OK will try this thanks
Still nothing i don't understand this why is it not showing as working ? its a clean install and secure boot is on but shows off in the windows msinfo32, is wired and i don't quit understand as to why its like this, Could it be that my main board is setup to do both legacy and UEFI ?
check the OEM website for a bios/firmware update
try disabling legacy support - secure boot is a uefi feature
Please perform following:
Post an image of disk management
to open it go to: Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools
open computer management > disk management
again go to: Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools
open powershell as administrator and copy/paste following then hit enter:
post output of the above command here
there is the image for you also the command you gave me says False i don't get it ugh !!
If the computer supports Secure Boot and Secure Boot is disabled then this command returns False.
What is confusing you (probably) is that enabling secure boot in BIOS doesn't make difference simply because, I have gone one page back and re-read your first post where you said this:
If I understand your quote you obviously didn't format your disk properly, just deleted the C partition, formatted and install on that just like that?Code:i deleted and formatted main partition with windows, re installed it re-activated
Your image of disk manager should look like this one:
Ignore my D\ drive, but as you can see you're missing TWO partitions, and the EFI partition present in your image is probably remnant of previous windows? I don't know, you need to confirm that, only you know what steps have you done while formatting C partition.
Obviously if you want secure boot and UEFI simplest way is to reinstall Windows and follow some tutorial for UEFI installation.
See this link for technical details:
In the above link at the end you can find a script that you can use if you're familiar with diskpart, otherwise use some more simplistic tutorial.
There is one more thing you can do to check if your disk is GPT or MBR.
Open command prompt as admin and type:
select disk 0
output should look like this: (Note the GPT mark)
You should also see at least 4 partitions.
Hope that help clarify things.

If you go into BIOS and change setting there from "secure boot" to "legacy mode", does that prevent you from booting the system?
If you change these settings windows should not be able to boot up. there you should see an error such as "no bootable device"
however switching the setting back from "legacy mode" to "secure boot" should start booting windows up.
Can you confirm this?
ok so a post over here at this place explains as to why disk management is not showing my reserved its not visible on a clean install of win 8.1 it seams the system hides it, and that you can only see it with diskpart. here is the article https://social.technet.microsoft.com...w8itproinstall
