Inspiron 5567 DELETE/RESET/START FRESH

Hello everyone. I would like to know if there is a way to reset or delete everything and start a fresh new one? I mean reset and delete the BIOS, Bootloader, as in everything and install and start a fresh new one. Because I tried to install Bliss OS as dual boot and it messed up my whole system, can't use grub and just directly going to Windows, then deleted my Restore Points, also it won't make me do a Startup Repair, using bootrec denies my acces to bootrec /fixboot and so on. Like it messed up everything. I know I am responsible for that so I am looking for a way to just delete everything and start a new and fresh one. Please somebody help me with this. Thank you and have a good day ahead!

Hi. Thank you for responding. I looked into the link you provided and got my eye on "Reinstall Windows 10 to the Dell factory image using the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)". But, just to be sure. Do you think if I use that feature, it will reset the EFI/ESP Paritition and all of the partitions to default as well as the BIOS Settings/Setup and everything to default?

There is an option to reset the BIOS to defaults inside the setup (F2 at powerup) screens.

The recovery media will take care of the rest.

I tried that. But any defaults (BIOS, Custom User, Factory) does not really set the settings to default. It's just the same.

Factory will reset the firmware to factory default.  Should be UEFI on, Secure boot ON.

If I do that, will it go back to Legacy Mode? Because it is in Legacy when I first bought my Ins 5567.
