How to enable secure boot

HP Recommended
ENVY x360 Convertible 15m-cp0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I enable "secure boot"? I have tried adding a password, disabling and enabling "TPM", disabling and enabling "Legacy boot" and "secure boot" is not accessible in any case. I have searched this website and found articles for enabling "secure boot" but none of them match this PC's BIOS (BIOS : F.48-11/26/2020).

TPM and Secure Boot are different things.  Enabling either does nothing for the other.

 

You need to know EVERYTHING that your system lacks for Windows 11, not just TPM or what the MS tool tells you.

Here is a link to a third-party tool that will check all the currently known requirements for Windows 11 and tell you what fails on your PC: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/releases

Do NOT try to download this using MS Edge as it flags it as malware -- which it is NOT -- use a different Browser instead.

This is what I have found by trial and error:

"Legacy Support" must be "Disabled"

"Load HP factory default keys"

This activated "Secure boot" where it could be changed and I "Enabled" it for a test and when I enabled "Legacy Support" it disabled "Secure boot.

What you are seeing is how it works.  For Secure Boot, you must have UEFI set, not Legacy.  If you force Legacy, that will disable Secure Boot.
