    Hey guys does this laptop support UEFI? I searched on this thread and saw someone saying it does support.
    I looked into HWInfo on motherboard section and it says it does support UEFI.
    But when I try to boot my USB stick with UEFI Windows 10 CU, it doesn't boot.
    Why is HWInfo saying is support UEFI?

    Usually it's a hybrid mode due to the GPU not supporting UEFI and the architecture of the BIOS is quite old. It's from a bit before UEFI became a think in notebooks.

    Gave this laptop to my dad years ago, he just uses it as a file server.

    He just told me that it's now beeping then shutting off.

    I need guidance on what the issue could be. Finally the 6970M gone bad, maybe?

    1. Does anyone know how I could determine what mobo is in my Sager/Clevo/Xotic NP8170, build date 03-18-11?
    My Xotic build sheet lists everything but the mobo info. Do not want to open it up.

    2. Are there any vendors who might still stock the mobo?

    Thx
    Steve

    You need to make sure the cards are the same interface. You are asking very specific questions about old hardware so give as much info as you can, do you have pictures?
