Didn't I tell you to select the UEFI version of the DVD in the BIOS too?
There is a hitch involved if you boot efi mode the disk will be formatted as gpt.
If you boot into efi mode and the hard disk is mbr then you can't install. in a perfect world the bios would see the two modes available and then prompt you which one do you want.
