Hi:

 

If your notebook has a UEFI BIOS, when you press the F9 boot options menu, there should be two lists of boot devices...EFI and Legacy.

 

Something like this...

Hi:

 

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.
