    Boot problem - digital signature of winload.exe


    Hello, i have windows 8. I wanted to test something and installed Vista on other partition. Nextly i've installed easybcd to add 8's entry into boot menu and delete vistas. But it shows: Click image for larger version
    However F8 doesn't work, just back to the boot menu. I tried repairing by w8 OS disc (automatically and with few commands which i found), but that just recover vista - on w8 still shows the same. I tried also by adding entry with visualbcd, but it still shows this problem.

    Thanks for your answers.
    First solution just shows the same information with efi file.
    Second: I don't see in my bios this option.
    I solved it with this: winload.exe digital signature not verified & boot manager loop Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Just used all commands from this topic.
