Hi

Can you give the Pn / MTM of 10 characters please.

 

SECURE boot is part of the SECURE BOOT / GPT / EFI combination.

 

Therefore you may need to re-format, risking losing all your DATA.

OR do a conversion on the partitions.

Hi

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/gb/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/legion-series/legion-y540-15irh/81sx/81sx0063a/downloads/driver-list/

 

Secure Boot is supported.  You may need to start at the beginning with the Storage Device.

Make the HDD/SSD SecureBoot/   GPT / EFI then install the Operating System.

 

So back up all your data, make a bootable USB and do a clean install.

 

I would not have PXE enabled at all, also disable the Fast Boot initially.

The Boot Mode is UEFI or Legacy.
