Are you talking about Secure Boot? That is a scheme instituted and employed by Windows 8, but it is easily disabled in UEFI BIOS settings. There is plenty of information about it on this forum and the web if you needed to know.

The UEFI BIOS is not a "part of Windows" however. They are 2 systems that work together.
As with any new tech, there is a learning curve.
