    Windows 8 winload.exe digital signature not verified


    When I go to Windows 8 from my Windows 7 boot loader it doesn't boot it just goes to winload.exe signature could not be verified. As you can see from the video Windows 8 DOESN'T boot but Windows XP and 7 does boot fine (didn't show Windows 7 bcs I didn't want to make the video long)

    I got it working by somehow setting windows 8 as an Active Partition and re configuring the MBR or bcd or something like that.
