HeadnotesMany equations and formulas look intimidating. However, when you hunt them down, they are definitely not! Just papertigers!
Now let's hunt the papertiger.
Handing on my new Surface Pro 4,I try to install ubuntu on it. But I lost my “Security” menu in UEFI while I try to boot from a PE in my USB stick.Then I get stuck in the “Restart to Surface UEFI” loop with a message ‘The security settings on Surface cannot be modified at this time. A restart is required to make changes to the security settings’. The default security settings menu no longer appear no matter how many times I restart. I googled as many as I can, but I still cannot find a way to fix this.
Though I nearly give up this, but as a geek I have to know what’s the ball in it. It still lingered in my mind luring me. And most important I feel I lost my control on my computer, which is unacceptable!
I have to know!!! Or I can’t stop to ponder this.
Last night, an idea occured in my mind. I try to turn off the ‘Devices’ to trigger the settings to fix this. The result is amazing. I didn’t believe it worked. The pity is I still don’t know the reason why this happend.
Turn off the Devices:
The Security settings come back again:
Turn on all the Devices, you don’t expect a computer without camera, WIFI, and bluetooth…
Enjoy your full-controled computer again!

FootnotesThere are many excellent tutorials out there. Some tutorials are too intuitive and it's helpful, but you cannot get it straight on the math details. Some focused on dymestifying math. Some focused on code. I found the best tutorials that give you the conceptual ideas and are possible for implementation without being blind to the math details. Drop a comment if I failed. It would be really appreciable.
