Pavilion HPE h8-1214 has UEFI?

HP Recommended

So, I was looking on the Computer information on Windows, and it says it has UEFI. The PC was from 2012 and originaly shipped with Windows 7. Then I booted into the BIOS (or UEFI?) for further investigation. I noticed some UEFI features, like secure boot and the ability to boot UEFI boot devices. But the UI looks nothing like UEFI, it just likes like regular BIOS. My question is that is it UEFI and can I change the UI on it so it looks like UEFI? Thank!

Hi,

 

The HPE-1214 doesn't have a full UEFI BIOS.  You need a version 8 BIOS for that support and it's not available.

What do you mean version 8 is not available?
