    I don't game, but I mess with Visual Studio (I wouldn't call it development, per se, but some code comes out sometimes ) and run virtualized machines for test quite heavily, yes. It's actually better NOT to have anything high-end for something like this (it'll run Server 2012, likely, not Windows 8, but we'll see).

    Ahh ok. Nice 480GB PCI-E ssd though, so pricey. Hehe

    Yeah, the throughput for virtual machines is insanely fast. Horrid as a boot drive, absolutely insane for hosting virtual machines.

    Sorry if this thread is out of date. I have a ASUS P8Z68-V Pro which doesn't support Secure Boot as a previous poster mentioned. Is this why my dual boot boot is taking so long to load? From re-start or cold boot it takes about 60 seconds to reach the dual boot screen. Is there anyway to fix this?

    I don't really care. I run Windows 8 in virtual - from an external SSD. WMware Player shields all those complications and I can run my virtual systems (3) from any machine.

    My Inspiron i3 3rd gen has it I already knew from the day I received it when I went into the bios. Powershell is a perfect utility to confirm it.
    Edit: Also forgot to mention it can be disabled if I ever want to dual boot the thing.

    As you have an ASUS P8Z68-V Pro, build date 2010/2011, no support for Secure Boot, ASUS added support for Secure Boot for new motherboards in 2012.

    I have only one account and it is administrative. How do I get privileges to perform this?
