Solved!

is secure boot required for windows 10 installation?

HP Recommended
Z240 sff
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hardware is HP Z240 sff.  Under Windows 7 64bit operating system, it  runs fine using  Legacy boot configuration. I would like  to replace Win 7 with Windows 10 64bit.  Instructions for switching to Windows 10  say to use Secure Boot, not Legacy Boot.  If boot configuration is set to Secure Boot, Windows 7 give error "Selected boot image does not authenticate" .   Is  Secure Boot required by Windows 10 or is it an option? 

 

Thank you.

Hi:

 

It is an option.

 

I have all of my PC's with secure boot settings running W10 in legacy mode, and I have ancient HP business notebooks such as an nc6400 running W10 just fine with those old BIOSs.

Thank you.  I'll ignore the instructions and move on to the next step in Windows 10 installation.
