    UEFI to Legacy for graphics card installation


    Okay, my graphics card, Nvidia GT650 is not ready for UEFI installation and I have no way to flash the bios. If I boot using legacy bios, install the card, then can I flash the card BIOS and then return to UEFI booting?

    The card is currently not installed and I have no other system to use to flash the cards bios. TIA!

    Did some research and it appears after you disable UEFI, in order to install the card, you can then reboot and enable UEFI and it will reconfigure the UEFI with the new card.
