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.

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.

Gateway sx2110g


Do you have windows 7? If yes then you will have to contact the manufacturer to help you replace the 7 with 8! That is the biggest problem with 7 to 8, and even though you make it you will have troubles I know one guy who tried to do the same when I went to his home we could not recover even the 7, the message was that you have to consult the provider so that they can help you out!

Hi,

This is an snippet from the Gateway Website.

"In order to access the boot options on this portable computer, press the ESC or F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives or to enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer."
