Q: Yoga 720-12IKB -- Can't enable Legacy Bios

Hi. I've got a Yoga 720-12IKB (81B5003QUS) with the latest BIOS update (5GCN20WW). I would like to enable Legacy BIOS mode, but the "Boot Mode" field in the BIOS configuration only allows me to select UEFI. Is there any way to fix this and use Legacy BIOS?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

My hard disk is broken but the computer can't boot from my new replacement hard drive.  I have checked the Bios setting and the legacy boot option is locked.  I disabled secure boot but it still doesn't allow  me to enable legacy boot.  I downloaded the updated BIOS .exe (sp70481.exe) file from HP website but I am not sure if I can flash the BIOS using that file.  Is there anyway that I can enable the legacy boot option so that I can boot from my hard disk?  I appreicate any advise and suggestion.  Thank you.

I have been attempting to Enable Legacy boot and Disable Secure boot on this machine for a few days now.  My current BIOS version is N01 2.05 11/11/2015.  It is the oddest thing.  I am able to make some changes, save and have them succesfully change...but I cannot get legacy to enable and save.  Steps I have taken: - Cleared Secure Boot Keys - Reset- Selected Legacy Support Enable and Secure Boot Disable - Reset- Go back to BIOS --> Boot Options -->Attempt to Uncheck UEFI Boot Order (Unable to) --> Check to see if Legacy Boot is available and its a no go- Then I go back to the secure boot options and verify that none of my changes saved.  I have tried rolling the Bios Version back to 2.04 but that didn't make any difference so I put 2.05 back on it. I am attempting to get these machines to PXE boot to grab our school district's image, but I need Legacy boot enabled to do it.  After several attempts to get Legacy to enable I resolved to just use our Win7 Ent disk BUT can't do that as well as it says the "selected boot image did not authenticate."  Of course the fix I found for this was enable Legacy Boot....which I can't do.  I have looked through the forums and found a few possible solutions, but none of them have worked.  Please help!

A:BIOS Refuses to Enable Legacy Boot

Thank you for the reply.  I ended up doing the following, which worked finally(not sure why):- Updated BIOS back to V 02.05- reset back to factory settings in the main menu- back into bios, set password and ownership tag as needed by the school district i work for--->reboot- back into bios disabled bootable devices usb and cd rom (as is school district tech policy)- went to secure boot options and selected in the drop down "enable legacy and disable UEFI boot" -->reboot- back to bios THIS TIME the check box next to legacy in the boot options menu was available.  I checked the box and was also able to uncheck UEFI boot -->reboot- f12 to PXE boot and like magic it finally worked Again, this is very similar to the process I tried in the begining the only difference was the amount of reboots it took to get it accomplished.  I did have a similar issue with another 800 G2 and no matter what I did it would not PXE boot so I rolled the bios version back to 02.04, restored factory settings and did the process I just oultined above.  AND IT WORKED on that machine.  It is an inconsistant issue we are having with the 50 or so 800 G2s our district purchased this last month.   In any case we are able to get these machines to PXE boot using one of the two methods I just mentioned.  So we're good for now.  Thanks again for your reply.

I am trying to install Windows 7 from a DVD to an HP 19-2113w All-in-One with Windows 8.1 as the factory install. I have entered the BIOS, turned off Secure Boot, restarted, and entered the code to confirm that I want to disable Secure Boot. Upon restarting and going back into the BIOS, Secure Boot shows it is "Disabled." HOWEVER -- when I then go into the boot options and try to enable the legacy boot devices, it gives me a message saying "You must disable Secure Boot before you may configure this option." As I previously stated -- Secure Boot shows "Disabled" when I check under the security tab.  How much more disabled can it get?  Am I missing something here?  Is there any other way to install Windows 7 from a DVD onto this computer?

Hi, Shutdown the notebook. Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Bios Menu ( f10 ). Under the System Configuration tab, expand the Boot Options Menu. Here you should find the option to set Secure Boot to Disabled and Legacy Devices to Enabled. When done, press f10 and select to save the changes. You may then have to enter a 4 digit pin displayed on the screen to confirm the setting changes ( note that you will not see a display of the numbers as you enter tham ) - enter the code and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

A:Disable Secure Boot and enable legacy mode

@Siemen,Did you system originally have WIN 7, as listed here?   If so, the BIOS is correct at rev 7.  You can not  use the newer UEFI graphic cards because there is NO update BIOS available.  Your correct, you do not have a way to disable secure boot and enable legacy. In another post you asked, and got no answer.Yes, the GTX 660 will work, with an adequate new PSU.  Recommend EVGA GTX 600 and Corsair CX600 PSU.  On the GTX 750Ti inquiry, only chance would be the Hybrid vBIOS cards.  PSW<> The GTX 670's are a tad touchy.

