Default USB Legacy Mode: On or Off? - 02-20-2009, 07:52 PM

Hello, all.
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).

So it sounds like this is something I can go back and do whenever and isn't really important one way or the other until after the install. Alright, thanks for the clarification!
