There is no difference at all for UEFI boot. Its just the same how you boot through BIOS.

Steps:

1. Change the boot mode from BIOS to UEFI. (Steps will differ for different handware).

For a Dell machine this will look like : http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-blogs-components-weblogfiles/00-00-...

2. Mount the CD / connect the image.

3. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen, if you are performing a TEXT install, otherwise go for a scripted install.

Thats it.. Smiley Happy

Please comeback and post here if you need any more assitance.
