yes,i have disabled the secure boot. If i didnot do that , there would be a hint displayed under the option, just like "unselected because ...." or sth. But now ,there is nothing.

Sorry, then I don't know. Those two changes (Secure Boot, Virtualization) have always allowed me to select Legacy (or Both) in the boot section
