Q: hp 11-n010dx legacy boot

I am not sure which OS is on this unit so I am assuming it's windows 8. I want to load a linux disc to attempt a data recovery but I don't know how to enable the legacy boot option to boot from USB optical drive? The down arrow will stop at Network Adapter in the UEFI Boot Order. I have attached a screenshot of the BIOS, help please?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Just enable Legacy Support and disable Secure Boot. If disabling Secure Boot gives you access to Clear All Secure Boot Keys, you may need to do that too.

Is there currently any way to configure a custom boot logo for UEFI booting? I can only find methods for Legacy users, but no luck with UEFI.

I'm kind of new to custom boot logos, so if anybody could give me some information as to if it's possible first?

I have disabled the secure boot option and enabled the Legacy boot option which allows me to boot from USB stick. However, UEFI takes precendence over Legacy boot and I don't want that. For a little school project that we are running we want to run the educational OS Sugar on Stick(on a USB stick) to run straight from the stick instead of kids pressing 3-4 different buttons to get to that.  In short, I want to change boot priority from UEFI first to Legacy. Let me know how to do it? Whether its possible or not? If not, then I don't need these 4 laptops that I ordered and I will return the laptops. Thanks a lot in advance. -Ritesh

I've been wondering if it's possible to use the legacy (Windows 7 and earlier) BIOS instead of UEFI in Windows 8.1. In my BIOS settings, there is an option to enable the legacy boot mode, but Windows won't boot whenever this is enabled (I get the message 'Operating System not found' instead). Is there any way to enable this?

NOTE: I am not talking about secure boot; I already have that disabled.

Thanks in advance.

After installing an HP BIOS update about a week ago I can't boot the way I've been booting the laptop. HP offered through the support assistnt application a BIOS update. After installing that update, when I boot I am taken to a blue screen that appears to be from the BIOS firmware in the laptop telling me it can't find a certain file needed to boot. It always has booted without issue before that update. I rolled back the BIOS update and it still did not boot, so I have switched to using legacy support in BIOS with the hard drive the first boot option instead of using the HP Boot Manager option. It works fine with this arrangement but I thought I'd post this here to let others know that updating their BIOS may lead to a similar issue, and also wondered if anyone has addressed this issue on their laptop. Thanks!!!Donald

Have tried repairing with Windows 7 boot disk which gives me back the timeout but then Windows 8 can't boot if selected. Very frustrating. Has anyone else come across this?

Hello, I am having an issue with downgrading to Windows 7 and It's not nearly as easy as normally installing an OS. I get to the expanding files screen, and once the system reboots it goes back to the Windows 7 install screen. This is an issue, because it should continue with the installation. Does anybody know why this would occur or how to fix it? I'm sure there's likely something I missed. This is rather urgent, so any help would be appreciated.

I have an older Dell laptop with no secure boot that has Windows 8.1. I shrank the partition and installed Linux for a dual boot setup. Normally I install the GRUB2 to the root of the Linux partition so I don't "see" the Linux installation at all until I use easybcd to create a boot menu item. Easybcd wipes out the pretty blue GUI boot screen and you end up with the black and white "legacy" menu. This was all expected.

Now the weird part. Sometimes when I boot the computer I get the black and white boot screen and sometimes I get the modern GUI boot screen. I prefer the black and white boot screen because the modern boot screen does a second reboot when you select a linux installation. Can somebody take a look at my bcdedit file and see if I am overlooking something.


A:Boot menu alternates between Modern GUI and Legacy modes

I may have found my own answer. After looking over the file again I see that the bootmenupolicy is set to Standard. I changed it to Legacy to see if that cures the problem. I followed the instructions from here.

I recently installed Linux onto a second drive, but I can't get it to boot by the other hard drive. It's a legacy hard drive, when I try to change the boot order it still keeps the UEFI on top and there's no way to move it down.

