Default AE - legacy boot event error

Hi everyone. Today I built my pc and I keep getting that error (AE aka legacy boot event). I read on the internet that most of the times it has to do with ram so I went to the manufacters website and saw that my ram was on their qualified list. Even removed each stick at a time but nothing changed. After that, I changed my graphic card slot, but didn't solve anything. Some people said it has to do with the boot priorities. I removed each ssd at a time and then the cdrom. I also tried to boot with each one individually, but it didn't work either. I removed everything sata related and didnt work. What do you guys think? Should I flash the bios ?

thank you very much,

You might want to at least list your system specs and etc for anyone to be able to troubleshoot.

Hi guyz,

I've got a similar issue. Here's my hardware

- EVGA Z87 Stinger
- 8 GB (2x4gb) Kingston HyperX
- i7 4770 3,4GHz
- Visiontek 7870 Eyefinity 6 2GB DDR5
- Maxtor Caviar Blue

On the MB I get the AE code (Legacy boot event) WHEN the Visiontek 7870 PCIe 3.0 x16 card is connected in the PCIe slot. I cannot boot, monitor remains black.

Although, when I remove the graph card and use the integrated instead, I can boot, browse the BIOS and even boot on a USB Drive without any problem.

I put back and removed the graphic card at least 6 times, each time checking it's properly seated, powered and all. I still get the same AE result.
