    Still nothing i don't understand this why is it not showing as working ? its a clean install and secure boot is on but shows off in the windows msinfo32, is wired and i don't quit understand as to why its like this, Could it be that my main board is setup to do both legacy and UEFI ?

    check the OEM website for a bios/firmware update

    try disabling legacy support - secure boot is a uefi feature

    Just did i have the latest Bios no more after this and i disabled Legacy support and still no go must be broken or something is very wired. I will try and contact MSI on monday and see what they say about it.

    Step 1:

    to open it go to: Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools
    open computer management > disk management


    step 2:
    again go to: Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools
    open powershell as administrator and copy/paste following then hit enter:

    It's simple,
    If the computer supports Secure Boot and Secure Boot is disabled
    then this command returns False.

    What is confusing you (probably) is that enabling secure boot in BIOS doesn't make difference simply because, I have gone one page back and re-read your first post where you said this:
    Code:
    i deleted and formatted main partition with windows, re installed it re-activated
    If I understand your quote you obviously didn't format your disk properly, just deleted the C partition, formatted and install on that just like that?

    Your image of disk manager should look like this one:

    Ignore my D\ drive, but as you can see you're missing TWO partitions, and the EFI partition present in your image is probably remnant of previous windows? I don't know, you need to confirm that, only you know what steps have you done while formatting C partition.

    Obviously if you want secure boot and UEFI simplest way is to reinstall Windows and follow some tutorial for UEFI installation.
    See this link for technical details:
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824839.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
    In the above link at the end you can find a script that you can use if you're familiar with diskpart, otherwise use some more simplistic tutorial.

    There is one more thing you can do to check if your disk is GPT or MBR.
    Open command prompt as admin and type:
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk 0
    list partition


    output should look like this: (Note the GPT mark)

    Click image for larger version


    You should also see at least 4 partitions.
    Hope that help clarify things.

    If you go into BIOS and change setting there from "secure boot" to "legacy mode", does that prevent you from booting the system?
    If you change these settings windows should not be able to boot up. there you should see an error such as "no bootable device"
    however switching the setting back from "legacy mode" to "secure boot" should start booting windows up.

    Can you confirm this?

    ok so a post over here at this place explains as to why disk management is not showing my reserved its not visible on a clean install of win 8.1 it seams the system hides it, and that you can only see it with diskpart. here is the article https://social.technet.microsoft.com...w8itproinstall
