it asks to run in legacy mode but when you do it tells you it will only run in UEFI.

Did you put the disk in the drive, then restart your computer?

I'm curious why you bought restore disks rather than just using in the built-in restore feature? Did you change out the hard drive?

You might have a bad hard drive.

HD was bad now it runs the system disk and asks for #1 restore disk then asks for #2 but stops loading exactly same spot on #2 disk every time. Error code=ox17c data error(cyclic redundancy check). Does not matter what HD I try same thing even tryed pre formatting in GPT . Could the bios have a problem Linux Mint loads and runs fine.

From that error it sounds to me like disk2 itself is at fault or, less likely, the disk drive.

You could try cleaning disk2 with a little washing up liquid and warm water. Use your thumb to move back and forth from center to outside over the whole of the underside then use the same motion to remove the water with kitchen towel. Dry the label side too and make sure the disk perfectly dry before use. Repeat disk1 and 2 again. You might have to get disk2 replaced, although sometimes making a copy at low speed (finalized) can produce a working disk from one with a slight fault.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
