Boot Faster Than Legacy Mode

As UEFI able to customize causing it to boot faster than Legacy BIOS. This is because UEFI no need to self test the system as the Legacy mode does.

Compatibility Issue

Recognize Bigger Harddrive Partition

UEFI able to support Harddrive more than 2 TB capacity. To be able boot using UEFI mode, you need to replace MBR to GPT system.

UEFI can have more than 4 primary partitions.

Secure Startup

UEFI able to check integrity of Operating system when booting to make sure the operating system not changed by any malicious program.
