    Thanks, guys.

    Finally got around to this. No, I don't have it nor did I think I did on this older Acer. But, I like tinkering with this stuff!

    No, my personal ASUS M-series motherboard (haven't got a clue of the model series off the top of my head as I feel too lazy at the moment) doesn't support Secure Boot as it's from the year of 2010, maybe late 2009.

    Several other ASUS boards I've worked with from 2011 supported Secure Boot and ran UEFI BIOS. I've just recently learned how to get Windows 8 installed in that situation correctly.

    I would appreciate any tips on how to install it correctly without secure boot. I am experiencing very slow start-up with my dual boot set-up with Windows 7 and 8

    There should be a setting in your motherboard UEFI BIOS to disable Secure Boot.

    Sorry I wasn't clear my MB does not support secure boot and that may be causing the slow start up.

    That would not be possible. If you want to figure out what's causing the slow boot, you could use a tool like Acronis (for beginners) or grab / install the Windows Performance Toolkit and use wprui to take a boot trace (somewhat more advanced).

    or do alt+ctrl+del and open task manager go to the startup tab and uncheck/close programs that don't need to be running at statup

    I tried this but no change.

    I used the Windows Performance Toolkit to do a boot trace but not sure how to interpret the results.
