Hi Sir,

 

Please refer below steps to check if you can find boot option mode on your server or not.

1. Press F1 when system booting to enter System Configuration and Boot Management main page.

2. Select Boot Manager 

3. Select Boot Modes

4. You can adjust boot mode from System Boot Mode option

Hi shush1, 

My colleague replied about the steps used to change the system boot mode to Legacy through the UEFI setup page. That means the server firmware does support system to boot from Legacy mode. 

Could you find the boot mode option through UEFI setup utility?

If you can find the option and set the system boot mode to "Legacy mode", could you please elaborate more detail about what devices cannot do a legacy boot or provide any screenshot for the failure screen so that we can understand the issue you encountered?
