Have you tried tuning off UEFI under boot in the bios, also see if their is an secure boot option turn it off also if there is.

I am getting the error every time I boot and can no longer get to the BIOS settings to disable secure boot.

Hi Chidori143
Windows wont boot in uefi enabled. Disable it in bios and then you should be able to boot.
