Ok, my situation is that i have wiped my HDD, including the recovery partition, and installed Win8 x64 and Win Server 2012 x64. It initially came installed with Win7 x64 when i bought it a few months ago. I have always assumed that these 2 OSes will always have UEFI/secure boot enabled, unless the machine in question doesnt support it. I ask because I am attempting to install Ubuntu 12.10 x64 alongside these 2 OSes, but when i boot from my Live usb, i get a message that says "Secure boot not enabled", it then proceeds to the install screen. I'm currently discussing this on the Ubuntu forums but feel that this is also an ASUS issue particular to the G75VW as well, so that's why i'm also posting here.
I would like to have it enabled for all OSes and my BIOS revision is the latest 221. I dont see an option in the BIOS to enable/disable it. But i'm sure that the G75VW supports it.
I have tried issuing a few commands in Linux via the command line, as well as running a utility called GParted (on linux), and it seems that it is not enabled.
I have also tried booting all 3 of my install USBs in UEFI mode when pressing Escape after powering on, but the option only appears for the Ubuntu usb and not for the 8/Server USBs.
So my question is, is it possible to enable it, and how?
