    I've recently switched to legacy from UEFI in the boot menu B/C im trying to get my pc to boot from a thumb drive, the only reason I switched is B/C when I tried to boot from a thumb drive it told me that it was blocked by my current security settings now when I try to turn it on and press and hold f12 to get to my boot menu i cant get in and it gives me a beep code (that dosent convert to anything oh boy i tried) so after that happend i tried to boot back into bios with my f2 key and that beeps at me to. im so lost, my pc turns on "fine" i say it like that b/c it seems slower to turn on now it takes the good side of a minute to turn on now or just to give me a screen. heres my system specifications

    Try holding down the Fn key just before you press F2.

    You're not able to go into the BIOS setup screen and switch from Legacy back to UEFI?

    Hopefully, you won't be forced to reinstall Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

    One way to force it to go to the Bios is to unhook the hard drive.
