Disable Secure Boot in BIOS

Disable Secure Boot in BIOS

Let us do it in Steps:
  1. Before disabling Secure Boot, consider whether it is necessary. From time to time, your manufacturer may update the list of trusted hardware, drivers, and operating systems for your PC. To check for updates, go to Windows Update, or check your manufacturer's website.

  2. Open the PC BIOS menu. You can often access this menu by pressing a key during the bootup sequence, such as F1, F2, F12, or Esc.

    Or, from Windows, hold the Shift key while selecting Restart. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings.

  3. Find the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to Disabled. This option is usually in either the Security tab, the Boot tab, or the Authentication tab.

  4. Save changes and exit. The PC reboots.

  5. Install the graphics card, hardware, or operating system that’s not compatible with Secure Boot.

    In some cases, you may need to change other settings in the firmware, such as enabling a Compatibility Support Module (CSM) to support legacy BIOS operating systems. To use a CSM, you may also need to reformat the hard drive using the Master Boot Record (MBR) format, and then reinstall Windows. 

  6. If you’re using Windows 8.1, you may see a watermark on the desktop alerting you that Secure Boot is not configured correctly.
