I am trying to install Nvidia drivers using this tutorial but without using -s command (read up on it here) it won't install against DKMS so I tried disabling secure boot and unfortunately, GPU won't work correctly and resolution is fixed to 640 ( also windows 10 won't boot) and if I enable secure boot now fedora won't boot.

so I need a key pair, one public key, and one secret key. is OpenSSL capable of generating those keys or is there another way to get those keys?

my fedora is 27 and I use a gtx 970 graphics card

The easy method to install NVidia drivers is to use the rpmfusion repository. Fedora won't boot or the graphics aren't working? Here's the instructions on how to sign a kernel module. The information starts about half way down the page. I have successfully done this in the past for an out-of-tree kernel module. And yes, you use openssl to generate the keys.

I'm surprised that Windows 10 won't boot with secure boot enabled. But the resolution problem suggests that you might not have the right driver for your graphics.
