Thread: QosmioX70-B - does Secure Boot work properly?

  1. QosmioX70-B - does Secure Boot work properly?
    On my Toshiba QosmioX70-B Secure Boot is enabled in the UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2). Windows 10 Pro, installed on HD, always boots fine.

    When I booted OpenSuse Live KDE 13.2 from DVD for the first time on this notebook I was asked a question I cannot remember exactly. It must have been something like, if I want to bypass Secure Boot or not. I decided to bypass it.

    Now everytime I boot from the above mentioned live DVD no question is raised and the boot process goes straight through.

    On another computer (Dell desktop) I have never been asked such a question and everytime I want to boot from the live DVD I first have to disable Secure Boot in its UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2).

    What has happend to my Toshiba notebook? I doubt whether Secure Boot is still effective. How can I switch it on once again? Let's remember that the UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2) still shows Secure Boot as enabled. I prefer to explicitely disable it everytime (as on the Dell System) I want to boot from the live DVD instead of having that doubt.

    It is still effective, but it sounds like Linux added its own Secure Boot Key to the BIOS, or replaced the Microsoft key.
