Hi All,
Greets,
@mesmerrow :
As said by Seniors, the things are quite strange about your desktop. But I assume that your OS is all well, you are having problems with some BIOS settings & need to change them.
I warn you that BIOS is the most critical part of any PC to deal, advise & repair. As many machines, so many configurations. So, Proceed only if everything is crystal clear.

1. Disable Fast Boot : Can you find & do it ?

2. Disable Secure Boot : I would like to point you to a tutorial. I have successfully helped disabling Secure Boot in the same conditions with this guide :

How to Disable or Enable Secure Boot for ASUS Motherboard

The section for us is : Step-by-Step: Take Backup of Existing Keys and Disable Secure Boot

You may want to enable secure boot again in future! So. it would be better to backup the keys on a Pen Drive & keep it preserved, untouched & safe.
To avoid any problems : copy all the files from the pen drive & quick format the pen drive with default settings.
A 4gb pen drive is more than enough.

So,
Go through the guide, Backup the keys & get the things done.

( To avoid any problems : make sure that the 'Secure Boot' is 'disabled' & 'Platform Key (KY) State' is 'unloaded' for all the 'OS Types'. You can choose all the OS Type one by one in the menu and check the status of the two! )

3. If you are still not able to boot into win 7, we may need to change UEFI, Legacy,CSM, etc. things.

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Sorry for the late reply, i went through Megahertz07 and dsperber's methods and both worked! i am now back on my windows desktop (feels good)

However i noticed that there is a slight delay to many things like loading websites, software and and so on, in fact even booting up my computer from a shutdown takes longer,
What i find really odd is that before the factory reset, when my computer was full of stuff and had never been formatted since i purchased it back in mid 2016 it wasn't this slow,
I want to make it clear however that the delay isn't huge, just long enough to notice the difference.

Open Device manager. Is there any yellow alerts of missing drivers?

My suggestion is to set WU to manual under services and on WU page set to Never Check and un mark Recommended update.
Once a month, manually download and Install the security only updates from Windows 7 SP1 update history .

If you have M$ Office or other M$ software, manually search for updates and install only those for Office etc.

Now that you mention it i checked and found 2 yellow marks i can't get rid of, i tried letting windows search online for updates but it simply states that no updates where found.
(Also it's danish if you are wondering, wish i could change it to English)



Also i have already done the Windows Update stuff, thanks anyway, good catch, might not have done it if i didn't think of it.

It's missing the chipset drivers.
First you must install the hot fix (attached)
