I have been trying to setup the PSW on Windows but it asks me to check my BIOS platform settings. I know the processor has SGX capability(Xeon-E3) but I don't find it anywhere on the BIOS setup menu as stated in the manual. Is there any other way to enable SGX so that I can install the PSW ?

Hi Swarup,

Please check with OEM to provide BIOS to support SGX and also visit you platform manufacturer's website and see if they have a BIOS update for this platform.

I will ensure that the Z240 has one of these supported chipsets. SGX was enabled on Z240 with BIOS 1.07. This was the first Refresh BIOS in January 2016.”
