Can't find UEFI settings in boot screen

HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey all,

I want to install an SSD in my laptop. But when I boot, there's just an "f..." on the screen. Turns out I need to change my UEFI setting, but I cannot find it in my BIOS settings, or basically anywhere else, I'm sure I've almost tried everything. Please help

@Pascalvdb Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to install the SSD.


Please follow the below steps and check.


Tap away at the ESC key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Bios Menu ( f10 ).


Under the System Configuration tab, expand the Boot Options Menu.


You need to set Secure Boot to Disabled and Legacy Devices to Enabled.


When done, press f10 and select to save the changes.


Please refer to the following link.


let me know how that pans out,
And the answer to the above question will help me, help you!
