In Fedora 28/29all flavours: there is a reported bug( concerning many HP EliteBooks with built-in TPM1.2/TPM 2.0chip : they are all not boot-able with activated TPM-proctection, often used in Dual-boot environments with Windows 10 etc. There is a workaround on github: for building a trusted grub2 environment under Fedora for using the TPM chip on these HP notebooks. My question now: Please explain detailed how to use GitHub and to build such a trusted grub2 environment for Fedora. I have never used before GitHub and so I am a newbie in this case.

Thank you.

You would start by cloning the project

git clone

The project contains README and INSTALL files with instructions and other informations, which you sould need to read. If you are not familiar with the various development tools, such as the C compiler and make file, then it would be rather difficult.

Also bear in mind that Fedora now has a very custumized version of grub which may or may not be compatible with the GrustedGrub version.

Thank you @villkruse: I let it be, because the efforts are too high and the result will perhaps not be satisfying. For me it is a shame, that Fedora is not able to boot on so many of TPM-secured systems in the age of Cyber-crime.
