how to turn on secure boot in BIOS?

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-ay516tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have already Windows 10 installed on my laptop. Now am testing whether windows11 is compatible with my laptop but it says the secure boot is disabled. I checked my bios setting in which Legacy Mode was enabled and Secure Boot was Greyed Out(disabled). So how to turn on secure boot..will it cause any data loss or windows 10 boot problem if I enabled it. Please guide me to solve this issue...

Hi:

 

You can't turn on secure boot unless you disable legacy mode, and you can't disable legacy mode or the notebook won't boot up.

 

You can see this related discussion for the solution...install W10 in EFI mode.
