What is your need for secure boot if you don't mind me asking? The H2 isn't designed to participate in the Windows logo program or even officially support Windows.

Secure Boot must to disabled to develop & debug Windows kernel drivers for H2. Cannot set "bcdedit /debug on" if Secure Boot is enabled.

I could be wrong... But unless Odroid offers a flash update to the bios, I think you will be stuck. I purchased a H2 to replace a mini-itx motherboard that is running IPFire. To my surprise, because there is no disable for the secure boot, you will find that you are limited to what can be installed. When the board was first available for shipping, I thought this is great... dual NIC, passive heatsink, etc. I contacted Ameridroid here in the U.S. and was advised that there is nothing that can be done to get that change made in the bios... My H2 has become a brick setting on a shelf, for now.

Ah you need it disabled, I thought it was already. I could see this being implemented since it's a hindrance to development.

Does anyone know if it is possible to disable Secure Boot on the H2+? @artspace just called and was asking, and we thought we'd ask here for more info. All our H2+ units are either inbound or on their way to our clients, so we don't have any on hand to check at the moment.

@Ameridroid,
There is no "Secure Boot" option in the current AMI BIOS configuration.
We will check the feasibility with the BIOS vendor.

Hi.

We've made a new BIOS that has "Secure Boot" option. I have uploaded it to our dn server, please check it out and let us know the results.

https://dn.odroid.com/ODROID-H2/bios/tr ... reboot.zip

The version information of this new BIOS is,
- Project Version: GLK-SF 1.11 x64
- Build Date and Time: 07/07/2020 11:26:18

To disable the secure boot option, go to the BIOS setup screen and go to Security -> Secure Boot menu. Then you can see the option to toggle that.

Hi Joshua,

I tested that BIOS with Alpine Linux 3.12 and Ubuntu 20.04.
When Secure Boot is enabled only Ubuntu 20.04 boots otherwise both boot.

Note: I haven't tested other Secure Boot options like Key Management.
