Read up a little bit on your BIOS on pg 56 onwards, and perhaps research it a bit on the Foxxconn website.

1) Remove HDD 1:WDC WD500AA, in your screenshot 7.
2) Make the DVD/CD Drive is first boot.

No indication from this link, which is your motherboard:

Theog where does it say in BIOS that EFI is enabled? I am not seeing it.

What I do see is SATA config which should be set to AHCI to try install.

I also see 8gb of RAM which might need to have all but 2gb removed to try install.

I saw the specs saying it is EFI capable, but where in BIOS does it say it is EFI at all? He posted screenshots of all BIOS pages.

In some BIOS's there is no option to disable or enable.
But 32 bit will disable uEFI BIOS.
64 bit but will enable.

Do I need to remove the Hard Drive? I do not feel confident, and don't have any screwdrivers either.
