    I have a PC that is setup for dedicated UEFI booting (no legacy compatibility as that is the way I want it) and I'm trying to install Vista on it. The boot process seems to recognise that there is a DVD in the system as it acknowledges it and then continues to try other boot devices. (without a UEFI DVD this acknowledgement does not occur)

    I know I need Vista SP1 64 bit for UEFI and that is what I have. I verified this by installing Vista with the same media into a Virtual Machine (Legacy BIOS mode) and it installed fine.
    I obtained the Vista media from a Digital River download a while ago and created the install ISO using the instructions I found on google. I can't yet post the link to the instructions as I haven't yet reached the forum posting requirements :)
