I got a different BIOS for the Lenovo M72e 0896A9G, which does not contain Secure Boot support, bot still boots from plugged-in USB sticks with an UEFI boot loader on them by default. So this is just a choice made by Lenovo in general, totally independent of Secure Boot support. -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security Team
