  1. I read with interest Jim Dyer’s ‘My Story – My Ubuntu Install Disaster’ in this issue of Full Circle Magazine. No Jim, it’s not your fault. You’re also right to be confused. Secure Boot can be a real headache for people trying to install anything other than the original OS. And it’s getting worse:

    Jim it is likely that you probably could have installed Ubuntu on the system by disabling UEFI Secure Boot in the UEFI BIOS, but disabling secure boot is not always simple, sometimes a couple of things need to be disabled in BIOS for secure boot to be disabled.

    The last desktop system I bought came with UEFI/Secure Boot features, but because I bought the motherboard, CPU, and all the parts separate, and I installed Ubuntu before Windows ever touched the system (I eventually bought Windows 8.1 and upgraded to 10, but it sits dormant on a second hard drive) it was a simpler process.

    For the do-it-yourselfers there’s a great site PCPartPicker that lets you pick compatible parts to build your own system. It sources from a few places and is available for several countries.
