    Sorry.
    All the pictures are upside down.
    It was hard to read them.

    I don't know how to fix it without the UEFI option.
    Someone else here may respond with help.

    Here are your pictures right side up:

    Since it is in legacy mode, maybe the "delete" key will get you into bios instead of F2? Just a shot in the dark!
