Hello everyone I have older Z270 GAMING PLUS motherboard running MSI CLICK BIOS 5 and i want to play games that require Secure boot so UEFI setting in BIOS. When I put UEFI and secure boot in my bios and restart it won´t open Windows11 and it does not detect the SSD. I need help i tried everything. I would ask in Live chat but my country does not support it. BTW I updated bios and every driver is updated. If could anyone help me out i would be really happy.
 
With the BIOS in the modern, more advanced and nowadays preferred UEFI mode, it requires the boot drive to have a so-called GPT. But if your BIOS previously was in the older CSM mode (which means you probably re-used an old Windows installation or installed Win11 with a trick to circumvent the requirements), the boot drive will have a so-called MBR. So you have to do a MBR to GPT conversion for the Windows boot drive, then the BIOS in UEFI mode can boot from it again. Use that guide or any other you can find on the matter. It takes just a bit of reading and a couple minutes of work to get this converted.

Well I had Windows 10 on CSM mode for long years. then like 1 -2 years ago i switched to Windows11 using the method to go around _ your pc does not meet requirments (Even when it did). I will try it but maybe do you have the convertion for Windows 11 or it does not matter ?
 
The conversion works the same on Win11 (one could argue it's just Win10 with a bit of make-up on anyway).

ok so I change it. UEFI boots me into windows 11 but I now need to boot into Bios to enable Secure boot and it won't open Bios. I tried Del, F2 but nothing it loads into Windows 11
 
You might actually be in the BIOS and just not seeing the picture. Because i imagine the screen stays black, and it doesn't keep booting Win11, right? If so, check all the outputs of your graphics card, sometimes the BIOS is only shown on one of them. Also, if you can't get it to show, list your graphics card model, sometimes the firmware of it needs to be updated to work properly with an UEFI BIOS.
