This device only has the firmware TPM 2.0 implementation.

Yes, it comes with Windows 10.

Yes for me that outputs a lot of hex :)

That is a very good question, I'm using: shim-ia32-13-0.7.x86_64, which is
the last version for F27 AFAICT.

But Jeremy's tablet might very well be not using the shim at all, as
I manually installed Fedora 25 on the tablet he now has, before Fedora supported
machines with 32 bit EFI. I then later did a "dnf distro-sync" to Fedora-27.

Jeremy might also very well still be booting using a grub binary I build
manually back then, without any shim being involved.

Jeremy what does efibootmgr -v output on your device ?
