  1. Legacy Mode enabled but Windows still boots into UEFI


    I Have legacy support enabled in bios but Windows still boots into UEFI mode. And I need windows to be in legacy to make some changes. Is there something I am missing. I tried using bcdedit to change the boot manager to boot into the non-uefi version. But that didn't work. Can anyone help?

    :)

    UEFI vs Legacy boot mode

    Yep, UEFI mode with Win 10 loading I get the Asus logo.

    IIRC there maybe an option within motherboard UEFI to disable the Asus logo but not looked into it. On another forum I have read that what logo you get at Win 10 loading is the easiest way to know what bios mode OS is in.

    If system is booting in legacy mode - you get Windows Logo.
    If system is booting in UEFI mode - you get OEM logo.

    Above also applies to Win 8 but not Win 7.

    UEFI vs Legacy boot mode

    I just found out I'm running at "Legacy" boot mode.
    Are there any downsides running my Skylake system in "Legacy" boot mode?

    I don't really want to reinstall windows.
    Also I have no problems with my SSD, speeds are as they should be.

    Just booting up my system takes some time, maybe it just would be faster booting with UEFI?
    My Asus Gaming laptop is booting up faster.
    If thats the main difference *Oh Well Legacy Mode enabled but Windows still boots into UEFI :eek:hwell:

    UEFI vs Legacy boot mode

    The only real differences I've noticed are that UEFI mode boots faster and if you have your Motherboard's boot logo enabled, then it replaces the Blue Windows logo when Windows is booting. So you see the motherboard's boot logo the entire time, with the little white spinning dots under it when Windows is loading.
