    Confused about Secure Boot being Enabled before Win10 clean installs

    I am kind of mixed up and confused and have been given mixed answers on my question here (on different forums).

    I have created a Win10 bootable USB recently with the Media Creation Tool and in the UEFI settings, I enabled Secure Boot. Of course, with Secure Boot being enabled, I cannot boot other OSs like UNIX or Linux or even some third-party repair tools.

    So, in the event that I need to perform a clean install of Win10 again using my USB bootable media, will I have to disable Secure Boot temporarily until the installation process completes?
    Or, will it cause issues if I just leave Secure Boot On and boot Win10 OS from the USB flash drive?

    Windows 10 uefi installs are secure boot compliant, so no need to disable to install or boot from it.
