    Hello s0urce, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Secure Boot is a security feature that prevents “unauthorized” operating systems and software from loading during the startup process. For example, a rootkit virus.

    It's up to you to enable or disable Secure Boot, but if you would like better security, it's recommended to enable.

    Thank you, Brink.

    It should be okey for me to enable it now or it should be done before installing a new OS? I did a clean install of Windows 10 but i don't know if we can still enable it without breaking anything.

    I'd enable it afterwards.

    Hello avismile,

    I'm not sure if this is exactly the same for your GIGABYTE motherboard, but it should get you close.
