The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface or the UEFI searches for a certified operating system. Microsoft Secure Boot is a component of the core operating system of the Windows 8 operating system. Until the emergence of Secured Booting in 2012, BIOS was used for booting. The Secure Boot quality permits specific authentic drivers authenticated by Microsoft. This enables in blocking unwanted malware.
Of course the malware issue in any way does not affect the Linux system. Secured Boot blocks the intrusion of other software like GRUB or LILO in Linux.
The computer experts are divided in their opinion whether they can select a certified Linux distro to work in collaboration with UEFI standards.
Some of the Linux experts have a great curiosity for the UEFI and Secure Boot technologies. James Bottomley, the chairperson of the Linux Foundation’s Technical Advisory Board is a glorious example of this aspect.
Users have the choice to install any Linux distro on their computer that predates the UEFI and Secure Boot standards without any trouble. Repartitioning of the hard drive, overwriting the former version of the Windows, or making a dual boot environment are all part of the same procedure.
