All 64-bit versions of PCs running Windows with a logo from
the Windows Certification Program will use UEFI

Such PC hardware will be deemed to be OWNED by Microsoft
Windows. You are free to put into your Windows Computers
(WC) whatever you like, providing certified as being safe
and appropriate by Microsoft.

Microsoft have noted that some users have been putting sh*t
in their WC, Microsoft insists such practice desists and expects
users to only flush $$$'s into their WC.

When you buy a PC with the Windows logo you are not actually
buying a PC for yourself, but are buying a WC. Whilst you have
paid for the hardware, Microsoft deem that you do not own that
hardware. This is a convergence with how MIcrosoft software is
deployed.

I just happen to have a Toshiba Satellite model L555D-S7005 that came new with Windows 7 64bit on it. And it does not have UEFI at all!
Maybe it is an exception to your statement as I also checked the BIOS and there is no sign of UEFI even mentioned in the settings.

I did notice when checking out the latest stable version of Gparted-live that it comes with EFI which I am assuming, maybe wrong is UEFI boot code for booting on a UEFI PC.

That is because it has Win 7 instead win 8 or win 8.1
which are those that should have UEFI But that is only
what I have heard maybe thre are exceptions to that too?
