    Do you get  an error message if you try to boot from the hard drive only with no other drives plugged in? What was the factory-installed operating system?

    What was the factory-installed operating system when you got the machine?

    Hi, have you solved the security boot fail problem?

    Think he is in Ethiopia (ET) so Spanish may not help.

     

    Has Windows Enterprise which may explain the Windows to Go (usually on a removable drive). What happens if you select that at the F12 boot ?

     

    ps you do not just press F2 or alt-F10 once, you need to hold them down then press the power button - do not release until something happens.

    Hello everyone!!!, I have your solution for "Secure Boot Fail". Go into firmware/bios settings. Usually seen when prompted to hit enter or esc. Hit esc, you will enter the settings menu. There are multiple tabs you will notice. Navigate to the appropriate tab because the option to disable Secure Boot becomes available when you set your supervisor/master password. Hope that helped!!! It did for me. I was installing Windows 8 along side my Windows 10 (dual boot) and ran into this. I created a password and ta da I could then disable secure boot and now my operating system loads beautifully!!! Cheers!!!

    Congrats. Now that you've got it all up and running, and can put this all behind you,  what if you need to get back into the BIOS menu someday but have forgotten the password? 8^)  Jack E/NJ

    just registered to say CREATING A PASSWORD ALLOWS YOU TO DISABLE SECURE BOOT!!! This totally worked, just make an easy password then go to the BOOT tab and disable SECURE BOOT. Piece of ***** option doesn't let me install a clean version of Windows 10 PRO without all Acers garbage bloatware.
