1 Can't access "Legacy" selections in BIOS.
2 My Samsung USB optical drive is not recognized by this computer. It's ok on my other computers.
3 Can't select the optical drive as boot drive.
How can I resolve this?

1-Immediately after powering on are you tapping the F9 key to select boot device?
2-If F9 does not allow selecting USB- follow these directions to Disable Secure Boot.

I am getting it ontime.
I can select system config then Boot Options.
Then I select UEFI CD/DVD (it's on top).
The Legacy selections are not active.
What the heck is UEFI anyway?
So, then I get the screen that I showed you in the previous reply.
If I take this to Best Buy, it will cost me about $100.00
HP makes better printers than computers. Too proprietary.

No it is just that computers have gotten hella more complex in the last 3 or 4 years. UEFI is a new basic system for computers and has replaced BIOS or at least supplemented BIOS and you can't expect to effectively work on any computers now unless you understand it. If you want to get rid of the UEFI boot options tap esc as you power up, get into the congfiguration menu (F10) and disable secure/uefi boot and enable legacy boot.
