Activities

Intel Tunnel Mountain System

The intel Tunnel Mountain UEFI secure boot test box is fairly easy to get to the boot menu (it's also easy if you don't follow this, because it will drop into a UEFI shell unlike almost any other secure boot system on the market).

To get the UEFI menu, power the system on and press ESC after the TianoCore logo appears on the screen.  Once in the Boot menu, select 'Device Manager' and then 'Secure Boot Configuration'.

UEFI

This page describes how to get systems into and out of UEFI setup mode for the purposes either of installing a bootloader hash, or for taking control of all of the keys.  For more details of how UEFI secure boot works and for tools for creating and manipulating keys, see
