    It must be there.

    Security menu.

    Unless you installed in Legacy mode in which case it's not applicable but then the drivers would load...

    Sometimes you have to explore every path in your BIOS/UEFI to discover where the option is to disable secure boot.
    The BIOS setup utility is accessed using a key combination before the computer starts the operating system.

    Restart the computer.
    At the initial SONY screen press the F2 key to enter the BIOS setup utility.
    In the BIOS setup utility window, press the ARROW keys to navigate through the menus.
    Press the PLUS (+) or MINUS (-) keys to modify the BIOS setup values.
    Press the F10 key to exit the BIOS setup utility.
    In the Setup Confirmation dialog box, press the ENTER key to save the changes and exit.
    Cheers,
