    secure boot and TPM

    I believe a recent comment in this thread:
    http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...=1#post1007143
    SB requires UEFI and a TPM.
    is incorrect.
    - I have a Asus Transform w/ 8.1 and the ability to Secure Boot and no sign of a TPM in device manager.

    See 4 paragraphs down on this link.https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...or=-2147217396

    Just wanted to avoid some confusion RG

    And to make amends here is a link to a powershell use for t/s a secureboot problem:

    David,

    Mea Culpa!

    More Succinctly...
    Secure Boot requires a PC that meets the UEFI Specifications Version 2.3.1, Errata C or higher.

    Secure Boot is supported for UEFI Class 2 and Class 3 PCs. For UEFI Class 2 PCs, when Secure Boot is enabled, the compatibility support module (CSM) must be disabled so that the PC can only boot authorized, UEFI-based operating systems.

    Secure Boot does not require a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
    Reference MS Article.

    It's all so confusing!

    Thanks for pointing that out.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    It certainly is! That is one one the reasons I tried to find references to confirm.
