My friend just let his computer fall to the ground and something appeared to have happened to the hard drive. While the hard drive it's not making terrible sounds (unlike another one I'm fixing as well because it's owner formidably hit it with his arm while he was alseep... accidentally of course) there appears to be some damage. The thing is that the computer is not recognizing Windows 8 x86 USB boot. It only recognizes Windows 8.1 x64 USB boot. I checked and it appears to be that there is this file that the UEFI firmware is checking for: "/efi/boot/bootx64.efi". Both ISOs have that file (although windows 8 is 32 bits so the file is named "bootia32.efi"), but only Windows 8.1 is being recognized as bootable by the UEFI firmware. I need it to recognize the Windows 8 USB boot. EDIT: Also, I can't find options to disable UEFI and enable legacy mode. Otherwise this would be done with already. Any knowledge on what might be going on?
