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.

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.

Tecra A11 can't see all of 3TB drive


Support for Disk Drives Beyond 2.2 TeraBytes (TB) and 4K Advanced Format Sectors

Most legacy systems built before 2011 have a traditional PC BIOS. This type of BIOS uses a Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR Partitions can define a disk drive capacity up to 2.2TB. Windows operating systems that boot from an MBR are therefore limited to 2.2TB per MBR. A 3TB disk drive in a legacy BIOS and Window system will need a DiscWizard device driver to access the full capacity of a 3TB disk drive. Two partitions will be necessary because of the MBR limitation. The device driver mounts the capacity above 2.2TB with another MBR which looks to the system as a second virtual "physical" device.
GUID Partition Tables (GPT) can define drives larger than 2.2TB. You can use GPT today on any Windows 10/ 8.1/8/7 and Vista system as a non-booting data drive. Windows can only boot a GPT partition on a new type of BIOS called UEFI.
UEFI BIOS desktop systems are new since 2011. Windows 10/8/8.1/7 64-bit and Vista 64-bit operating systems support booting from UEFI and GPT without the need of a non-Microsoft device driver. This is the Windows native solution for booting a 3TB drive to a single partition.
Quick facts about Windows and 3TB drives:

  • Windows 10/8/8.1/7 and Vista support GPT 3TB single partitions
  • Windows 10/8/8.1/7 and Vista can only boot GPT on systems with UEFI BIOS
  • Windows 10/8/8.1/7 and Vista can mount a GPT non-booting data drive
  • Intel RST device drivers before v10.1 do not support 3TB disk drives
  • Windows systems with Legacy BIOS and MBR boot drives are limited to 2.2TB partitions
  • Windows XP does not support GPT
  • Windows XP sees a 3TB drive as 800GB on boot or data drives
  • DiscWizard software can install a device driver which opens the full capacity of a 3TB. You can use it to create a second partition for the capacity above 2.2TB
