    Probably you should convert ssd or hd to gpt when installing windows 10! Press shift + f10 and type diskpart, list disk, sel disk x (x is the number of the hd and not of the pendrive); clean and convert gpt! Then close

    You can try the following:
    1) Download windows 10 from this site https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10! You must select the x64 option (only that works in uefi mode) and then select download in iso format!
    2) enter in the cmd as admin and enter these commands to program the pendrive to boot: diskpart, list disk, sel disk x (x is the number of pendrive), clean, convert gpt, create partition primary, format fs = fat32 quick and assign! "Give enter in each command"!
    3) Extract the iso x64 and paste the files on the pendrive!
    4) then enter the bios, disable the secureboot by creating a password in the setsupervisorpassword, select mode uefi and select the pendrive first at boot!
    There is no option to change UEFI or legacy and also no option select priority of boot device.

    Can you hit a photo with that bios? First you have to configure the pendrive on another computer using cmd as administrator and typing those commands!
    It looks like it's already UEFI, you need to disable the secureboot! The pendrive with the commands I told you is already in the format recognized by uefi! Try the tip I told you to convert the pendrive into gpt!
    If it is not recognized in the bios, press f12 and select the pendrive!
    Only then, already inside the installation of windows 10 you convert ssd or hd!

    Is the usb hdd converted to gpt format?
    Yes

    It is possible that the hdd usb is not appearing in the boot menu (f12) because it does not contain the windows boot files! When installing windows 10 using the pendrive, make sure windows detects the hdd usb!

    Will you use a USB stick or a USB HDD to install windows 10?
    In either case, convert before to gpt using cmd as administrator, as I told you before and download the iso from windows x64 (because only this version works in uefi mode)
