Is it possible? 
I don't want to use Grub Bootloader anymore. But also i cannot turn off Secure Boot in my Bios interface. I have heard for secureboot the OS must be signed from a root of trust? I installed Qubes in legacy mode.

My BIOS is like from a Kindergarden. It doesn't supports any valuable settings for me. I even cannot turn hyperthrading of by default... I own InsydeH20 Bios(Acer). But im not a Bios engineer, i have no clue how to unlock advanced Settings for my BIOS.

Also i have a problem with my Monitor don't turning the backlight off. Is there a workaround for that? Dom0 Log says something that there seems to be a problem.


Greetings
Svetlana

It is possible to install in UEFI on many systems, but hard to know if
yours supports it without trying it or if it will work at all with
Secureboot enabled. Why don't you like Grub? I still use it on one
system too.

You might have to enabled power management under Qubes Menu/System
Tools/Screensaver/Advanced. Do a File/Restart Daemon after changing
settings, or they might not take effect until next reboot.
