SOURCE: Changed boot type from legacy to UEFI. Nowi cant even access bios and machine stops at acer screen. really need to enter back in bios and change back the boot type to legacy bios. Please need ur help

Changing the boot type will have no effect on whether or not you can still enter the bios.
The easiest way I find is to remove the hdd and RAM. Start up the laptop and it will do odd things. Power it off, replace the RAM with no hdd and go to the bios settings. Once there, reinstall the hdd and go to bios settings, reset back to legacy. Some systems will not support UEFI but if they do, a hdd without a system on a separate partition, will no longer work.

Can legacy bios ever boot gpt efi, say with a linux efi emulation.


Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.

I have a gateway sx2110g need to change bios to legacy i am running windows xp i am trying to install windows 8


STOP!!!
before you update, check what devices need drivers and if you still can get drivers for these devices, like sound card, video card, but also when you have a webcam and wireless keyboard and mouse.
Since Window's 7 you need Microsoft certified drivers and your old XP drivers can't be used anymore.
Feel free to setup windows 8.1, but make sure you have a image for your old configuration, so you always can go back when you can't get enough drivers to let the computer run like you used to.

My new Hp p2-1394 desktop came with Windows 8. I do not like 8, and wish to install Windows 7. I can boot from CD but can not access my hard drive to install Windows 7.


all original windows reserve a recovery drive. you should repartition your hard disk first and delete the recovery drive to be able to install another OS.

Computer wont load shows emachine sign then goes to reboot screen


right go into the bios and look through the options until you find one that says either UEFI or Legacy, make sure they are legacy. If you don't have this option, find out your bios version and then update it try again in the bios and see if this works if not switch to UEFI and then try again

I want to install windows 7 on this computer. How do I get to a legacy BIOS? I have a Gateway SX2110G Serial Number: 25203457292


The spec of your computer should be able to take Win 7 without the hassle of trying to find a "Legacy BIOS" the only way to find one of those is to find an older motherboard of the same spec and use the BIOS chip from there. Or Flash your BIOS with an older image.
