I'd like to have custom Windows 7 or 8 PE, bootable on UEFI (in UEFI boot-mode as well).
Do I need to have Windows ADK installed on UEFI-computer to produce Windows 7 or 8 PE, booting in UEFI-mode on UEFI-computers?
Do I need to have Windows ADK installed on non-UEFI (BIOS)-computer to produce Windows 7 or 8 PE, booting in BIOS-mode on non-UEFI-computers?
Can I have non-UEFI PC to produce universal Windows 7 or 8 PE that would be booting in BIOS/UEFI mode depending on the computer it booting from and how to do this?
