Possible to boot in "Legacy" BIOS system on new i7 platform?

HP Recommended
Spectre x360 2-in-1 13.5" Touchscreen 14-ea0023dx - Intel Evo Platform - Core i7 - 16G
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Without getting into the weeds as to why, is it possible to set this computer to boot using the legacy BIOS system?

@Scott_Kelley 

To spare you some grief, if you're asking this because, like so many others, you want to install Linux dual-boot in Legacy mode -- then don't waste your time.  Why? Because while that might work, when you then try to boot back into Windows, that will NOT work, so you'll have to change back to UEFI mode.  Then, Linux will not boot.  and so on ...

No - I want to do so for diagnostic reasons.

 

Can anyone tell me if there is an option available on this system for "Legacy" boot mode?
