The USB boot drive did not show up initially. I had to enable legacy mode in the bios first. No biggy, it worked great after that change.
Will there be EFI boot support in the future?
Will there be EFI boot support in the future?
Yes! The UEFI/EFI alternative to the BIOS didn't even exist in 2004 when SpinRite 6.0 was released. So it was never an issue then. And it hasn't really been an issue until much more recently. But it is today. So, due to the clear need for SpinRite to support UEFI booting from here on, SpinRite's development Roadmap was resequenced to move UEFI support for USB and NVMe. We wish it was possible to do everything at once, since older BIOS-based systems would rather have native USB and NVMe support. But with SpinRite v6.1, those older BIOS-based systems will be getting a huge boost with SpinRite's native IDE/SATA/AHCI support. So we then want to make that available to all UEFI systems, after which all systems will be able to benefit from all further advances, which will be to immediately work on adding native USB and NVMe support.
