[REQUEST] Enable Non-Signed UEFI Boot Unlock for HP DV6-4008TX
#1
Model: HP Pavilion DV6-4008TX
Latest BIOS (F.0F) - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp54001-54500/sp54077.exe
Would love to be able to boot non-HP-signed UEFI systems if possible please (ie. GPT-partitioned Windows 8).
Also access to the hidden options and Intel Wireless-N 7260 added to the whitelist would be nice, but not as important.
Many thanks,
Tom

Isnt there a Secure Boot option in the BIOS to disable?

No. The default BIOS is very limited, unfortunately.
To elaborate, it has UEFI boot functionality, but by default only things signed by HP, such as the 'HP Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Support Environment'.
Here's some pictures:

No white list, hidden menus unlocked.

Report.

That's very awesome fjfc - more options than I've ever seen in any BIOS!
However I can't see anything new that should relate to UEFI, or Secure Boot etc.
I'll try installing Windows fresh on a GPT partition in the next day or two, which will test whether it's working now anyway.
Many thanks, Tom W

I'll take a deeper look on secure boot later, maybe I find something

Thanks for making this,

Just tried this and my Intel 6250 that works with the official F.0F is stuck in disabled mode (it seems). The intel proset wireless utility also says hardware radio disabled. Have tried FN + Wifi (F12) to enable but no change. The card does show up in windows.

The functions keys may not be working - which could be the cause of the broken wifi, pressing FN + F12 or even mute/unmute (FN+F11) results in incorrect actions and no colour change for the lights on the keyboard.

There may be an option on BIOS to disable fn keys or change its behavior
