    Belarc reporting secure boot isn't enabled


    Should I be worried or happy regarding this? I know for instance that it can cause problems with dual booting. What is the advantage of having it enabled?

    Hey Nick,

    Here's the official definition below to help.

    Secure Boot is a security standard developed by members of the PC industry to help make sure that your PC boots using only software that is trusted by the PC manufacturer.

    When the PC starts, the firmware checks the signature of each piece of boot software, including firmware drivers (Option ROMs) and the operating system. If the signatures are good, the PC boots, and the firmware gives control to the operating system.

    Secure Boot - Enable or Disable in UEFI

    Secure Boot - Confirm Enabled or Disabled in Windows 8
