I'm looking for Rescue CD's like Hiren's Boot CD which allow me to boot without switching to BIOS or turning off Secure Boot. I had no luck finding such thing.

Is it even possible to launch such an utility with Secure Boot enabled?

How can I modify any Rescue CD to launch when in UEFI and Secure Boot enabled? (if possible)

Since only Microsoft’s keys are installed by default, if any, you probably won’t have any luck with this. Except perhaps installing Secure Boot keys is acceptable...? – Daniel B Apr 30 '14 at 15:23
Well I do always have a portable Windows To Go install with me, if that's possible then sure. – Gizmo Apr 30 '14 at 15:24
Several Linux distributions can function as rescue systems and support Secure Boot. Ubuntu, for instance, can be used in this way. – Rod Smith May 2 '14 at 20:26
