Can I upgrade to Win 8.0 without Secure Boot?

#1 Post by warp4dennis » Thu Feb 05, 2015 10:42 am

16 of my applications and devices are compatible with Win 8.0. Only 2 need some help. One of them I have never heard about before. That's this "Secure Boot" thing.

"Secure Boot requires firmware that supports UEFI v. 2.3.1 Eratta B and has the MS Windows Certification authority in the UEFI signature database."

Can I get along without it? And the other is a different driver to play DVDs in Windows 8. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
