SO I am taking some basic Comptia hardware courses and am learning about boot processes. Went into my Win10 desktop system and ran admin cmd bcdedit
Under my C: partition I am seeing system32\winload.exe
I was EXPECTING to find .efi here since I am using a BIOS with a GUI ect.

Did the same bcdedit on my win10 laptop and got the expected system32\winload.efi on partition C:

What exactly is going on here? Obviously i am still learning about all this... Can i easily switch my system to UEFI?

Glad to be a part of the community - thank you for any assistance.

After doing a little more research I am thinking that when i flashed my BIOS (when i was setting up this install) I did so incorrectly and did not properly update to uefi. Guess I am going to have to flash again.
