    You shouldn't need secure boot to use it. But why even bother with Windows 8? It looks like crap to me too and it's going to be years before there are any games out that require Windows 8. I see no reason for any of us to switch. I'm going to stick with 7 until Microsoft figures out that my computer is not a tablet!
