    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.

    From page A-4 in the appendix of the K46CB manual, do you have any other options available when you have UEFI Boot set to be "Enabled"?

    The ASUS K46CB also comes with DOS Pre-installed.

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

    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.
