Report on UEFI capability/usage?

Is there a way to create a report/collection of machines that are capable of using UEFI, and optionally, which ones already are?

We've got a very large inventory of older machines, and we've determined that we're not going to deploy Windows 10 on anything that doesn't support UEFI with SecureBoot. It would be great if I could easily identify the machines that we know would need replacement first.

Thanks! Wayne

    You can run confirm-securebootuefi in Powershell. You'll have to run it with admin privileges. example:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> confirm-securebootuefi
  • Thanks for the tip CyclopsAdmin, but confirm-securebootuefi doesn't appear to work on Windows 7. I've made sure I have PowerShell 5.1 installed, which I believe is the latest that 7 will run. I still get The term 'Confirm-SecureBootUEFI' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet. Works properly in Win10 however...
