    If true, the you would want to disable secure boot by using step 3 in that tutorial.
    Hi Brink,

    The original owner of my laptop upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro, if you can, could you direct me to a guide on how to downgrade/revert it back to Windows 7?

    Note: The laptop does not have UEFI so I couldn't complete the guide I linked above.

    Greg,

    Since it doesn't have UEFI, this will make it easier to return to Windows 7.

    If the factory recovery partition is still in tact, then you may be able to do a factory recovery to restore the laptop back to factory conditions with Windows 7.

    If not, or you prefer a clean install without the factory bloatware, you could use the tutorial below to do a clean install of Windows 7. You will need to have the Windows 7 product key number on the COA sticker on the bottom of the laptop or under it's battery to use to activate Windows 7 with.

    Hello Pichard, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    From your screenshot it looks like you have a GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 3.0) motherboard with UEFI DualBIOS instead of (rev. 1.0) with DualBIOS with Hybrid EFI technology. Please verify the revision number of your motherboard.

    I looked through your manual, and I don't see anything about it have secure boot as well.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Is is strange for this new of a motherboard to not have secure boot? Is it possible that it's called something else?
