the T420 Lenovo thinkpad I have I was wondering should I have uefi or legacy boot mode enable or have both enable in the bios. What will Unified Extensible Firmware do?

Below are the difference between UEFI and Legacy: Unified Extensible Firmware Interface(UEFI) is the successor to BIOS. UEFI uses the GUID Partition Table (GPT) whereas BIOS uses the Master Boot Record(MBR) partitioning scheme. GPT and MBR are both formats specifying physical partitioning information on the hard disk.

I have the SSD install as my C drive the samsug v-nand ssd 860 EVO and of couse windows 7 pro 64 bit.

Sounds like you have a handle on it. I'd enable both. Scott.
