    Secure Boot To be Or Not


    I'm looking for opinions only. Somebody (which I trust), gave me some files that help me with a project. In the remarks of said piece, it said that I should boot from a USB stick of mine after I loaded the files on to. I did, ran the stick and the computer stop dead in it tracks. I through about it, and found a key to the problem was that my secure boot was enable. Now this computer that I"m doing on this on is a Z220 Workstation (about 7 years old), and from HP. So after I disabled secure boot and ran the stick again, my project worked Secure Boot To be Or Not :). I was happy, and then the mind started to think about what I had done. I did some research on "secure boot", and it's sort of a layer of protection for the computer. From other posters, they have disable there's. So my question is should I have my PC's secure boot "enable" or "disable"?

    :)

    So Linux is switching to secure boot also? Or they have to because of UEFI?

    • Linux

    • Oh and OSX
    Here is a statement from a Kernal Developer at Red Hat:

    I'm not sure this exploits the legacy BIOS but rather it exploits the legacy boot method on MBR drives, injecting a signed key before the OS boots, which you are correct in that it has nothing to do with Windows 8. And the simplest fix would just be to require boot drives use GPT when Secure Boot is enabled in UEFI.
