    To enable UEFI mode you will hit F2 upon starting up your dell, Then navigate to Boot > Boot settings > Boot mode Or Secure boot mode. One of those should allow you to enable UEFI (if it isnt already enabled). Then hit save changes and reset. If there isnt any kind of option for UEFI mode or changing the sata ports.
