ON shutdown or restart computer wont boot back up,numerous steps will boot and performs flawlessly

HP Recommended
Hp Envy 750-167c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So everytime I shutdown or restart my computer I am required to do a series of things to get it to boot back up past the Hp logo, 1'st is I have to press f2 continuously until the BIOS management menu opens allowing me to apply either an older, current or new image then after I select which image it says The system BIOS is being updated. The update will take a few minutes to complete. 

Do not Shut down or remove external power from your computer during the process ( in red letters)

under that it says writing new bios image block ---/2048 it writes that till it reaches 2048 then once it reaches 2048 it then runs through the blocks again to verify Bios Image. After this finishes it says the system BIOS update is complete then gives me the option to restart system with a timer of x seconds going off for an auto restart once the restart happens it then boots to a red box that pops up saying invalid signature detected. Check secure boot policy in setup then I press enter to hit ok and it goes black screen with white text that says 
">>checking media presence......
>>media present
>>start PXE over IPv4. Press ESC key to abort PXE boot so I press escape then it transitions to a blue screen with a blue box saying 
Boot device not found
Please install an operating system on your hard disk.
Hard Disk - (3F0)
F2 - System Diagnostics 
For more information, please visit" so then I have no options but to press power and power back on and it will boot up with a screen telling me processor type and speed also l1,l2,l3 cache sizes and memory sizes as Channel A, and B info and Bios revision info, at the bottom it says press the esc key for startup menu however only after doing all this do I get to power on and press f10 repeatedly until it open the Hewlett-packard setup utility I select apply defaults and exit and hit yes Im sure and it restarts this time rebooting normally and gets to os and functions fine, I am truly not sure what is causing this.


I can do all these steps listed above to get it to boot and it will perform flawlessly like nothing is wrong with it at all even if not turned off for weeks or months, I should also note this has been the steps I have had to take to get it to boot up after a restart or shutdown, I.e. any windows updates or serious installs that require restarts. Please help going mad.

First thing is to have it shut down as cleanly as possible, AVOID fast start up.

My TICK/CHECK box is empty, and I suggest yours should be as well.


For the BIOS set a simple password, like hp, sort out the boot sequence.


Then it is Secure Boot.  save settings.


Also if the machine wants to boot from somewhere else, make a DVD or USB and give it the chance.


BIOS boot order and SECURE/LEGACY options may need changing.


The error seems to be that no HDD or Operating System is present, which is wrong as it will boot.  The media you may want to make does offer the opportunity to repair/replace what is there already.


If in doubt please ask.
