    Gosh... Turn on Secure Boot?


    I installed Win 10 64 bit (Home, retail version) without enabling "secure boot" in the BIOS. Of course, Win 10 reports that secure boot is off.

    Is there a way to enable "secure boot" or should I reinstall Win 10?

    You can change it in bios settings.

    I've read somewhere that secure boot has to be enabled at the time of Windows installation. So I'm not sure if I can enable it in Bios settings after Win 10 was installed...

    You should be able to enable Secure Boot without any problems. I've turned it on and off in my bios a few times.

    100% correct..
    I have secureboot disabled - as it is not required by OS - it is a pre-boot security feature..

    Hello ChriskK,

    Actually, it's recommended to disable secure boot before installing Windows, and enable secure boot afterwards if you like.
