 Ventoy enroll key manager not working in new Dell laptops that use SecureBoot
#1
In earlier Dell models, enrolling the ventoy key into the key manager works fine and allows you to boot Ventoy after enrolling the key.

However, in at least the new Dell Latitude 5550's, this no longer works.  As a matter of fact, you don't even get the pop up from Ventoy to enroll the key into the key manager, it just tries to boot, then can't.

The only way to boot Ventoy with new Dell laptops is to disable secure boot in the bios, do what you need, then re-enable secure boot.

Can you put this on a buglist or a list to fix?

Any word on this?  Would be nice to be able to enroll the keys again instead of disabling secure boot every time, then re-enabling it afterwards (which sometimes can be forgotten).

Yes I can confirm this error, it is the case with all Dell models we use (a lot of different Latitude & Optiplex models).
It started with 1.0.99. All our computers use secure boot, so it is a bummer.
There is definitely something in the implementation of secure boot in Dell computers that does not work with the latest implementation of Ventoy key enrollment, firmware version does not play any role in my testing (older or newer, same errors).

Downgrading to at least 1.0.98 is necessary, or disabling secure boot, which is not really an option.

Hope they can fix it.
