Bios uefi and legacy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I open up system information, and i see bios mode is legacy mode but I believe i have uefi bios because of the looks of my bios. I decided to update bios to the latest version. After that, i went back to system information and it's still in legacy mode. Why is that?

All modern consumer motherboards are UEFI. It's probably on because it's needed for a device in your system. Or you specificly turned it on


Main PC:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X | RAM:G Skill TridentZ RGB 2666 mhz (16Gb) 

Mobo:X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING | GPU: MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z

Case: Old Zalman Z11 Neo with NZXT hue+ | Storage: 128 GB ssd 1 Tb WD blue

Powersupply: Be Quiet straight Power 10 500 watt

 

 

Laptop:

CPU: Core I7 7700HQ | RAM: Samsung 2400 mhz (2x8  GB standard ram)

GPU: GTX 1050 2 GB (I sometimes this for gaming on the go)

Storage: 128 GB M.2 SSD from Kingston and a 1 TB Seagate Barracuda HDD

I've never messed with my bios other than cpu overclocking, still don't get while windows recognize it as "BIOS mode: legacy"
