Windows 8 won't boot in Legacy mode. Help please!


I am trying to boot Windows 8 in Legacy boot mode, but when i select the Windows Boot Device in the BIOS Boot Manager, it displays a message saying the following:

"Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v15.0.11
Copyright (C) 2000-2011 Broadcom Corporation
Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
All rights reserved.
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable.
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press enter".

I need Windows 8 to boot in Legacy so i can dual boot with other operating systems.

Checked Secure boot and it is switched off, not sure what else to do. The hard drive format is GPT.

Any suggestions?

Thanks! :)
