In the previous posts, UEFI Secure Boot and Our Planned Approach to Secure Boot, Olaf Kirch has introduced you into the topic of UEFI Secure Boot and the basics of our approach to implementing it in SUSE. In this post, I’ll lead you through the technical details of our Secure Boot plan. So be prepared for this post to be rather detailed. And technical.

Technical is right :-) . I am trying to follow the discussion but at the moment I have other things straining what I carelessly call a "brain" and therefore my question may already be answered by what has been written so far on this UEFI matter.

My question is: what would happen when one should use - as I did today - a bootable CD like System Rescue Disc? (I am guessing that if this were the openSUSE installation DVD then it would have some code in it which would allow it to boot without problems.)



Using openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 KDE 4.8.4 & kernel 3.5.0-2 on a system with-
