Does anyone have an idea if dual booting affects Secure Boot? 🤔





@strawberryfieldsforever@koyu.space I think one time secure boot locked me out of my computer after I updated Linux.

I had to disable it to get back in.

@strawberryfieldsforever with a proper bootloader or shouldn't. Even less if you don't chainload but do the OS selection via the EFI menu.

@strawberryfieldsforever yeahno ... uhm.. not directly.

The problem could be, that you need do deactivate secureboot to be able to boot other stuff than your microsoft install..

But i'm not sure about that.. rumors say there are distributions out there supporting secureboot to some extend...

Besides that, it usually _should_ not be a problem.

@strawberryfieldsforever The GRUB bootloader used by most Linux distribuions hasn't given me any problem with UEFI+Secure Boot so far. The only caveat is I had to manually select the EFI file as trusted for booting. IDK if this is the normal, but it looks like it. From GRUB, of course, you can boot most OS's without problem.
