comment Secure Boot State is OFF although it is turned on in UEFI Firmware Settings
Are you sure the default Microsoft keys are installed? I had this issue when I tried to enable Secure Boot on my laptop (which, for some reason, shipped with Secure Boot disabled). (@Ramhound: The OP is trying to enable Secure Boot.)

comment Can harddrives destroy motherboards/bioses?
The issue you're experiencing is caused by corrupted BIOS or UEFI firmware. Recovering from this condition requires reflashing the firmware; I'm not familiar with this process but it seems you'll need to have a floppy disk or optical disc with a BIOS image. (Some boards allow reflashing from a USB flash drive formatted as FAT32, though.)
