Secure Boot is a feature in the BIOS settings of modern computers that helps prevent unauthorized or malicious software from running during the boot process. It does this by ensuring that only digitally signed software with a trusted certificate is loaded during the boot process.
To enable or disable Secure Boot in the BIOS settings, you can follow these general steps:
- Enter the BIOS settings by pressing the appropriate key during startup. The key may vary depending on your computer's manufacturer and model.
- Locate the "Security" or "Secure Boot" menu in the BIOS settings.
- Look for an option called "Secure Boot" or "Enabled/Disabled". If Secure Boot is currently enabled, you may need to disable it to install and run certain operating systems or software that are not digitally signed.
- Use the arrow keys to select the option you want and press Enter to change it.
- Save your settings and exit the BIOS. Your computer will now either boot with Secure Boot enabled or disabled, depending on the option you selected.
Note that enabling or disabling Secure Boot may affect the compatibility and functionality of some hardware or software. It's recommended that you research the implications of enabling or disabling Secure Boot for your specific computer and operating system before making any changes to the BIOS settings.
