By default, Windows 8.1/ 10 WHQL Support is disabled so it will install as Legacy. I suggest you to follow my recommendations to install as UEFI.

What does that mean? And where is my hdd? Everything is plugged in

Edit: After reading lehacy and UEFI people say there is no difference, do you think I have to reinstall?

As your image shows, your memory is running at 2400 and it should be at 3000MHz. You didn't follow my instructions. Pres XMP to run at 3000.
On a UEFI it doesn't show the boot drive as on Legacy. It shows the boot loaders available. Press F11 during POST and select Windows Boot Manager on Sandisk.
Please, follow my instructions step by step.

I'm really sorry if Im stressing you out but XMP says it's not available. I'll follow them now step by step, I thought I could skip ahead by not having to reinstall but I will.

You do want me reinstall again right? Since I installed it before I enabled W8/10 support.

Okay, I think I won't reinstall anymore because it causes a huge hassle with everything overall (redownloading programs, etc). It's working now and I am very happy with the result. So far no errors and everything seems under control. It might be a legacy OS format but it's alright as I am having no issues.

I want to thank you both for your time and effort. Without you guys this wouldn't have been possible.

Hi,
As you can see legacy works too uefi is not mandatory

I would go into boot option in bios and disable fast or quick startup,
Also since you have a ssd disable hibernation too,
Right click the start button and click on Command prompt as administrator
Type or paste this into the cmd line and hit the enter key
powercfg -h off

Then type in exit and the enter key to exit cmd.

Hate to jump in late but.... There`s no reason to reinstall, you just have to get your bios back to how it was.
