Re: [PLUG] Windows 10/UEFI/SecureBoot

Windows 10 install does not enable nor disable Secure Boot. That's not something an OS can change for you, it requires user interaction, by design.

Talking with someone today, he mentioned that a laptop he had with Win 10 prevented his computer from booting from a flash drive to dual boot.

When I questioned him about it, he said that SecureBoot toggle is disabled when WIn 10 is installed. I personally am not willing to "upgrade" to Win 10 to test this out, but I'd love to have some proof that this guy is wrong.

I know that SecureBoot is notoriously difficult to disable/turn-off, but I've never read anywhere that it is completely and permanently enabled when an OS is installed.

Does MS actually restrict SecureBoot with it's WIn 10 install?
