No no no -- hang on -- that is not how this works.

EFI is the type of system firmware. It is the modern replacement for a
BIOS. Either your motherboard has EFI or it does not. It has nothing
to do with installation options. What you are saying is like saying "I
reinstalled without PS/2 support and the little round socket on the
back disappeared". It doesn't work like that.
