Does it UEFI boot a Windows 7 X86_64 install disk?
I just tried it, and yes, Win7 SP1 x64 seems to install and work in UEFI mode.
After win7 x64 installation I verified there is a GPT system partition on the hdd,

Does Intel think it's broken?
I opened a thread about it on Intel forums/communities,
