    Upgrade Advisor says Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC

    I ran the upgrade advisor and it says Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC.
    I have a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Motherboard and all my other problems with the upgrade advisor are fixable.
    Can I Install Windows 8?
    I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. It seems that I don't have UEFI bios for my motherboard.
    Do we have to have this in order to run Windows 8.

    Yes, you can install Windows 8. None of my computers are compatible with Secure Boot, but they run Windows 8 just fine!
