Answered by James Kissner

To fix the issue of no Secure Boot on your system, you can follow the steps below:

1. Open the Settings menu: In Windows 10, you can open the Settings menu by clicking on the Start button and selecting the gear icon. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Win + I.

2. Navigate to System > Recovery: Within the Settings menu, click on the “System” option. Then, select “Recovery” from the left-hand sidebar.

3. Click Restart now next to Advanced startup: In the Recovery settings, you will find an option called “Advanced startup.” Click on the “Restart now” button next to it.

4. Enter Advanced startup mode: After restarting, your computer will boot into the Advanced startup mode. Here, choose the “Troubleshoot” option.

5. Access Advanced options: Under the Troubleshoot menu, select “Advanced options.”

6. Choose UEFI Firmware Settings: Within the Advanced options, you will find the “UEFI Firmware Settings” option. Click on it and then click on the “Restart” button.

7. Enter BIOS Setup: After restarting, your computer will boot into the BIOS Setup (also known as UEFI settings). The method to access the BIOS may vary depending on your computer’s manufacturer. Typically, you need to press a specific key (such as F2, F10, or Del) during the startup process. Look for a message on your screen that indicates which key to press to enter the BIOS.

8. Switch to Secure Boot: Once you are in the BIOS Setup, navigate to the “Security” or “Boot” tab (the exact name may vary). Look for an option related to Secure Boot and enable it. If Secure Boot is already enabled, you can try disabling it and then enabling it again. Save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup.

Please note that the exact steps and options in the BIOS Setup may differ depending on your computer’s manufacturer and model. If you are unsure about any settings or options, it’s recommended to consult your computer’s documentation or contact the manufacturer’s support for assistance.

It’s worth mentioning that Secure Boot is a security feature designed to protect your system from unauthorized operating systems or malware. Enabling Secure Boot ensures that your computer only boots from trusted sources, providing an additional layer of security. However, it may also restrict the installation of certain operating systems or drivers that are not digitally signed. Therefore, if you encounter issues after enabling Secure Boot, you may need to adjust the settings or seek further assistance from the manufacturer.
