    Secure boot problem on a non EUFI BIOS using Windows 8


    I never had any problems with this before and nothing has changed in my BIOS.

    But I can longer boot my PC from CD/DVD or USB.

    I have noticed that MS have been playing about with something that interacts with the Secure Boot spec in EUFI BIOS's. Well, that's of if you have the option to turn it off in your BIOS.

    But what about the people with non EUFI legacy BIOS's that are running Windows 8? In theory is shouldn't right?

    Well something is working and it's preventing me from using any kind of media.

    It has nothing to do with the media because it works find under Windows 7 and XP.

    Has anyone else come across this problem. It used to work fine when I first installed Windows 8. It's like they applied an update.

    Has anyone else come across this problem?
