@CHANCE2B-U Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Firstly, remove the hard drive from the computer. Once the hard drive is removed turn on the computer without the hard drive- While booting as the computer doesn’t detect a hard drive so it’ll automatically rollback to the previous bios. Put the HDD back in and turn it ON. It might give an error about improper shutdown. Just click continue and it should boot to windows.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
