    Need Help With Windows 8


    I am using Windows 8 pro, for some reason i cannot use the "change pc settings". I have tried nearly everything, for some reason when i checked my BIOS mode is in legacy. Im not sure if this is normal but i would like to change it to UEFI since i want to use Ubuntu, im using an all in one pc and would really like to know if i can!

    The BIOS mode (CSM or UEFI) has nothing to do with "Change PC Settings". I have several questions for you

    - Have you tried (or did) to remove any components of this Windows Installation?
    - Does your Windows 8 Pro installed on hard drive which is in ACHI mode?
    - Are you sure you're logging to the right menu (legacy BIOS instead of UEFI (for example hitting F2 instaed of "del" button)
    - Is the harddrive in GPT or MBR mode?

    Have you tried this method:

    - Open the administrative Command Prompt (cmd, right click Run as Administrator) and paste the following command there and hit Enter key:
    Code:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\ImmersiveControlPanel\AppxManifest.xml
    Can you post some additional information of when this issue started?
