A few months ago I purchased a new Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Small Form Factor desktop computer. It has Windows 7 Professional preinstalled. I am thinking of updating to Windows 10.
My M73 has a regular BIOS. Can it be changed to UEFI, and would there be an advantage in doing so?
Also, I am planning to install an SSD and move the OS to the SSD and use the HDD for extra storage. I think this would be a significant improvement to the system speed and faster boot up. I have done it on older desktops I own.
Thank you in advance to anyone with good advice.

M73 SFF (&Tower) does have a UEFI setting, it is not the default (compatibility mode). I changed it to UEFI to boot a MemTest86 CD to run the latest v6 tests: What's New in MemTest86 for the UEFI platform (Version 5 and later)?
