x230 secure boot

2020-10-21, 20:24 PM

for some reason I cannot get my Lenovo X230 to work with secure boot, any ideas what could be the problem?

 

the BIOS has some issues I cannot overcome to set hybrid boot etc

 

I own: T400 T500 X220 X230 all running Windows 10 Professional

How was windows 10 installed?  You need to have the disk initially formatted in UEFI (not legacy) mode.  I always delete all partitions, create a UEFI installation thumb drive, turn on secure boot and then install

The BIOS will not let be used UEFI unless secure boot is also enabled
