    NP. Got it disabled anyway! Everything other than Windows is "insecure" to Windows! Reminds me of The big G's "Unknown Sources".

    Yeah, I had to disable that damned 'Secure Boot' as it would not allow me to install Linux on my laptop.

    piss on 'Secure Boot', it is for crap anyway.

    My new Motherboard (Gigabyte G1.Sniper B7) comes with secure boot disabled by default. I'm waiting for a graphics card and 256GB M2.SSD for the build, then it's multi-booting Xubuntu, Mint, PCLOS and (reluctantly) Win10. Although I might run Win10 in Virtualbox.