I have the latest BIOS firmware AMI Version 80.52 installed but the problem existed prior to this update. I upgraded from Windows 8.0 to Windows 10 when Microsoft made it available for free installation but I did create an HP Recovery set prior to this. This I have used in attempt to restore the Pavilion 500-141ea back to its factory state but it has been an absolute waste of time because this has made no difference and I still cannot enable Legacy mode when I wish to use it. Please can someone offer a solution to this frustrating issue ... and for those that may question why I need the Legacy mode option, I like to try out Live Disc Linux Distros occasionally, some of which will not boot from the DVD drive!

Hi, I've recently bought a Lenovo Yoga 3-1170 (80J8), and all worked well till I decided to have dual boot Windows/Linux. Linux works great. I installed a clean copy of Windows 10 in Legacy mode. It worked well untill the HD5300 graphics card driver was installed when the screen started flickering. I've been trying like mad  all possible drivers, screen brightness and power-saver configurations but nothing worked. Then I realized it could be the UEFI, so I installed a clean copy of Windows 10 on UEFI mode and worked fine. If I then change to Legacy support with UEFI as first option, the screen flickers again although Windows is in the UEFI. So it's clearly a problem of the BIOS. Any idea how to solve the problem?

I have been working on a fiends desktop - HP Compaq Presario SR5540AN all day as he said it had got to running very slow,after cleaning out a half kilo of dust and crud from everywhere especially the stock CPU cooling fins which I originally thought was letting the CPU get too hot (AMD Athlon II 5400).

I have replaced the RAM sticks (increasing the RAM) replacing the stock cooling fan because the bearing was really rough done sfc, chkdsk /f /r MBAM and SAS scans tried to to run Seatools for Windows but it did not recognise the 320GB Seatool drive so I cloned it to another spinner which the Seatools did recognise and done just about everything I can think of, Now the clone reacted in exactly the same way. Checking the drives I can only find the main C" partition there is no 100MB MBR partition. All drivers seem to be in place too.

In the BIOS there is a Plug and Play YES/NO set to yes and I don't know if setting it to NO will make any difference.

Personally I think the original drive has gone up the swanee without a paddle.

Now I don't have his install OEM disk with me or I would try a repair install any ideas please because I am chasing my tail here. So any ideas welcome.

I recently spent a lot of time doing a Windows 10 and SSD upgrade on my old Dell AIO.  Everything worked great for several months until a power outage killed my motherboard.  It was old so I purchased a Lenovo AIO 300-23ISV as a replacement.  My preference would be to legacy boot my old SSD in the Lenovo but I have tried every setting possible and can not make it work. No matter what setting I try I am unable to turn off Secure Boot.  This option is never selectable in the BIOS.  I have changed every other setting to Legacy that I can find but I keep getting Error 1962.  I tried botting off a Windows 10 USB that I created with the Media Creation Tool but I cant even get that to boot.  There are 3 boot sequences listed in BIOS: Primary Boot Sequence, Error Boot Sequence, Automatic Boot Sequence.  I messed with all 3 with no success. F12 just launches me back into BIOS instead of giving me a boot menu.  Any suggestions on what I am missing here? I know UEFI has advantages and I may end up reformatting but shouldn't this thing be able to boot using my old SSD?

Hello,

Right before I performed a clean install of Windows 8.1 x64 on my Inspiron 3520, I switched to the Legacy BIOS *facepalm*.

When I enter the legacy BIOS and enabled "secure boot", I performed a restart that gave the following message "internal hard disk drive not found, to resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive. No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 enter setup menu, F5 enter PSA". Of course, when I go back into the BIOS and disable secure boot, it reverts back to legacy and boots up Windows 8 just fine. What I'd like to know is, how can I revert back to UEFI so I can change the boot-up option and perform a clean install under UEFI.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've found a couple articles but I just want to make sure I'm headed in the right direction and if maybe there is a safer and easier way to get this done...

