HP Pavilion DV6-2170ep UEFI Bios mode
Hello all from the forum

I have a laptop Pavilion DV6-2170ep from more a less 2010, and i'm trying to install windows 8.1 in a 4Tb Hard Disk.

The thing is that since is a 2010 laptop, it doesn't allow UEFI support option on the bios, so when i try to install windows, it splits the 4 Tb hard drive into 2 Tb hard drives, and the second hard drive becomes useluss

The most recent bios update is from 2010 and still doesn't enable the UEFI support

I would like to request if somebody can mod this bios so it supports UEFI mode, or provide another bios (even from another dv6 model) that can allow that UEFI mode selection for this computer.

The update bios from 2010 can be downloaded from

Thank You in advance for all or any help provided.
