Could you be more specific on Make, Model and OS please, there are quite a few matches to 2000.

Hi

 

The BIOS version you mention is W7 only.

 

I am surprised that you installed W10 in Legacy mode.

 

For UEFI Secure Boot mode I would expect the Hard Disk to be of the GPT type and not MBR.

 

So that is where I would start, with a new Hard Disk Layout.

If in doubt please ask.

Do I need to reinstall windows 10 from a bootable USB drive before I can change from Legacy to UEFI

Hi

Is worth a try first.  AOMEI seems to be the way.

 

Otherwise you do need to start from the beginning.
