MSI boot mode question

So I'm confused about what my BIOS is showing me in 'boot priority'. I have one SSD installed, but two options in boot priority:

 

  • UEFI Hard Disk:Windows Boot Manager (SATA1: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB) *is selected*
  • Hard Disk:Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250G

Furthermore, 'boot mode select' is set to 'LEGACY +UEFI' instead of just UEFI.

If it let's you boot then it's not a problem. Sometimes motherboards do that with boot partitions.

I read that Legacy+UEFI boots slower? Also, I'm getting this weird issue with USB ports disconnecting when Windows loads. So I wondered if this was connected in some way.

did you install fresh copy of Windows when you start using this motherboard?

It usually puts the bootloader first even if there's only one drive. No need to pay attention to it.

Make sure to quote or tag people, so they get notified.

At first, no. But then I installed a fresh copy which fixed the problem temporarily.

This is due to MSI Fast Boot I beleive

 

edit: everything in the original post is normal. If windows is installed in UEFI mode you can change the bios option to UEFI only if you want. It sounds like it is because you have the windows boot manager thing, which is related to the UEFI I think. Mine is the same way
