Description

We've received a few reports on tails-testers since I sent the call for testing in 2019-12. Let's triage them!

Secure Boot does not work on

  • HP Spectre laptop Broadwell (alienpup) → asked more info
  • MacBook with T2 chip: blocked by Apple

Secure Boot works on

  • Dell Inspiron 5559
  • Acer Aspire A315-21G (Rodney Vinen)
  • Acer Predator Helios 300 (Jeff Jones)
  • Intel Hades Canyon NUC - i7-8809G CPU (Jeff Jones)
  • Inspiron 20 3043 with Intel Pentium N3530 (Jeff Jones)
  • unspecified 2017 IBM ThinkPad (Jeff Jones)
  • HP Probook 470 G5 (Jeff Jones)
  • Compulab Fitlet desktop (alienpup)
  • HP EliteBook 840G1 (intrigeri)

fixes the boot on

  • Microsoft Surface pro 3 (Jeff Jones); Secure Boot works
  • MacBook Pro 13" 2017 (MacBookPro14,1) but no drivers fo trackpad & keyboard
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • 2011 macbook air

not sufficient to make Tails boot on

These are not regressions AFAIU:

I'll keep triaging further feedback as it arrives.

I'm now satisfied we had enough feedback to spot any really bad regression, so I'm closing this issue.
Among the results, only 1 case is surprising: the "HP Spectre laptop Broadwell" where Secure Boot does not work, pending further investigation if/when I receive more info. But it's not a regression so I won't treat it as a blocker.
