UEFI on Latitude E6320

I've enabled UEFI in the boot menu in the BIOS on the Latitude E6320. I re-installed Windows for UEFI.

Everything looks good as far as the installation and configuration in the BIOS. But the PowerShell cmdlets used to confirm it's configured report UEFI SecureBoot are not enabled.

What gives? Why even have UEFI in the BIOS on this laptop if you can't really use it?

Anyone know?

Thanks

Next question - did you enable Secure Boot?  It's separate from enabling UEFI.

Where is it the BIOS? The only setting I can find is in the boot options and that is just UEFI boot manager.

It should be there -- this is the 64-bit version of Windows 8, correct (Secure Boot won't work with a 32-bit OS in a 64-bit capable system like this one)?

64-bit.

I can't find any setting in the BIOS other than the one in the boot menu.

It looks like even though it's UEFI enabled in the BIOS, it still does it's regular BIOS boot:

 

Dell logo, press F12, then enter key for bitlocker, then the windows logo and circling ants... I should only see the Dell log and never the MS Windows logo if I'm not mistaken, at least if UEFI fastboot was enabled.

 

I think this is faux-UEFI on this laptop.
