Re: Mixed BIOS types?

ideally - you shouldn't do that - as it can cause some Boot Issues.

which version of Windows ? the later version(s) are already in UEFI mode,

You might try buying an external DVD drive and hook it up to a usb port on the laptop if it can boot to usb.
that is exactly what I'd be doing in this scenario:
- and it's exactly why I've also got an ext DvD drive available to use.

On Amazon.com in th...
