I built my PC about 6 months ago from parts I ordered from Amazon, plus some things I salvaged from my old PC. I attempted to enable secureboot a while ago, but failed because my boot drive was MBR partitioned. I didn't really know much about GPT partitioning, UEFI or any of these other new-fangled concepts. I know a bit more now, but whenever I try to read up on secureboot, I find more and more terms (trusted platform module, platform key, etc.) that are brand new to me.
My boot drive (SSD) and my internal HDD are both GPT partitioned, and Windows is installed in UEFI fashion now. System Info says secureboot is off, last time I attempted this it was listed as unsupported.
So for someone who has enabled secureboot on a PC they built, what steps do I need to do to get secureboot enabled on mine? (i.e. Is it just as simple as entering UEFI settings and enabling it there, or are there more steps)
Also, while searching for info on this topic, I have read a few people post about how secureboot is inconvenient and they have disabled it. Are there any pitfalls I would need to look out for while operating with secureboot enabled- specifically would it prevent me from using non-gpt drives, like my recovery USB (which is FAT32 and probably MBR), or my external HDD (MBR/NTFS and which is normally turned off)?
