Unable to Import Boot Images in ConfigMgr on Server 2016

Attempting to import any boot image in ConfigMgr console showed the following error:

The specified file can not be imported. Make sure the file is not read only and you have read and write access to it.

Checking share and NTFS permissions, confirming file is not read only I then checked C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs\SMSProv.log on the ConfigMgr server.

Searching the log file for the share my boot WIM was in found the relevant error message:

To translate error 577 ran cmd line:

C:\Users\chentiangemalc>net helpmsg 577

Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source.

This is same issue we saw here

The server had Secure Boot Enabled + ADK 1703 installed. Disabling Secure Boot on server allowed the boot image to be imported.

    Hey Malcolm. Can I turn Secure Boot back on after importing it or do I have to keep it disabled?

    • yes you should be able to. However there also may be a fix to this issue in latest ADK to allow it to work with secure boot, I haven’t checked as it’s updated so frequently now and I’m working on all kinds of different projects…
