    So if i use it to burn the iso on USB with file system FAT32 and not DVD and then boot from it i won't see the option to install with UEFI?
    NO you will not UEFI mode.

    To install in UEFI mode, you would need to send the Notebook to HP for the Legacy BIOS chip to be removed, & replaced with a UEFI firmware chip. which would cost you more than buying a new Notebook.
