Should my computer use Mint Debian version?

Postby laika207 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:24 pm


I have this mainboard : Asrock B75 pro 3M with UEFI Legal BIOS with GUI support
I have one SSD and one HDD. I want to install Linux Mint Debian , dual boot with Windows 7 on SSD samsung 830 for OS and a WD HDD for data

However, I read on mint debian home page that :
No EFI, GPT or secureBoot support.

Should I be concern about this cons ? Could linux mint, SSD, my mainboard and ivychip 3225 (intel HD graphic 4000) work properly together? Do you have any notice for me when setup this system.
