How can we improve the SDA (K2000)?

UEFI Secure boot

UEFI Secure Boot.

With the release of uefi pxe boots, we can now load images on our dell computers with much less interaction during the unbox. We are still forced to disable secure boot on all new systems before we can boot them.

1. Secure boot is a prevalent security patch that negates boot malware from infecting systems. this alone should be reason for integrating secure boot loads

2. all our equipment ships from dell with secure boot enabled under uefi, so I feel our Dell K2000 should be able to image Dell equipment out of the box without needing to modify the bios (so i guess dell needs to enable uefi network stack by default as well...). I recognize this is an opinion, but i feel it should be pointed out.

        Yes, we recently (believe it or not) switched from Legacy to UEFI to minimise tech interaction during the imaging process. How wonderful was it to find out we STILL need to touch the BIOS to disable Secure Boot to boot with UEFI!
