Hi there,

If a secure boot is not available you can clean install the PC with Win 11 ISO when the stable version is released on Oct 5. But you might not get the Windows update and then there might be security and other issues with the PC as you will not be getting regular security and quality updates.
As you have secure boot but cannot turn it on, I would suggest you update the BIOS and have a word with the PC manufacturer for Possible troubleshoot

When you enable UEFI, your drive must be in GPT partition style. If it is not running, it means it is in MBR partition style. You can convert MBR to GPT without losing you data using this documentation:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/mbr-to-gpt

Once your drive is partitioned in GPT style, you can enable secure boot and download Windows 11.

Hope this helps!
