I'm not sure an "easy" way to tell the difference between UEFI and
BIOS, although I've never seen a UEFI (BIOS) configuration screen
where you weren't able to use the keyboard and mouse with it.  I'm
really  not sure, although it seems odd to have sdb and sda without
having 2 hard drives, unless I misunderstand your initial email.  One
other thing, it may have installed GRUB to sdb instead of sda, and
some systems don't like it when second hard drive is the bootable one.
 The missing partitions are somewhat interesting as well.  What
filesystem did you choose?
