USB Legacy Mode: On or Off? - 02-20-2009, 06:52 PM
While browsing the several different walkthroughs for DellEFI installation of OS X, I've noticed a discrepancy I'd like to ask the community about:
Here it says to deactivate USB wake from sleep and USB legacy mode in bios:
But here it says to only deactivate USB wake from sleep, and enable USB legacy mode (Step 6 under Part A):
Now, I obviously need the sleep function to work right so this is a little confusing. If anyone can offer any corrections or clarifications I'd very much appreciate it!

Once you have installed and are working properly - disabling this will allow sleep to work better, and will give you fewer problems with USB external HDs when waking from sleep (it won't bounce them offline then back online).
