Can you boot into the BIOS? I'm not sure what the button would be for your particular machine. What is the manufatuerer and model of your computer?

 

If you know how to boot into the BIOS, check the boot tab and see if UEFI, NOT legacy, is selected.

Hello,

 

I haven't heard from you in a while and your situation didn't seem like it was resolved. Do you still need help? An update is always appreciated. 

 

Thanks.  :wave:
