Well, it won't actually boot both ways unless you've installed
bootloaders for both paths - which we don't do for desktop/server use
cases, only cloud-style use cases.

(Also, on systems with legacy CSM, enabling the legacy boot path doesn't
typically turn off the non-legacy path - it just adds the legacy options
as additional boot targets (either after or before the non-legacy ones).)

Be well,
