@Manavsahu01 

Such an option would be in the basic settings and if you are not seeing them, your model does not have the option to make that switch.

 

You can not see the Advanced Settings because HP has them locked out.

The Legacy option si gone forever, due to incompatibility with new processors.

 

If you wanted to boot with legacy to use an old software, the best thing to do is :

 

- install windows 10 UEFI, forget Legacy

- install VMware player or VMware Workstation on your Windows 10 environment

- install Windows 7 on a new VMware virtual machine

- install your old software on this Windows 7 virtual machine

- enjoy your old software
