I have a elitedesk 800 g6 that we need to install win10 32 bit on.  I am unable to find any option(after following steps to enable it) that enables legacy mode

 

bios version 02.05.01 Rev.A

@seandarcher 

Some of the new PCs that come with Win10 preloaded simply do not have the BIOS/CSM/Legacy mode option in the settings.

 

If you specifically create Windows installation media for UEFI systems, you might be able to use it without having to change the mode.

 

If you have an ISO file, you can use RUFUS to create UEFI media from that:  https://rufus.ie/en_US/

 

Good Luck

Using rufus to create either an NTFS or Fat32 UEFI boot drive for a 32bit OS did not resolve the problem, it would appear that the bios will only accept 64bit UEFI boot drives.
