You might be wondering if Windows is using UEFI or the legacy BIOS, it’s easy to check.

Just fire up MSINFO32 and look for this entry:



There are two possibilities here, either UEFI or Legacy.

  • the MSINFO32 version that is installed with Windows 7 doesn't have this entry

  • no such entry on samsung np305u1a (amd e-450), although I see efi partition installed. any other way to verify efi/non-efi install? or is presence of the partition enough?

  • Good, Excelente. Simple an functionality.

  • Thank you!  No more fear about dual-boot with Linux!!

  • Ah, mine is UEFI! Thanks!
