    In order to install Windows BIOS / MBR > turn off secure boot, change UEFI to BIOS (if available) > clean install windows

    If you want to continue booting UEFI and change the drive from GPT to MBR that can be performed by cleaning the drive.

    Correct - the first item to change in BIOS is to disable secure boot which is currently enabled.
