Testing Fedora CD/DVD Secure Boot in a VM
Testing Secureboot in a VM
The boot screen you'll see should use `linuxefi` commands to boot the installer, and you should be able to run `efibootmgr` inside that system, to verify that you're running an UEFI OS.
These steps describe how to test Fedora Secureboot support inside a KVM VM. The audience here is QA folks that want to test secureboot, and any other curious parties. This requires configuring the VM to use UEFI, so it builds upon the previous UEFI steps.
The VM will restart. Let it boot into Fedora as normal. Log in
