There's no need for USB legacy support in notebooks. USB legacy support
means that an USB keyboard and mouse will be used from the BIOS like legacy
devices (PS/2). This is necessary on desktop computers to be able to use an
USB keyboard and mouse with BIOS setup or operating systems that don't
support USB (WindowsNT, Solaris x86, etc). A notebook has a built-in
keyboard which is a legacy device, so there is no need for legacy support.
For sure Your BIOS doesn't have it at all...
