How to enable UEFI (SECURE BOOT) from Legacy boot to install Windows 11

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-af114au
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey I wanted to install Windiws 11 in my HP Notebook - 15-af114au but it turns out I dont that UEFI or Secure boot enabled so I ent into my  BIOS and disabled the Legacy boot and enabled the UEFI boot but after that my OS wont load I get weird errors like there is no OS found.  To solve that I had to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to access my bios and chage my settings back to normal. So I just wanted to ask if there;s something else I have to do before changing from Legacy to UEFI in order to boot properly.

Of course Windows will no longer load -- because you changed the BIOS mode!  You clearly do not know what you are doing if you expected this to work. 

 

Once you made that change, you would then had to reformat your drive to MBR and reinstall Windows using MBR-compatible media. 

 

Lot of work for an OS that has not yet been released and will not be for several months yet.

hi

Unless I'm mistaken, the official user version of windows 11 is not yet complete, functional and available!
You are very likely to regret, to try something unfinished, or unofficial
it's up to you, but wait a bit

A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
