The reason why UHD BD spec takes so long to finalize is not because of all the technical stuff. It's about DRM and how studios can prevent anyone from copying them freely like the BDs. I'm sure they...

A lot of new PCs/motherboards now only ship with BIOS that can support installing Windows 8.x only. No legacy Windows 7 support. You will probably find an older BIOS that still supports Win7.
