Secureboot error Hotfix for Windows 8.1


As Microsoft rolled out Windows 8.1 in October last year many user tried to find solution for ‘Secureboot is’t configured correctly’ message on desktop. Microsoft issued an update to fix this annoying watermark problem. Hotfix was issued under knowledge base article KB2902864.

What is SecureBoot ?

Secureboot is a security standard developed by members of the PC industry to help make sure that your PC boots using only software that is trusted by the PC manufacturer.  Microsoft is first to implement secureboot standards in it’s latest Operating System. It is new replacement for the old BIOS in your old systems. SecureBoot simply adds extra steps when it comes to getting a non-Windows operating system to dual boot alongside Windows 8 or 8.1, preventing the loading of drivers or operating system loaders that are not digitally signed. This can be one of the reasons why many people want this SecureBoot feature turned off.

How to disable SecureBoot ?

  1. Open the PC BIOS menu. You can often access this menu by pressing a key during the bootup sequence, such as F1, F2, F12, or Esc.
    Or, from Windows, hold the Shift key while selecting Restart. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings.
  2. Find the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to Disabled. This option is usually in either the Security tab, the Boot tab, or the Authentication tab.
  3. Save changes and exit. The PC reboots.
  4. Install the graphics card, hardware, or operating system that’s not compatible with Secure Boot.

How to re-enable Secure Boot ?

  1. Uninstall any graphics cards, hardware, or operating systems that aren’t compatible with Secure Boot.
  2. Open the PC BIOS menu. You can often access this menu by pressing a key during the bootup sequence, such as F1, F2, F12, or Esc. Or, from Windows: go to Settings charm > Change PC settings > Update and Recovery > Recovery > Advanced Startup: Restart now. When the PC reboots, go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings.
  3. Find the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to Enabled. This option is usually in either the Security tab, the Boot tab, or the Authentication tab.On some PCs, select Custom, and then load the Secure Boot keys that are built into the PC.If the PC does not allow you to enable Secure Boot, try resetting the BIOS back to the factory settings.
  4. Save changes and exit. The PC reboots.
  5. If the PC is not able to boot after enabling Secure Boot, go back into the BIOS menus, disable Secure Boot, and try to boot the PC again.
  6. In some cases, you may need to refresh or reset your PC to its original state before you can turn on Secure Boot. For more info, see How to restore, refresh, or reset your PC.
  7. If the above steps don’t work, and you still want to use the Secure Boot feature, contact your manufacturer for help.
