UEFI Mode (default)—Configures the system to boot to a UEFI compatible operating system. Legacy BIOS Mode—Configures the system to boot to a traditional operating system in Legacy BIOS compatibility mode.
Should UEFI boot mode be enabled?
On some devices, you must first reboot once after enabling UEFI and return to the settings menu in order to enable Secure Boot. It is recommended, but not required, to enable the TPM and virtualization support options as well, in order to enable other security features used by Windows.
Should I use UEFI or legacy?
In general, install Windows using the newer UEFI mode, as it includes more security features than the legacy BIOS mode. If you’re booting from a network that only supports BIOS, you’ll need to boot to legacy BIOS mode. After Windows is installed, the device boots automatically using the same mode it was installed with.
What is the use of UEFI boot mode?
UEFI provides faster boot time. UEFI has discrete driver support, while BIOS has drive support stored in its ROM, so updating BIOS firmware is a bit difficult. UEFI offers security like “Secure Boot”, which prevents the computer from booting from unauthorized/unsigned applications.
What does UEFI boot mean?
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a specification for a software program that connects a computer’s firmware to its operating system (OS). UEFI is expected to eventually replace basic input/output system (BIOS) but is compatible with it.
