Same problem here, I was unable to find UEFI or SecureBoot in my BIOS at all... I have an ASUS K55VD Laptop.
I have this too
I got a asus F55A laptop
My guess is that you installed using Uefi boot with GTP partition sheme.
For those of you who have secure boot in bios, try to enable it?
If u haven't in bios, look at your system / motherboard manufacturer for bios update.
As I read it can be removed with a program called "Resource Hacker", anyone know how?
I have the same problem,(I Have win8.1 PRO) my computer is activated I have activate over phone (I have bought win8 key from upgrade win7 to win8), the message "Secure isnt conigured coorrecty" Watermark...is still there...I have Asroc pro4 motherboard with latest bios..any solution...?
I have now repair this "problem" on bios I have enable Secure UEFI and add my personal code..and Works..no more watermark in Windows 8.1 (before that...I have activate Windows)
I also have removed that watermark. as KTr1sk mentioned, enabling Secure boot in bios, but problem was personal code? I somehow cannot install any of my codes... I just installed default one. I dont know
Does this secure boot really matters?
Only matters incase you´re trying to dual-boot with a linux, as with secure boot the system refuses to boot systems without matching certificate.
Secure Boot is nice because it insures that your boot chain is not corrupted by malware. The bios, device roms, windows boot sector and system files are all checked to make sure their signature is valid. While some would say an AV is good enough for this, an AV cannot work if malware takes over before the OS then uses it's escalated privilege to hide, secure boot tries to eliminate that and some other attacks.
I'm using k55vd as well,I don't know how to do...
same problem, my laptop is asus x401
Anyone has solved this problem ?
1) check your BIOS if there is Secure Boot Feature and enable that. if you havent maybe a BIOS update helps
2) Dont install 8.1 in UEFI Mode if your PC isnt Secure Boot capable
A computer can be Secure Boot capable but the video card may not support Secure Boot which is in my case, I turn it on in the bios but because my video card doesn't support a windows 8 boot image the bios turns it off, On Asus boards the boot image is in printed in the bios to bypass this problem.
if your video card doesnt support UEFI / GOP then that makes your PC (as a whole unit) Secure Boot incompatible as to Microsoft specification.
I never heard of a video card not capable of secure boot..... you must be talking about UEFI GOP vbios right? in which its the ultra fast boot you must talking about
This is not true at all. well not entirely true. My video card doesnt have UEFI / GOP vbios but my mobo is secure boot capable...
I activated secure boot and after that, that water mark is gone. Im using now 8.1 for my gaming rig. Its not as stable but it feels ok
100% Correct would be according to Microsoft specification that CSM is disabled and then your UEFI / GOP incapable video card wouldnt boot.
With Asus Boards (maybe others aswell) you can have CSM enabled while secure boot is still enabled
With this setting you can have non-GOP video card and even legacy Boot ( non-UEFI) wheile secure boot is enabled. its just a trick for aftermarked boards
OEMs arent allowed to set up their windows logo compatible machines like that.
alright thanks... no my asrock mobo doesnt have that CSM option in my bios, only the secure boot...
maybe its called different at Asrock, CSM is Compatibility support module
CSM emulates old BIOS while the machine has an UEFI.
i know what CSM means. no i dont have it.
Asus G75VW same problem, no settings in bios!
