Enable Secure Boot from Windows 10

HP Recommended
HP Prodesk 400 G6 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have many HP Prodesk 400 G6 SFF systems running Windows 10 1909 and 20H2. I notice that secure boot is not enabled on them (UEFI is). Many of these systems are at remote sites with no support staff there. Is there a way to enable secure boot from within windows 10 ? I see that there is a capability on many models to instrument the BIOS using a driver and some utilities if it's booting from BIOS.

 

I'd imagine not as this might negate the security of secure boot but hoping someone can come to the rescue here! 🙂

What is the current level of "risk" because Secure Boot is not enabled?

 

Are you anticipating that somebody might boot from some unauthorized media, and have access to the computer?  Or, that the computer might get stolen?

 

Do you run BitLocker on the computer, to fully encrypt the whole disk-drive?
