HP PCs - Secure Boot (Windows)

Enable Secure Boot to block malware attacks, virus infections, and the use of nontrusted hardware or bootable CDs or DVDs that can harm the computer. You can also disable Secure Boot to use trusted but unrecognized hardware (such as older video cards) or to boot from unrecognized recovery media.

All HP computers manufactured with Windows 11 and 10 come with Secure Boot enabled by default.


If you run the Windows 11 operating system without Secure Boot, it might cause instability and prevent Windows from making updates to your computer.
