Hey guys ,
I was trying to install proxmoxve on my old macbook pro 2010 (ig) but proxmox requires secure boot . and since this is a macbook you cant enable secure boot

Pls help me guys
see ya !
Are you sure this is not the wrong way round? We still don't support secure boot. However, your MacBook may require it. Anyway, if it does require a secure bootable OS, your best bet may be to install PVE on top of Debian [1].

even if i try to boot the pve on my msi motherboard it says that it i need to activate secure boot to be able to run pve same for the macbook . but what do u mean with install pve on debian ?
