Is this right? (see attachment)

 

Laptop has both BIOS & UEFI or is this just a bit of terminology crossover?

Damn it, picture was of a the diagnostic tools baked into a HP laptop. Title says "UEFI" and the middle of the screen shows "BIOS Version".

UEFI is frequently is still frequently referred to as "BIOS"

 

My fairly old HP laptop has EUFI that can be set to act like conventional (legacy) BIOS - & as the original OS on it was XP & it is a very early implementation of UEFI it has always been set for legacy BIOS operation & is unlikely to be changed.

 

My Gigabyte Z170 motherboard is UEFI but the manual still has a section for BIOS settings, & refers to BIOS updates.

That actually makes a lot of sense. My UEFI can also be set to legacy which would give the option of both technologies. Still looked a bit odd on my screen LOL
