  1. i have this problem, i did every thing in here but after i access BIOS i cant find the word “secure boot” anywhare.
    Does it mean that my PC isn’t capable of Secure Boot?

    I have Asus G75vw and updated my BIOS to the latest version (223).

    • Hi Omar, I’ve Asus RoG G75vw too and i’ve the same problem. I spoke with an Asus technician told me that the BIOS is compatible with the secureboot but the old PC versions do not have the option. The problem will certainly be solved with a BIOS update. we just have to wait ;)

  2. Your suggested steps worked perfectly for me. It remains to be seen whether the update to 8.1 is worth all of this hassle. Thanks for the solution! Blessings.
