Is there a way to clear the Secure Boot* database?


Intel® Server Board S2600CW2 Intel® Server Board S2600STB

Windows Server 2016 Family*, Windows Server 2008 family*, Windows Server 2008 R2 family*, Windows Server 2012 family*


Secure Boot* Manual Logo test.


The databases are empty the first time the test is run, but on the second run, the test says they aren't and it requests to go into the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) and clear the databases. However, some Intel® Server Boards don't seem to have the ability to do that.


There's a PowerShell* script made by Microsoft that's a part of this Secure Boot* Manual Logo HLK (Windows Hardware Lab Kit) that clears the Secure Boot databases.  Details and instructions on how to run this test is available in the Microsoft website: Secure Boot Manual Logo Test*.

More information about this process is available in Microsoft Docs:

It's possible to check if a product is already beingcertified by Intel for Windows Server* in the Windows Server Catalog. It's also possible check if it has been certified by other vendors, partners, and customers.
