Hey, everyone. I’m installing WINDOWS 10 on a new disc (Western Digital Black, 4T) using the installation USB from Microsoft. Can anyone tell me the difference between choosing to boot from UEFI: KDI-MFSTWINDOWS 10 PMAP, Partition 1 and choosing to boot from KDI-MSFTWINDOWS 10 PMAP? Thanks.

    If your system supports UEFI, you'll want to choose the "UEFI: KDI-MSFTWindows 10 PMAP, Partition 1".

    If your system doesn't support UEFI, for example if you have legacy hardware you'll want to choose "KDI-MSFTWINDOWS 10 PMAP".

    Best regards,
