I'm buy asus k64cb wx126d (Free dos ) No have license os // No have menu uefi boot
FreeDOS on it?

WX126D...
The only one I found is k46cb here.

and then I go here:
K46CB - Notebooks & Ultrabooks - ASUS

I don't see any FreeDOS option but it might get the price a little lower and I don't know if differences in the BIOS exist (secureBoot is for Win8 machines).

If you install Win8 make sure you upgrade the BIOS too, if possible, check version first: it might not be needed.

Anyway that's a new laptop that can have UEFI enabled by default.

I guess that explains why the options are not available then.

IF you have installed windows 8 license UEFI Boot menu or not.
Looks like to me, the ASUS K46CB with DOS Pre-installed have the old UEFI/BIOS firmware, & the ASUS K46CD with Windows 8 Pre-installed have the new updated UEFI/BIOS firmware.

I followed all the instructions that Shawn posted. According to the UEFI Firmware Settings, my Secure Boot is enabled. The Security Boot Not configured watermark still shows on my desktop.

What else should I do to get rid of the water mark?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Bobi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Once secure boot is enabled, it will still need to configured properly for the secure boot keys. Usually you should have an option to load them. Give me a minute, and I'll add a screenshot to the tutorial of mine to help show this better. :)

Unfortunately, your NE51B manual at the Gateway link below doesn't mention anything about this.

Thank you Brink for the welcome and your quick reply to my post.

I have been struggling with this since I upgraded to 8.1 this morning. Your post was the only one that made sense to me and I have been everywhere on the "Net", looking for a solution. I did try my Gateway manual, didn't find any answers.

I appreciate your help.

Ok Bobi. I added the extra screenshots for my motherboard in the tutorial. I hope that they will help with yours. If not, then please go ahead and post some screenshots showing your secure boot settings in UEFI to see if we may be able to help sort it.

Thanks so much.:)

Hi

I can't get secure boot to work.
When i enable it, and restarts the computer it stops att "Shell>"
And then i tried to change some other secure boot settings.
And after that restart it stopped at "Shell>" again. and nothing worked. My keyboar for example.
I had to clear my cmos, to get i t working again.

i don't know what to do?

I only want to enable it, because i don't like the watermark on my screen :)

Are installed in UEFI mode?

As the new MOBO's now have a uEFI/BIOS firmware.

Hum. i upgraded from win8 trough windows store.
And Win8 i got by upgrading my win7 installation.

So i suppose i haven't installed it in UEFI mode?

Does it mean that i have to first re-install windows 7 in UEFI mode. And then upgrade to win8, and then upgrade to win8.1?
If that is the case, then i don't care as much about the watermark :D

Good point David. I added this below to the red warning box at the top of the tutorial to help. :)

If you have a Windows 8.1 device that has the device encryption feature turned on and disable secure boot, then you may not be able to access the data on the disk until you enable secure boot again.

this is my 2nd attempt at enabling secureboot. 1st time my drives were MBR partitioned, and I had no hope of accomplishing this. Now my drives are GPT partitioned. I am attempting to enable secureboot on a custom machine I built myself, from parts ordered from Amazon.

when I attempt to enable secureboot in UEFI, it does not let me. I see a message that says "secureboot can be enabled only when the Platform Key (PK) is enrolled and running in user mode and CSM function is disabled"

so it appears there are 3 or 4 things I need to do still - make a platform key (unless I already have one and don't know it), enroll said platform key, put my platform in user mode (I think it is in setup mode), and disable CSM function.

This is all unfamiliar territory to me, any help?

Hello Yu Gnomi,

Do you have Windows 8.1 installed with UEFI and not legacy BIOS mode?

If you do have it with UEFI, then see if you are able to clear the secure boot keys while in your UEFI firmware settings first, then see if you area able to enable secure boot and install the default keys.
