I have the ASUS M5A97 which has the UEFI system.
PClinuxos,Fedora17 both run. The bios is a Linux system, it seems to recognise
the installation system because Linux has no problems and Windows 7+ instals
with the UEFI extension.
32 bit pclos will not install if win7-64 is installed., 64 bit has no
USB 3,sata 3 very good.
