thanks..it works on my pc…
The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
Access is denied.
You will have to disable “Secure Boot” in the BIOS settings of your PC.
When I type in the command as a administrator it says
An error has occurred setting the element data.
The value is protected by Secure Boot policy and cannot be modified or deleted.
Check to see if Windows is Activated!!
