Not sure quite which you mean; the BIOS item actually called "Legacy" is "Legacy USB storage detect" (later BIOS say "USB Storage Function") - either way, set to "Disabled" unless you, on the next boot, need to access a USB stick from the BIOS for flashing, storing <F11><F12> 'storage slot' parameter sets to USB, or booting from USB - it's prone to causing problems (especially 'reboot loops') if left enabled at other times...

The usual SATA question is re "Native Mode"; this actually simply enables or disables interrupt sharing for the SATA controllers - as the last version of Windoze that didn't support IRQ sharing was MilleniumEdition (which is likely a collector's item by now - I think they only ever sold eight or so of 'em!), for any current system, you always want this "Enabled"...

legacy mode ... compatibility mode, in this mode the controller is addressed like it were a legacy ATA controller.
