    How to get to secure boot setting in new UEFI interface

    I recently solved my updates problem here, by performing an in-place upgrade of windows. I am now trying to do the same for my neighbour who is experiencing the same problem. His machine is an ASUS A510U.

    On entering UEFI settings I find a completely new interface where there is no mention of Secure Boot, which I need to ensure is disabled. The setting for CSM is disabled, so I can't see if legacy BIOS is available.

    Can anyone advise how to overcome this problem please?

    If C is disabled, pc will be using UEFI. Secure boot is an option in bios somewhere. AFAIK all UEFI bioses have the ability to turn off secure boot.

    Anyway, Windows 10 is "secure boot friendly" so does not need secure boot switched off.

    Legacy 16-bit BIOS support (CSM) is being deprecated in all new UEFI systems and will be entirely removed by 2020. This was announced last year by Intel.

    Why do you even need CSM? Most OS, including modern Linux distros will work just fine if you use their appropriate EFI loaders, even in dual boot configurations.

    Why do you need to get into UEFI settings to do an in-place upgrade? An in-place upgrade is performed from inside Windows and requires no UEFI settings changes at all.

    Thank everyone for your comments and advice. I decided to run the MS iso file and after many hours the job is done. No mention of secure boot in the process.
    My neighbour will be greatly relieved.
    Regards and thanks again.
