    What are you talking about? The image clearly shows that secure boot must not be able to be disabled on mobile.

    I'm talking about Windows 10 Desktop, as in what you use in a notebook. You can't run Windows 7 or OS X on a Windows 10 Mobile device.

    It doesn't specific windows phone, it says windows mobile without any quantification. There would be no reason to bloat up a handheld device with UEFI since the hardware is handled by the kernel. I guess we will see when the anniversary update comes out and the new machines follow.

    Okay you're right, it's such an insignificant mobile OS I don't follow anything about it. Still seems odd to use UEFI on a mobile device though but I do see that ARM support was added to the specification back in 2009 so who am I to argue.
