UEFI BOOT DOES NOT SEE HD

Postby DELTA624826 » Mon Jul 20, 2020 9:37 pm

Dell 7404X, UEFI Boot.
Thus far going "round and round" trying to make either an image or copy the drive.

FINALLY, able to boot UEFI Image Program by forcing UEFI USB as boot.
UEFI for BootIt runs well but only recognizes Boot and External HD. Does not recognize internal HD.

The need is to move a small HD onto a 1 Tb drive.
Is there a document with a "sure fire" way to keep this thing in UEFI?

About ready to switch to Legacy and reload Windows 10.
I see no useful purpose for UEFI. :x

It will only see the devices UEFI BIOS makes available as standard block
devices (drives). You may be able to use Image for Windows or Image
for Linux from a boot disk as well which doesn't use the UEFI BIOS
beyond the initial boot phase.
