Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A legacy-free PC is a type of personal computer that lacks a floppy drive, legacy ports, an ISA bus. According to Microsoft, "The basic goal for these requirements is that the operating system, devices, and end users cannot detect the presence of the following: ISA slots or devices; legacy floppy disk controller; and PS/2, serial, parallel, and game ports." A USB adaptor may be used if an older device must be connected to a PC lacking these ports. According to the 2001 edition of Microsoft's PC System Design Guide, a legacy-free PC must be able to boot from a USB device.
