Your board is a UEFI now, all boards made in the last 10 years are likely to be UEFI

What it might mean is it wants you on UEFI boot method instead of legacy.
Do you know if you use MBR or GPT boot drives now?

UEFI = Unified Extensible Firmware Interface.
it is the bios, if you run it in legacy mode it emulates the old bios, but it is actually UEFI.

UEFI was created by Intel and motherboard makers to fix the limitations of the old bios
If your bios knows what a mouse is, its UEFI

Are you on win 10?

this shows the steps to convert MBR to GPT and then you need to swap the BIOS to UEFI boot method or windows won't boot

can you right click start
choose disk management
open the next window so it shows all the details in upper and lower areas
take a screenshot and upload to an image sharing website, and show link here.
