Как сделать диск более 2 TB загрузочным под x64 Win7 (при условии наличия UEFI BIOS опции)  
You need a boot DVD for Windows 7 X64 (X86 version do not allow EFI boot) placed it in your DVD reader (note that I have tried with a bootable Windows 7 X64 on an USB stick but it did not work). You also need an empty drive where you want to install the system.

Start your system, enter the Asus BIOS and select the “boot” tab.

In the boot tab go to the “Boot Override section”. You should find an entry for your DVD but you should also find another entry at the bottom of the section for the same DVD but prefixed with UEFI: Click on this entry
You should see “Press any key to boot from cd…” press space. You now enter the Windows standard setup (select custom install).

You should eventually be presented a screen with all the disks installed on your system. Locate the disk where you want to install the OS. If you select this disk you may get “Windows cannot be installed to this disk” in that case just ignore the message.

If the disk you want to use is not empty and unpartitioned go to the “Drive Advance” and click delete.

Now we want this disk to use GPT scheme. So type Shift-F10. This brings a command window. Type “diskpart”. Under diskpart> prompt type “list disk”. Locate your disk (in my case disk 1) and type “select disk 1”. Now type “convert gpt”. Just to make sure everything went fine type “list disk”.

The converted disk should now have a star in the GPT column. Type exit and exit. This should close the command window.

Select the disk you have just converted and that should display as “Unallocated Space”. Click next (again do not worry if you have the warning message)

The installation process should start and proceed as usual. After reboot the X64 Windows 7 should be installed on the GPT partitioned disk.

For information I have looked at the content of the drive. For that matter I have restarted the system booting from another disk and looked at the content of the GPT drive. No so many tools are capable to look at or modify GPT partitions. I have used Paragon Hard Disk Manager pro to analyze the disk.

The disk contains 3 partitions:
First one is called GPT System Partition: Partition Type=EFI System Partition, Type=GPT Volume, File System=FAT32, Size=100 MB
Second one is called Microsoft Reserved Partition: Partition type=MSR, Type=GPT Volume, File System=Not formatted (OEM service Volume), Size=128MB
Third one is called Basic data partition: Partition type=Microsoft Basic Data Partition, Type=GPT Volume, File System=NTFS, Size=931 MB

Content of EFI partition:
[EFI] => bootx64.efi
[Microsoft] => [Boot] => content is similar to Boot from an MBR system partition

Only Gentoo, only KDE. :-)

Хозяин-барин, для меня многофункциональность системы первична + количество доступных приложений на торрентах под эту ось

Нет, ну ты попробуй. Серьезно. Будешь приятно удивлен.

Убунту пробовал несколько лет назад. Больше не хочу. Аналогов того же фотошопа и тд выискивать потом влом. И зачем уходить на линукс ? Чтобы потом через wine тоже самое запускать, что и так работало на Windows (плюс не всё будет работать таким способом).
