    Anyone has a credible mirror for 10.0.24? I can't download anything from the Intel site, nothing happens when I click to agree or disagree with their license.

    Secure Boot - Confirm Enabled or Disabled in Windows 8

    If Secure Boot is on then Windows 8 is confirmed to be UEFI booted, right? I just updated the BIOS and the startup changed from the usual ASUS logo to the Windows 8 logo, but in msinfo32 the BIOS mode is UEFI and Secure Boot is on. And to add, my boot SSD is GPT.

    Task Manager crashes

    Don't think I want to do a refresh and lose all those settings. Anyway I did a sfc /scannow. It said it repaired some corrupted files but didn't fix the Task Manager crashes.

    Task Manager crashes

    No good. Still getting those crashes once in a while. It would crash and when you try to run it again it reverts back to simple mode and it would sometime crash again.

    Task Manager crashes

    My recent install is the USB 3 Boost by ASUS. Removed it and cleaned up the poorly done uninstall with an unofficial tool. Did the SFC scan and it reports no integrity problems. Task Manager seems to be back proper. Monitoring before marking as solved.

    Solved Cannot boot UEFI install

    Success! Took quite some time, luckily there's enough HDD around otherwise data will be sacrificed. In the end the problem lies with the HDD from the old PC. So for people who are going to use their old data HDD in their UEFI Win 8 build, make sure that there are no logical/extended...
