    Hi everybody, I am replacing my motherboard in a HP computer I upgraded to a gaming computer. That old gigabyte angelica 2 motherboard just won't cut it. I found a newer better gigabyte am3+ motherboard to use, but it has uefi bios. Do i need to use legacy mode or disable uefi bios in-order to use my MBR hdd and Daz Loader? If so how would I do this? Is there any tutorial that is very basic and straightforward? I have never tinkered around with bios before.
    Thanks,
    -Hardstriker2

    Yes, use legacy mode. To do it, read the manual that came with your motherboard or view it online from the manufactures website. Its very straight forward.

    Hardstriker2:
    I was curious which motherboard you were planning to use, as a replacement for the Angelica2.
    Angelica2 is mATX size, and uses the AMD 970 chipset. I could not find any mATX board with the 970 or newer chipset.
