    I am working on a project for work.

    I need to build 2 Low end servers that have support for Uefi.

    Here is my issue. I am having a hell of a time finding a motherboard that supports it.

    after a ton of time on google i am no closer.

    I have found boards from asus, msi and intel. newegg doesnt carry them anymore (yes folks socket 775 is dead.)


    Intel is the only one i can find on newegg.
    Intel BOXDP55WB LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel...


    Can anyone suggest another motherboard (it can be intel as well but it must be a diffrent chipset)

    Sadly, all the new Sandy Bridge boards are being suspended/recalled because of the chipset SATA degradation issue. :(

    just means you have to use an add-on sata card if you want many ports as the problem doesn't affect sata 6gbps or ports 1+2 on the sata 3gbps apparently

    but the really hard part is they dont list that as an option when you look at the mb specs.

    there used to be a easy way to tell. if the board supported booting from 3tb drives / partitions. Then gigabyte found away with out using uefi :banghead:

    then dont, you can install windows on a small ssd/usbdrive so why on a 3TB harddrive?

    i dont need to boot from a 3tb drive, i was stating that was one method of finding them. I needed the uefi support for windows installs / and restores.
