    Did you install a MBR format for a Windows OS? UEFI does not accept any pirated OS version. You can disable your secure boot so you can boot in MBR format, then install a Genuine Windows OS in GPT format. after all installation you should be enable secure boot and fast boot again.

    A Genuine Microsoft Windows 8/8.1 x64 DVD, will boot in UEFI mode, with Secure Boot ENABLED.
