enable Legacy risk

Postby hime3 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 1:56 pm

Been using all Terabyte software for more than 10 years.
Purchased new Win10 laptop that I intend to use BBM to partition.
Always used NTFS, never UEFI.
MSFT article describing disabling UEFI warns of risk to re-enable UEFI after disabling it.
Is this warning valid for simple disable/enable selection so BBM can partition the HDD?
Would prefer to prepare partitions using Legacy than wait for UEFI compatible BBM.
Thanks

hime3,

You can partition your current disks using PartWork from your IFL boot disk. IFL can boot in UEFI mode.

NTFS is a file system and UEFI is the new, modern "BIOS".
