    Hi, when installing Windows 10 on a 64-bit UEFI GPT-partitioned computer, is there a way to add Secure Boot keys (if it is even possible to generate them in the first place) for my USB disk/controller so UEFI Secure Boot will recognize my Windows 10 install on USB and not error out with "SECURE BOOT: IMAGE FAILED TO VERIFY"?

    'Secure Boot' is *very* flawed if 'Secure Boot' must be disabled in order to re-install Windows 10.

    In all seriousness, since Windows 10 will be the "last" windows version, perhaps M$ doesn't plan for anyone to re-install Windows anymore and just "Refresh", "Restore", and "Upgrade".

    I'm not sure if I need to make a new thread, thanks.

    I installed W10 by changing the UEFI settings to accept my USB drive and made sure not disable secure boot, however this still seems insecure.

    However, I read retailers will sell W10 on USB, and I wonder if using a retail W10 USB stick would make the whole install chain secure.
