Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured properly


Best Answer Tripredacus , 29 October 2013 - 08:10 AM

It seems the process is more than "just turn it on." Enabling it on my test system does not actually enable it until I have it install a Platform Key. After this is done, then the message goes away.

If you have Windows 8 on a GPT disk and SecureBoot isn't enabled, and then update to Windows 8.1, a message appears on the screen saying SecureBoot isn't configured properly. The solution found online of enabling SecureBoot in the BIOS (presuming you have that option) doesn't make the message go away.

Has anyone actually fixed this problem?

Enabling Secure boot should remove it.

 

What is msnfo32.exe telling you about the SecureBoot state?
