I'll try to be succinct
1) Gigabyte Motherboard Z170X-Gaming 7 was swapped out with the exact same make and model (due to damaged pins).
2) Booting from a system repair disk created during the old motherboard boots just fine. Unable to boot from a system repair disk created with the new motherboard.
3) Attempts to restore system image (created with the old motherboard) will not work, get error message "Windows cannot restore a system image to a computer that has different firmware. The system image was created on a computer using EFI and this computer is using BIOS".
4) I confirmed under "Disk Management" for the primary drive, that there is a 450 mb partition, a 99mb EFI partition, and the rest a NTFS partition. Which my research shows indicative of a computer using EFI.
5) Under system information bios mode says UEFI.
6) So, I think everything shows that my computer and OS is EFI/UEFI yet when I try to restore to an older image it seems to think a firmware difference and that the it's really operating under the old bios mode.
7) I am perplexed, I have checked the settings in the BIOS and from what I can tell it is setup to indicate EFI/UEFI.
Any help would be great. Thanks.