A:How do you Switch Legacy Hard Drive to Boot by Default

You have to first disable Secure Boot in the BIOS and set the BIOS to legacy mode (unless you have a Linux distro that supports UEFI). If the permanent settings do not work, try changing the temporary boot order.

Hi,We want the Pc to boot from the PXE. We already set the boot order to Legacy boot and its also set that it should boot from the network. But it simply doesn´t do so. So our first thought was that we have to update the BIOS Version.Is it possible that the issue is caused by the BIOS version? If it is it would be nice if you tell us at which version this is fixed. If not I would appreciate if you could help us find the problem why the PC is booting from the hard drive and not from the network as it is set. Thanks.

Hi I've edited this post to make users aware the Sandisk Ultra II SSD has issues with the 450 G3 in legacy mode.  It's simply not visible in the boot options under legacy only UEFI.  I have spent hours and hours and it doesn't work on a 240 and 480 gb models I have running the latest firmware.  I've posted messages on the Sandisk forums reporting the very likely bug. I think I'll stick to Samsung which 850 Evo works perfectly!

The other day when I got up I noticed that my laptop was rebooting after the splash screen. I thought that my mobo was fried. I had a similar thing happen once when I was altering the BIOS settings and changed one of them to compatibility (I don't remember which one it was but was regarding the HDD mode) anyway I went into the BIOS and changed the legacy support to disabled and the system booted fine. Does anyone know what happened? Was there an update that could have caused this or possible virus? or has my mobo started to die? I realize that I need to add more info before I can get to the bottom of this so please let me know what I need to post for info. Thanks

As per the title, I changed this laptop's boot mode from "UEFI - Secure Boot" to "Legacy" in order to do a boot-time virus scan from USB (with ESET - it didn't find anything fwiw).
However, when I changed boot mode back to "UEFI - Secure Boot", it says it can no longer find any OS.
When I use a Win10 disc to boot into rescue mode, if I go into the command prompt and use dir, I can see that all the files are still there, so the drive hasn't been wiped (thank god) or anything.
I've tried using Win10's default "Startup Repair" option, which doesn't appear to work. I've tried using bootrec /fixmbr and /fixboot, and even /rebuildbcd, none of which are helping it find the OS.
Any thoughts?

Here is the Service Manual: Manual Hard drive replacement is shown on page 36 of the Manual. Your laptop, by the specs, came with a 500 gig 5400 rpm drive. This model only uses the superslim 7mm hard drives so that is what you need to buy. There are also options for an M.2 solid state drive or a regular-sized SATA solid state drive in lieu of the slower 5400 rpm mechanical drive. In other words, this would be your opportunity to speed it up a bit.  This would be a 7200 rpm mechanical drive of 500 gigs and would be a nice replacement at a low cost: Solid state drive which would replace the hard drive: If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi all,

Currently having a wake on lan issue with a certain computer.

The machine is setup correctly but the windows boot information is stored in a 100mb UEFI partition, and when the computer wakes on lan, it will not boot windows, just sit at a blank screen.

When it wakes on lan it is trying to boot from the legacy device (same blank screen happens if you choose to boot from it from bios)

ive tried updating the bios but no luck, all settings seem to be as they should be.

Is there some trick to get it to load the UEFI MBR, or is there a safe way other then reformatting the machine to move the MBR over to the legacy device itself?

Thanks for any help.

A:Boot UEFI from wake on lan, or convert UEFI MBR to legacy.

Back up your files, unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk: remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

Looking through my BIOS settings and noticed a setting called "Legacy USB" and it is enabled. I noticed that according to the latest BIOS upgrade that the default for this setting was "disabled"

Currently my printer, my digital camera and an external hard drive are connected to USB ports. Should this setting be enabled or not?

A:Legacy: Yes or No

Probably not. You usually need it enabled if you have a USB Keyboard or USB mouse that you need to use during a boot up (befor you get to windows). Enabling it can cause some problems with USB printers and other USB devices on some systems.

