Re: Bios Mode

You're very welcome, Mick.

 

Yes, it does. 

 

Your PC has a legacy BIOS, so there are no 'legacy' descriptors for that in any utility.

 

Back then, since there was no such thing as UEFI, the legacy BIOS' were the only ones around, so they weren't called legacy.

Re: Bios Mode

Hi:

 

The BIOS in your PC is not a UEFI BIOS.

 

The biggest drawback to that would be that the hard drive is limited to a maximum of 2 TB if used as a boot drive.
