Secure Boot is grayed out in BIOS

Post by jmt356 »

I am trying to enable Secure Boot on my laptop in BIOS. However, it is grayed out.

Is it because I have a BIOS password enabled on my laptop?
Regards,

What model of laptop?
What version of BIOS/UEFI?
What operating system are you trying to boot?

I found the answer to this.

In BIOS, Legacy Support, which was the option just above Secure Boot, was enabled. When I changed it to Disabled, the Secure Boot field was no longer grayed out and gave me the option to change it. I was then able to select Enabled.
