  1. Use Device Manager's Firmware option and select Boot from EFI Internal Shell.
  2. Use the EFI internal shell, as follows:
    1. Start the EFI internal shell from the EFI boot menu and select the drive with the Windows product DVD or Windows PE. The following example assumes that the drive is Fs0:

      Shell> Fs0:
    2. Start the EFI boot application. For example, on an x64 system, run the following command:

      fs0:> \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI For an Intel Itanium system, run the following command:

    3. After the application starts, you may be immediately prompted to press a key to boot from the drive to continue. Press a key to continue booting from the installation media.

    4. After the installation is complete, you can check whether Windows used the EFI boot environment by running DiskPart and verifying that the drive is formatted using the GPT file structure and that the ESP and MSR partitions are present.

Can legacy bios ever boot gpt efi, say with a linux efi emulation.

Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.

Windows 8.1 Setup: failed to launch the setup application.

windows 8 uses a different bios to windows 7
you may have to change the bios settings to use UEFI to get windows 8.1 to work if the p.c has the capability to run in uefi mode

How do I exit out of the uefi bio utility mode it keeps going back to the same screen when I exit

When it boots back to the uefi bios page there should be some settings tab/s that you can change the boot from uefi only to normal the only other things i can suggest if you dont want to go into those settings to far for whatever reason , when it boots into your bios from uefi mode press f10 or whatever the defualt settings button may be for your bios, make sure you save and exit then aoll should be fine , FAIL THE ABOVE , ITS TIME FOR A BIOS UPDATE !!

Computer wont load shows emachine sign then goes to reboot screen

right go into the bios and look through the options until you find one that says either UEFI or Legacy, make sure they are legacy. If you don't have this option, find out your bios version and then update it try again in the bios and see if this works if not switch to UEFI and then try again