I have just finished making myself a decent gaming rig and im on the last step at the moment; which is installing Windows 7. I have noticed that when trying to install Windows on my pc there's two option: one is Legacy and the other is UEFI, and since I'm not really and expert when it comes to such things, I decided to postpone the installation process until I figure this out. So, which of these should I choose as an installation method? I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me with that. Thank you!

A:UEFI or Legacy?

UEFI has some advantages over BIOS,such as:

Faster booting
Support of 128 logical partitions
Support for disks which have a size of over 2.2 TB
Support for Legacy BIOS

Since your desire is gaming,install with UEFI. There's no reason to go with BIOS unless you have old hardware.

Hi I have a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista and I use Firefox I somehow got infected simultaneously by the Security Toolkit and Quick Defragmenter malware and after a couple of passes by MAM antimalware I got it wrong the first time and used the Bleeping Computer advice the second time which did the trick so kudos I got rid of Help! Legacy Malware the malware I think But I Help! Malware Legacy am left with a pretty nasty legacy All of the protections the bug created for itself are still there so for instance I can only access Windows explorer in safe mode and I still get the following warning coming up when I try to open programmes quot Windows detected a hard disk problem Scanning for hard drive errors Hard drive scan helps to detect yada yada quot I can open them after about three tries or right clicking and coming in as an admin for firefox The worst problem is that the little bastard crashes my system approximately every minutes or so irrespective of what I am doing as follows First Message quot You are running every low disk space on Local Disk C quot Then instantly Second message quot Windows - No Disk Exception Processing Message x Parameters x FEFE x Help! Malware Legacy x FEFE x FEFE quot Then instantly Third Message Windows Delayed Write Filed note - not Failed Windows was unable to save all of the data for the file Systems A The data has been lost This error may may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware Then instantly Fourth Message quot Windows - no Disk Exception processing message x Parameters x A C x C CAA x A C x A C Same messages every time Then after a minute s grace or so I get this message quot A critical error has occurred while indexing data stored on hard drive quot and the machine then reboots while letting me save what I am working on if I m quick Finally upon re-booting this message appears which starts the whole cycle again quot Warning The system has been restored after a critical error Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required quot I presume from reading your site that the malware has left something behind in the rootkit but I have no idea how I might deal with this issue and would be grateful for your help in sorting it out and also re-establishing the functions which were disabled by the malware eg defragmentation although I was able to defragment using C defrag and I have loads Gb of space on the drive no remote access and so on Best Regards Chris

I am trying to Initialize TPM on windows 8.1 and it is saying..
"Your TPM is currently running in Legacy mode. If you'd like to use TPM application for this version of Windows, Please contact your administrator."
Now I have clear TPM once. Disable and enable it in BIOS still no change. I am using UEFI bios and secure boot is enabled.
Can someone suggest how can I enable TPM coz I need to encrypt my hard drive without TPM it is a very hard thing to do.

A:TPM Legacy Mode

there is a key OSManagementAuthLevel .. that seems to control if the tpm runs in legacy mode.
It can be changed using local policy or domain policies
(Configure the level of TPM owner authorization available to the operating system)

If your machine is not in the domain I would set that to full
(or in registry to 4)

Really best option is to run it in a virtual machine. You would need a licence but old XP licences (for example) and disks are very cheap on ebay. Of course, there is a risk of a scam, but probably lower than buying Windows 7.

As a rule, security of XP (if you chose that) is an issue, but less risk inside a VM but you should install an AV package to be sure.

Is it safe to disable it? Some tech on the logitech forums told me to cause my mouse would sometimes crap out on restart, just with the light blinking and i would have to unplug it and re plug it.

So im wondering is it safe to disable usb legacy mode in bios? do i need it?

Hello Soto,

I would just leave it enabled in case you need it. It will not harm anything to do so, or use any additional resources.

