Hi, @Ghale82 

 

It should have worked, but the only other thing you can try if you are willing, is to clean install W10 in EFI mode.

 

What that means is you create a bootable USB installation flash drive using the media creation tool from the link below.

 

Note that you will lose your data by reinstalling W10.

 

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

 

You need to be able to boot the W10 installation flash drive from a bootable EFI boot source (EFI DVD or EFI USB).

 

Boot from the EFI USB flash drive and install W10.

 

If you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, select the 'I don't have a product key' optiion.

 

You don't need to use your W7 product key.

 

W10 should be installed in EFI mode, and then you should be able to enable secure boot.

 

You may have to enable legacy mode if you don't see a bootable EFI USB flash drive to boot from.

You're very welcome.

 

When you have secure boot disabled, do you still have an option to boot from an EFI boot source such as a USB flash drive or DVD in the F9 boot options menu?

 

If you do, you can use the media creation tool to create a bootable USB installer or burn an ISO to a dual layer DVD and just install it from one of those devices.

 

Then W10 should be installed in EFI mode and you should be able to enable the secure boot setting.

 

In my PC's I have the option to boot from legacy or EFI boot sources.

 

If I install W10 in legacy mode, I can't enable secure boot and the BIOS is in Legacy mode.

 

But if I install W10 from an EFI boot source, the system information utility shows the BIOS in EFI mode, with secure boot off.

 

Then I go into the BIOS and enable secure boot.

Hi:

 

If you have the EFI Rufus flash drive in a USB port and you select 'Boot from EFI file,' does the Rufus flash drive show up under that section as a device you can boot from?

 

If so, boot from it and see what happens.

Gotcha.

 

Unfortunately, I don't know what the problem could be.

 

When you had done the MBR2GPT, that alone should have done the trick.

 

I tried that simple fix on a PC in legacy mode but the command run and came back with a 'couldn't find the partition'

 error or words to that effect, so I had to reinstall W10 in EFI mode.
