How to fix SGX disabled by BIOS
If you are encountering an issue where SGX (Software Guard Extensions) is disabled by the BIOS, you can try the following steps to potentially resolve the problem:
- Enter BIOS/UEFI Settings: Restart your computer and enter the BIOS or UEFI settings. The specific key or combination of keys to access the BIOS/UEFI may vary depending on your computer manufacturer (common keys include Del, F2, F10, or Esc).
- Locate SGX Settings: Once in the BIOS/UEFI settings, navigate to the section that contains the SGX settings. The exact location and naming of this section may differ between different BIOS/UEFI versions and manufacturers.
- Enable SGX: Look for an option related to SGX and ensure it is set to “Enabled” or a similar setting. The specific wording or placement of this option can vary, so carefully review the available settings.
- Save and Exit: Save the changes you made in the BIOS/UEFI settings and exit the menu. Typically, you can save the changes by pressing the designated key (usually F10) or following the on-screen prompts.
- Restart Your Computer: Allow your computer to restart, and check if SGX is now enabled. You can verify this by using appropriate software or checking the BIOS/UEFI settings again.
Note that not all computers or processors support SGX, so it’s possible that your system might not have this feature available even if you enable it in the BIOS/UEFI settings. Additionally, modifying BIOS/UEFI settings carries a certain level of risk, so proceed with caution and only make changes if you are confident in what you are doing.
If you continue to experience issues with SGX or are unsure about making changes in the BIOS/UEFI settings, I recommend reaching out to your computer manufacturer’s support or referring to the documentation provided with your device for further assistance.
