aspire xc 895 how to disable UEFI?

hi all
how to disable UEFI?
how to put windows on a different drive? There is no disk drive in the package, it does not see a USB flash drive with BIOS.
Maybe a bios update will help?

    Create your windows USB disk 
    Enable F12 in BIOS then reboot with F12 or Fn F12.

    Note that the USB will have to be bookable as WIN CREATE USB TOOL will do.

    You can't change to Legacy boot mode with most modern computers and you won't need it here. What specifically are you trying to do? Your XC-895 likely has an NVMe SSD mounted in the M.2 slot, not a HDD.

    I never posted a link for the USB TOOL CREATE. But for the future, You can do it on another computer. This will create a bootable USB drive.
    Go into bios and Enable Boot then reboot using F12 or Fn + F12

    I have a flashcard with Win 11 in GPT format, but bios haven`t seen her

  • LarryodieLarryodie Member Posts: 647 Seasoned Specialist
    What is a flashcard ? if's it is an USB then do as I said:  Go into bios and Enable Boot then reboot using F12 or Fn + F12

    Your drive will have to be formatted as so: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/install-windows-from-a-usb-flash-drive?view=windows-11

    If it's something like an SD card, it will not work. Booting isn't allowed from them.
