how to enable legacy boot

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

If your question about legacy boot is because you want to install a Linux distro in your PC, you're wasting your time.

 

That is because once you do that, Win8.1 will not boot anymore -- as both Windows and Linux must be installed using the same boot scheme.

how to enable legacy boot

Every requuest that I've seen on these forums for folks wanting to boot legacy mode on UEFI machines was to install a Linux distro -- and since that is a LOT of work, I thought I'd save you the trouble in advance.

 

However, that said, to change to legacy boot, you have to alter the UEFI settings.

 

Here is information about that: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03801890


Good Luck
