Thread: G75VW Windows 8 not secure boot

  1. #1

    G75VW Windows 8 not secure boot

    So I got my G75VW yesterday and I installed Windows 8 on it, I did a check to make sure it is secure boot and it comes back as false when I run:

    check_SecureBootUEFI

    I also lost the UEFI: Windows Boot Manager option when I did a BIOS update then went back to 207 (Stock) hoping I would get the option back but now all I have are UEFI: Network Boot and UEFI: DVD Drive even after re installing Windows 8.

    My question is:
    Is this normal? If not is there a way to fix it or am I out of luck?

    Stay away from Win 8 upgrade unless you research it thoroughly and know what you are doing and why all the way down the street!
