@Jagger15 , welcome to the forum.


I would appreciate it if you could provide the product number for the computer.  I can't find any specifications for the model HP 8010.

Scared him off by asking the question, did ya?  🤔🙄


If your asking about an HP 8100,  thank goodness your only considering that dinosaur !!

1) The market is flooded with these circa 2010 units now that their off-lease. 

2) Because the BIOS is 2010, it has Legacy BIOS. It can never be upgraded to the modern UEFIvBIOS.

3) As the RX 570 is UEFI, the answer is sadly for you, a big NO.
