All computers that ship with Windows 8 pre-installed and that have a Windows 8 logo on the computer hardware should boot in EFI mode. If you installed Windows 8 yourself, though, it might boot in either EFI mode or in BIOS mode. This information is critical because it's almost always easiest to install Linux in the same boot mode as Windows, and this in turn affects the boot manager and/or boot loader that you use and how you install it. This this subpage of the rEFInd documentation for more information on how to determine your boot mode.
