Re: Windows 8 is gone

Hi fellows, I had to install Mint in CSM boot mode to bypass "Secure Boot". What would happen if I now switched boot back to UEFI mode? Will it automatically reinsert "Secure boot"? I don't want to just start pushing buttons. Do you think bricking has me worried? :) Thanks PS to ...

Re: Windows 8 is gone

Hi guys, thanks much for this discussion. I'm reading, reading. Both of you seem to agree the quick boot should be disabled if I want to dual boot Win8 and Mint, right? But I have to get Windows to boot first. "Boot Repair" seems like a magic bullet. Gets Windows back if gone (my case), or...

Re: Windows 8 is gone

Thank you for your work. And it's good news..I think. Bricking sounds bad. I never in a million years would have come up with with these ideas, except the "clear everything and start over" option. The flip side of the coin..I'm chewing on this, digesting. I get the general idea of the prob...

Windows 8 is gone

You're probably saying..so what? It's supposed to be there in a dual boot scenerio. I followed a step by step tutorial for installing Mint 13 with Win 8 by NoErrors. Mint will boot..with some issues. Not serious I hope, but Windows seems to have disappeared. That's the gist of it. Being a relative n...

win 8 digital signature error message

Hello all...New to the forum..Not exactly new to linux but it's been quite a while. All right, enough chit chat...I got a new laptop..Toshiba p850 class with Win 8 preinstalled. I would like to dual boot Linux Mint 13, and I think I just came face to face with that 'secure boot' thing that Micro$oft...
