Hi,
The BIOS interface on both pics are for different bioses. So there is nothing wrong in the displayed interface..
You have a legacy type interace in both pics. There are many which even supports advanced gui and mouse integration!

Secure boot is available only with UEFI not ordinary BIOS.
Which means, you dont have such an option in your current bios.
May I know why you want it to be turned off? Are you installing windows 8.x?

Check if there is an option named similar to 'boot option' or 'boot settings' which has options like UEFI , legacy.