Hello, I'm trying to enable legacy  boot on my HP 20 all-in-one PC and I'm running into a bunch of trouble. So first of all here is what my secure boot settings look like  As you can see secure boot should be disabled here, but there is no option to enable legacy boot as it's shown in the guide on the HP website. When trying to change boot options all that I run into is this  and pressing F5 gives this error message   I'm also running the latest BIOS version that I could download on the HP drivers page  Please help me solve this specific case while knowing that I've already read This guide, and thank you in advance.

I'm not sure what to post this under but I need help!

Some time ago we were running a 5 workstation peer to peer network running Windows 98 on a 10 base T network. We used a program called CEI which is a healthcare application. It ran fine on this setup. We upgraded our network to a 20 workstation client / server based network running Windows 2000 Professional on the workstations and Windows 2000 Server on a 100 Base TX network. The problem were having is the speed of CEI. It went from going a few seconds between screen redraws to 1.5 mins at it's worst. I can not figure out why! When I attached a Win98 machine to the new server it runs fine. Any suggestions? The server (just for reference) is running DHCP, DNS, and Active Directory.
Thanks in advance,

I am not a happy camper with Windows 8.
I am confused with the Legacy and the UEFI boot methods. The reason I am confused I think, is because I read to darn much on the Internet. One bit of confusion is with respect to changing from UEFI to Legacy. It would appear from some comments that if I do that, Windows 8 won't boot anymore. I would have to change back to UEFI for indows 8 to boot. I also read that changing back to UEFI could be a major problem when trying to access the BIOS. No, I am confused. My ultimate goal is to set my laptop up to dual boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu. Like I have been doing for the last multiple years with XP and Windows 7.
Helpful comments would certainly be appreciated.

I don't quite understand what UEFI is, it is firmware, or is it Microsoft's new Boot GUI? I've set my systems to boot Legacy mode, and since I did that, I have no trouble getting into Safe Mode.

Does UEFI access your BIOS as well? That's what I'm worried about. The idea of not being able to access the BIOS from outside Windows 8 makes me itch. I think the Legacy Menu may allow that though - You can set it to Legacy, and if you can't access the Bios, then you can switch it back. I forget the command lines to set it, but they are in a tutorial here. It's BCDedit.

We have migrated our WinNT network to a W2k network by upgrading our NT PDC. This created a new active directory domain ABD.Local. All of the workstations (W2k pro) still log in to the legady domain or almost the legacy domain. There was an & in the legacy domain name and the upgrade removed it.

Although every thing seems to be working, our network security auditor want us to get rid of the legacy domain.

The proposed solution is the setup a new DC stand alone and then migrate all the user information to it. This will also cause some grief with our Exschange server.

Does anyone have a better solution?

Upgraded my sisters machine from 98 to XP. She has a NEC Silentwriter Superscript 660 laser printer. NEC does not make an XP driver. I found a thread suggesting that the Minolta pageworks pro 1100 driver was a good substitute. Installed the driver, but all it does is initialize the printer. Will not print. Emailed NEC tech support ( who according to aforementioned thread recomended the Minolta driver). NEC said there were no plans for an XP driver. Thought I would give 2k driver a shot but no luck. Install was canceled by the OS.
Anyone have any ideas? Reverting to 98 would be a last resort.

Thanks in advance

A:Legacy printer and XP

dual booting the drive with 98 and xp could be one solution. copy xp files over for 98
to print later. best of both worlds? or buy new model printer. make small partition for ?

I have just installed the new vers. 8.0 of Legacy Family Tree software but when I attempt to open it I get an empty window with just the words "lblMessage" with no other information. I have tried Legacy support but they are not answering the messages I leave. I am running on Win 8.0. I have never seen this message before so would appreciate some help if anyone knows what it means.

Thank you...

If that program as yet to run correctly on win/8, then you might need to run it in compatibility mode - - which edition of win/8 are you using {home,pro,ultimate}?
