Windows Millennium Edition (Me) supports installation on Legacy Free (LF) computers. LF computers require different drivers and different boot files to boot properly. Because of this, Windows Me must detect whether a computer is an LF computer by querying the computer's BIOS.

Windows Me Setup includes a command-line switch (setup /nl) that you can use if Setup does not detect LF status correctly.


Legacy Free is actually the PC 99 System Design specification that contains a master list of hardware specifications agreed upon by the computer industry. For additional information about the PC 99 specification, see the following Web site:
