    1. Microsoft releases it's latest version of Windows with it's most restrictive hardware requirements ever honoring it's decades old deals with the major hardware vendors to push new hardware in exchange for resisting Linux pre-installs.
    2. Microsoft details how to bypass the restrictions while absolving Microsoft of any responsibility or promise to provide security updates while allowing the majority of users to upgrade.
    3. After a few security scares Microsoft offers access to it's subscription service with faster security updates to everyone even people with unsupported installs.
    4. The era of Microsoft Tax finally ends as the world embraces Microsoft Rent.

    (cant be bothered making new thread. relevant to this anyway)

    SECURE BOOT Question.
    just been reading this
    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-e...all-windows-11
    and it says drives needs to be in GPT format and UEFI enabled. well mines in MBR and legacy.

    then I read https://www.windowscentral.com/how-c...efi-windows-10


    whats confusing me is. do ALL my drives need to be in GPT or can they still be MBR. so i only need convert the C drive? then enable UEFI and Secure boot in the BIOS.
    will the MBR drives still work after? or just not be shown in explorer because theyre not compatible?
