Oh, HP changed the BIOS user interface. I can't find anything on the new look either.
I am surprised there are no similarities to the older BIOS interface.
HP's BIOS has limited settings and tweaking options. You should be able to translate older BIOS menus and settings to the new BIOS user interface.

The new interface has quite complicated settings for the TPM device, which I know nothing at all about and had never even heard of. There may be other differences too.
Let me explain why this is such an issue for me. When I got my machine I attempted to install Kubuntu Linux -- and succeeded. It was not difficult and I got it working perfectly. But in the process, I trashed Windows. So I started fiddling with BIOS settings, and I don't remember just what I did. I then decided to start all over from the barest machine I could.
Since I have two hard drives, I reformatted them both completely as NPT, giving me totally empty partition tables. I then proceeded to install Windows 10, successfully, on Drive 1, where Windows was originally. As far as I can tell, Windows now works perfectly. But my attempts to install Kubuntu now fail, even on a bare machine no Windows. I suspect the problem is some kind of BIOS misconfiguration, so understanding the BIOS settings is imprtant.

Maybe this HP Support video can help you with the BIOS:
Dual booting Windows and Linux can be a problem if BIOS Secure Boot is enabled. You can try disabling BIOS Secure Boot or use a Linux distro that supports Secure boot. Google TPM to learn more about this topic. W10 does not require TPM or Secure boot to work correctly.
