 8 in UEFI mode.

Really frustrated over here, please shed some light on this matter :(
thanks a bunch,
Kevin
