Disable secure boot on Probook 640G2 with BIOS 1.02

Probook 640G2

Hi,

 

When I disable secure boot on a Probook 640G2 (and presumably the 650G2) with BIOS 1.02, on restart the system asks me to type in a confirmation code. This is expected. What is unexpected is the system will accept any random code I type. Is this by design?

Probably not by design. The assumption is that turning off secure boot can have a potential security consideration and therefore a user needs to approve of the change. I would encourage you to open a support case so this issue can be tracked and fixed with a BIOS update

I work for HP. However, all opinions and comments are my own.

I have turned off secure boot on quite a few HP PCs and was never asked for any kind of confirmation.

When you put a new motherboard in an HP notebook PC you have to turn off secure boot in order to set up the new motherboard, and I have replaced many HP Motherboards.
