    All updated, so far I cant see the difference other than a watermark on my desktop saying SecureBoot isn't configured correctly (doesn't say what to do about it though )

    Oh and my Media center is gone

    Dang, you guys are fast! I came here to be the 1st to post but missed it by the time it took to download and burn the disks THEN come here. Need to clone my SSD before I wipe the drive to do the install.

    Yeah, I've just added it back and enabled secure boot in my bios to get rid of the watermark.

    The only problem now is the nvidia seem a little buggy, the default ones are causing my screens to have a few second blackout every now and again and the latest betas seem to crash one of my cards leaving me only 3 screens to work on, I'm sure we'll see some more drivers in the coming days.
