Acer legacy boot seen as efi - rg66 - 03-08-2022

I have an Acer Extensa ex2510 laptop with latest BIOS set to legacy. When I boot ventoy-1.0.70 it thinks its efi and doesn't show F4 > Search and boot Grub4dos. Opening console and running: echo "$grub_platform" gives "efi". My grub4dos disk boots without any issues.

TIA

Use F8 on power-up to get the BIOS Boot selection pop-up menu.
Do you see both legacy and EFI boot options for your USB drive?

Thanks for the reply,

Boot options show legacy only for all entries.
