Your notebook supports UEFI then.
You should be able to boot from a EFI file.
For example: If you make a bootable USB flash drive with Rufus, you have the option to make the USB flash drive UEFI bootable.

So if you disable Legacy Mode, you should be able to boot from one of the EFI devices listed in your screenshot.
You should be able to do it with Legacy mode enabled, but you indicated you only had a Boot from EFI file listed there.
On my HP notebooks, when I press the F9 key, I get options to boot from the EFI DVD drive and the EFI USB diskette on key.
Then I have the same legacy boot options as you do.

Few days back i tried to convert my disk from mbr to gpt by aomei partition assistant pro , it was converted successfully to gpt but failed to start up showing error message "Boot device not found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk. Hard disk (3fo) F2 syst" when i enable secured boot .Then i disable secure boot and enable back legacy boot but my machine failed to start here also with error" No bootable device insert boot disk and press any key" Before conversation my machine was booting from legacy mode.I had to stall new os.I found out that my machine has legacy boot mode as default. Need your help
