How to activate Legacy Boot in Windows

Many users of Linux and Windows 7 are still using legacy boot more, UEFI has gone far and works better. However, that does not mean that some users will not need the old boot mode. To enable Legacy boot in Windows 10, you will have more difficulty than some previous Windows repetitions.

How to access BIOS/UEFI settings

Now, here is the procedure you need to follow under Windows 10 to access the BIOS / UEFI settings:

  1. Press Windows + I to open Settings.
  2. Click Update & Security.
  3. Select Recovery from the left pane.
  4. In Advanced startup, click Restart now.
  5. Select Troubleshoot.
  6. Select Advanced options.
  7. Select  UEFI Firmware Settings  and click  Restart.Then, navigate to Startup and replace UEFI with the Legacy option (or Legacy BIOS). On the other hand, if the option turns gray, you’ll need to set the Administrator password and restart your device.Enter the boot password and re-access the BIOS/UEFI settings. You will be able to switch to Legacy mode this time. We recommend that you delete the Administrator password later, as it will pop up every time you start your computer.

    That’s it. If you have any alternative you can give us, do so. The comment section is just below.