I mean, when I plug the USB to my laptop, the UEFI does not recognize it, only the Legacy BIOS does.
Is it possible to simply proceed to install the other Linux using Legacy mode? Or it will cause problems?

Thanks

A:Installing some OS's in UEFI and some using Legacy BIOS

I am never a fan of using dual boot. I have Windows 10 installed on a separate GPT SSD and Linux installed in MBR SSD and run them separately using Boot Menu so they are completely independent from each other.

I did mention in your other thread that dual booting using MBR is preferable which you can set the Windows boot manager and GRUB boot loader separately. The traditional way is Linux override the MBR and took over the booting process for both Windows & Linux. The non traditional way is to put the GRUB Boot loader in its own partition then use Easy BCD to set up the dual boot, this way they are independent so if there's an update/upgrade from either one, you won't break anything. In addition, you'll get a nice GUI dual boot Menu from Windows, not the ugly GRUB.

Here's an example:

GRUB controls the booting process for both Windows and LinuxPut GRUB in its own partition and use Easy BCD to set up dual boot.
NOTE: During Linux installation, you have to tell Linux not to use sda (MBR in Windows) but its own partition.

The Windows 7 download for WinHlp32.exe passes validation and downloads ok, but since it is a windows update, not an executable installation, it does not recognize Windows 8 RP as a valid OS for installation.

Is there a workaround that anybody knows about?

Dell Latitude E5440 I fresh installed 8.1 but, as the bro' in the Acer UEFI thread [just resolved] said, I have the same: the latest Dell BIOS does not give any options at all in UEFI mode - that is, there is no table of boot device choice sequencing, and neither the ADD or REMOVE functions, though the buttons are in the UI beside the UEFI option switch - no worky. press add, get no response; press REMOVE, no response. When I tried to set UEFI [which appeared to succeed], booted with the SD card with Win8.1 on it per the Microsoft USB burn tool, it didn't recognize a bootable device [sorta makes sense, only lenovo gets this right in my experience]. Put that device in USB Adapter, started system, "no device". Tried the F12 menu, no USB option shown. Wash/rinse/repeat.

Finally switched back to Legacy Mode, and everything worked, I installed 8.1 but...
All looked OK until Win update downloaded a long list of updates to 8.1 as expected. appeared to go ok. hours later I "Shut Down" the system. On next boot, lots of ERRORS, the root of which seems to be wuauserv locked in perpetual "stopping" state. There was one of the Updates that failed to reach the "Installed" state in the log.

nevermind all the errors, but my question is whether this is a fundamental mistake when installing 8.1. Will it forever cause grief if not installed with the Drive formatted in UEFI mode? If that is the case, am I better off to use a 3rd party util t... Read more

A:Consequences of installing in Legacy BIOS mode? 8.1 Pro

If disk is formatted in GPT (as required by UEFI) instead of NTFS windows might be installing UEFI, it's always better if possible to start from scratch on freshly cleaned and formatted disk.

I bought a brand new HP Pavillion 17G053US from Office Depot.
It came with OEM installed win 8.
I did a fresh install of win 8.1 pro x64.
I had to do this with Legacy Support enabled, and secure boot disabled.
I used an 8 GB USB 2.0 stick for the install, the win 8.1 iso image was applied using rufus 2.3.
During the install, I reformatted the HD, removing all the OEM partitions.
I also used diskpart to convert the format of the HD from GPT to MBR.
The installation seems successful, except for a strange WLAN issue (extremely limited range despite loading the drivers).
I would also like to boot in UEFI to benefit from the faster start up times, etc.
BUT if I change the BIOS config by disabling legacy support, then it will no longer boot from HD.
The resulting error message says something to the effect of "please install an OS on the HD"
I suspected that perhaps this may be due to my converting the HD format from GPT to MBR,so I converted back to GPT, reinstalled, and still, must boot with Legacy support enabled....
 
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

I have a BIOS which is comfigured to UEFI and I want to automate the reconfiguration to LEGACY.
I use the command: CCTK --LEGACYOROM=ENABLE --valsetup=password
but i do get an error...the  command is not working.

Any idea how I can automate the configuration from EUFI to LEGACY ?
PS. the otherway around (LEGACY to UEFI) is working fine.

A:CCTK and configure BIOS to LEGACY mode

Hi johanpol,Did you check in the BIOS to disable the secure boot and then disable the UEFI to change the BIOS to Legacy mode.Also, reply us with the system model so that we can check for options.
