yes. I have 4 partitions on my boot drive, all created by windows, System Info tells me Bios mode is UEFI

How do you clear the secure boot keys?


edit: looking in my motherboard manual, there seems to be a secureboot mode setting that can be set to [custom], which will then enable a key management sub-menu. I am not seeing any info on that sub-menu though.

Ok, entered UEFI, set secureboot mode to custom, accessed the key management menu, and set every option to [load default], or whatever exactly it said, and could then enable secureboot.

after restarting and getting a "bad configuration" error message from windows, and restarting again, I was able to see that system information now tells me that secureboot is on.

I shut down, and started back up cold, just to make sure I hadn't broken my operating system doing this. It appears that so far I haven't.


Should I leave it like this, or is there some configuring I should do? (and if so could you help me out with said configuring)

It appears that you have now successfully enabled secure boot if you are not getting anymore errors at boot. :)

no more errors

Hopefully factory defaults are good enough. I am pretty far out of my depth with this stuff, and don't know where to begin furnishing my own values to replace those.

Thank you for assisting me

question- does secureboot increase the time it takes for a PC to wake from sleep?

I generally put mine to sleep whenever I am not using it, and it seems like it generally takes anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds to wake up now. It used to be the case that waking it from sleep frequently took next to no time (like 1 or 2 seconds).

Hello Yu Gnomi,

It shouldn't make any noticable difference it boot times.

Double check to make sure that you have "Fast Boot" enabled in your motherboard's UEFI firmware settings, and have fast startup turned on in Windows to see if that may help. :)

My motherboard has a utility which tells me that fast boot is enabled and I also have Intel rapid start enabled.

As for windows, this is the page with my power options - I don't know how to enable windows fast startup, or check to see if it is already enabled.

Clicking on the link in my post above will help show you how to check Fast Startup. It requires that you have hibernate enabeled though.

regarding the extra time it takes my PC to wake from sleep I mentioned a few posts back- I have discovered that it starts up just as quick as before if I do not have my Windows phone connected to the USB on the front. So secure boot was never the issue, I have just been leaving my phone connected to my PC a lot recently.

Okay...
I have successfully reinstalled a fresh, nice and new Win 8.1 on laptop. All looks good. Strong password. I encrypted (using Bitlocker) my USB in which I used to reinstall. Now, I want to use the Bitlocker on my C drive. But it looks as if you have to be the Admin, in which I am (I created two accounts, one local, one Admin, no Microsoft Account). When opening the TPM it said something like the platform could not be loaded, etc. I returned to UEFI (F12) and checked it out. This is what I see, and I'm a little confused at the 'Custom' or 'Standard' settings.

Under BOOT option:
>Legacy Boot
>UEFI Boot:

Secure Boot <Enabled>
Load Legacy Option Rom <Disabled>
Boot List Option <UEFI>
Secure Boot Mode <Standard> ------ ALSO HAS THE OPTION OF CUSTOM.
>>>>> IF, I choose CUSTOM, then I have the option to: RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULTS or DELETE ALL SECURITY BOOT KEYS

and then...
Add Boot Option (If I click on this, "Input Option Name?" pops up.
Delete Boot Option (Greyed Out)
View Boot Option Properties (Greyed Out)

I don't recall seeing the Custom/Standard before.....All I recall is Enabled/Disabled. Does this mean that someone else has already configured a 'Custom' boot option? Should I select 'Custom' and 'Restore Factory Defaults', or 'Add Boot Option'?
A bit confused on this part.....and what it has to do with the TPM module ....
Thanks.

Hello Lisa,

You would want to temporarily disable Secure Boot until you have finished with encrypting the drive with BitLocker.

Since you only have the "Standard" and "Custom" options for Secure Boot in your UEFI settings, selecting to use "Custom" and "Delete all security boot keys" should disable it for you.

Okay, much thanks.
I went in and actually did that 'before' encrypting and then continued to encrypt. So I actually encrypted while it was on, but all security boot keys were disabled.....is this going to cause security issues nowo ? Do I need to go back, disable and delete, and re-encrypt?

No, that's fine. BitLocker would have given you an error shortly after starting if it couldn't encrypt the drive because of that. :)

Hello. I got my HP Omni 10 back from HP because of Touch Screen issues. Looks like they re-did Windows and Secure Boot is disabled. "C" is not encrypted either.

If I generate new keys & turn on SecureBoot in BIOS, will it stop Windows from booting due to any reason? I ask because I do not have the HP recovery media and having HP restore it is a pain.

Also, do I encrypt C first or enable Secure Boot first, or does enabling Secure Boot automatically start the encryption process?

Hello,

I changed my system from Legacy/MBR to UEFI/GPT. Do i need to enable Secure Boot? Everything runs normally, i don't really understand what Secure Boot is or if it needs to be enabled for some reason.
