Hi all.

I frehly installed Debian Sid in dual boot with Windows 10 on my brand new
Lenovo desktop pc but it won't boot into Debian system I suspect because of the
new Secure Boot policy.  I want to disable it but the problem is that there's
no Secure Boot option anywhere in its Bios.  In fact, in the Security submenu,
there are only the options for administrator and power-on password setting.

What do you suggest me to do?

Are you totally sure it's a Secure Boot issue? What exactly happens at
boot? Does it just boot straight into the Windows installation? Have
you managed to install Debian, or will it just not boot the installer?

If you go into the BIOS/firmware config program, does that show you a
list of boot options including Windows?

I just installed a new ASUS motherboard and the bootup screen proclaims UEFI. I had plugged back in my two harddrives with Debian and Ubuntu installed. No sweat! Nothing different happened. I am clueless, but it works. Ric
