Secure Boot Violoation error every boot, pressing enter continues to boot normally

2019-12-12, 13:58 PM

I have a P310 that for some time now has been presenting a Secure Boot Violation error message every time the computer turns on or restarts.  The error has an OK button which is selected, so pressing Enter clears the message and the computer then boots normally.  How can I figure out what's causing this?

Which operating system are you using?

Usually, a secure boot violation error occurs whenever you attempt to boot a bootable partition that doesn't support this feature (i.e., Windows 7).

If you're using Windows 7, I'd suggest going into BIOS F1 setup, select the "Security" menu, browse to the "Secure Boot" menu, and turn this feature off from within BIOS.

Let me take a quick look at this in the lab. Do you know which version of Win10 Enterprise you're using?

Currently running an insider build, v2004.  This has been going on for some time though, since at least v1903.  I have tried finding a solution a few times, but never got very far.  It's finally getting annoying enough that I decided to ask about it, as I'm working remotely more often and if my desktop restarts for any reason I have to get someone on site to interact with it before it will boot and allow me to reconnect to it.

Unfortunately, I don't have an insider build, v2004.  However, I do have Windows 10 1909 in which I was successfully able to install on my P310 system in UEFI mode including "Secure Boot" enabled without any issues. 

 

Here's a little more details on my setup: 

 

P310

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1225v5

Mem: 4* 4GB 

GFX: Nvidia Quadro K420

Storage: 1TB SATA SSD

BIOS: FWKTA6A (latest from the Lenovo Support Site) Download Link

 

BIOS settings:

F1 setup menu -> "Save and Exit" menu tab -> Set "OS Optimized Defaults" to "Enabled".  This turns on "Secure Boot". 

 

 

I installed the Win10 1909 operating system + all device drivers from the SCCM driver pack here.  This gives me a clean device manager and no "Secure Boot Violation errors during system boot.  

 

 

Here are some screenshots of my system set up: 

 

 

Is the insider build v2004 a beta build of Win10? I don't an official build of v2004 as being released from Microsoft yet until the year 2020.  Do you have an official build of Win10 you could try? 

 

 

Can you please provide us with some of you hardware configuration similar to what I did above to get a better understanding of your hardware setup as well as what drivers and BIOS you're currently using?
