Hi there,

For many years i have used a program called 'Parted Magic' it's a boot USB with some great tools one that allows you safe erase a SSD drive (without writing all zero's etc) it's worked fine for years, till today i got this after i had selected it from the boot options (see image)

boot-error.gif

I've not made any changes to my BIOS settings and to be on the safe side re-imaged on a different USB parted magic boot USB, with the same results.
My Macrium boot USB boots fine without this, and if I press the OK it just boots into the Parted magic USB anyway.

I should also point out that it boots into windows fine just like it always has.

Hi there and thanks for the reply

Ran restorehealth which completed succesfully

scannow found no problems.

Though is this relevant as this is happening prior to windows boot up ?

The boot files if they get modified or corrupted can cause error message.

First developed by Intel, Secure Boot performs two tasks when a PC is switched on and before the OS loads. First, it verifies that the motherboard firmware is digitally signed, which helps reduce the risk of rootkits, which will modify the firmware and, thus, corrupt the signature.

Secure Boot then queries the digital signature of the OS in the bootloader to see if it matches a cryptographic signature that’s stored within the UEFI firmware. If both signatures match, the OS is permitted to load. If they don’t, Secure Boot concludes that the bootloader has been tampered with and will prevent the OS from starting.

Upgrade UEFI firmware from website of the manufacturer of your computer or motherboard.

Thanks for that it's interesting, windows boots just fine without an error showing up, and has always done so.

I'm more troubleshooting why when I use the boot menu to boot from this USB (that never used to show it) now does.

If it's that old, then it is entirely possible that the key used for 'Parted Magic' has just passed its expiry date.

openssl does not permit creating a certificate without an expiration date....

That's fine but this is at the boot manager stage, as i say windows boots and other USB's boot fine.
I got a new version of the software and it still did it, Turns out just a reflash of the (same) bios sorted it out :)

Then that would suggest that the particular key/certificate held in the bios that it was being compared with had somehow been lost/corrupted. Not sure how that may have happened, not really my area of expertise.....

I had the same problem with all my computers running Windows 10.
I've tried all these solutions posted here, plus many others to no avail.
I believe the issue with Parted Magic was due to a recent Windows update, that corrupted the BIOS.
The solution to my fix was to go into the BIOS, and load the optimized defaults... that fixed the issue (obviously, if you have to apply some defaults overrides, you need to re-apply those).
Hope this solution will work for you.
