she never gave me a good answer and  tried to ask again but the topic was closed



why does sandboxie have to be tied to secure boot

secure boot is a bios setting

is sandboxie now tied in with the bios

and what is the mechanism behind it




If you have UEFI and Secure Boot enabled then it wont boot to any DVD unless its signed by MS. Try getting into the BIOS (F2 for Gigabyte if I remember) and turn off UEFI.



also if you have windows 10 on your computer and if you want to install windows 7 secure boot will prevent it

unless you make changes in the bios
