The last one I ordered was hp Compaq elite 8200 sff and it was legacy and didn’t have an option of uefi at all this is all confusing for.

@Jaywill92,

The simple answer is to only purchase a computer that was released to the public after Sept 2012.

The HP 8200 was released early 2011, and these are sold when their "lease agreement" ends to re-sellers.  This has been a virtual plague to this forum.  Cheap at $60, or upgrades (still Legacy BIOS) at $240
