    Has anyone managed to turn off Secure Boot on a running Windows 8 installation WITHOUT actually having to reinstall the entire OS?

    I'd love to make a dual-boot machine here, but since 8 was preinstalled on my gf's lappy, Secure Boot is enabled by default. Disabling it in UEFI menu causes Windows to fail startup (No OS found it says).

    I'd hate to have to disable it, setup Win 8 clean, then set up the dual bootage.

    Hi all, I wanted to ask something and I don't think a new thread is required. So, Windows 8 comes with Microsoft Framework 4.0 installed, which is great. I have none of the previous version installed on. But I downloaded nVidia Inspector program, because I really like it. When I start the "install" it says it requires Framework 3.5 (service pack 1). I am wondering is it worth it for one app to install this>? Is it going to mess up the rest of the PC? Do I need both versions of MS Framework? (I saw some complaints about Intel HD Graphics drivers giving glitches without the 3.5 Framework). What do you think?

    Windows 8 comes with .net framework 4.5 turned on by default and .net framework 3.5.1 turned off.

    To turn on 3.5.1 see this post.

    Many programs require .net framework 3.5.1 and no it won't mess up your system.

    Thanks a lot. I kinda quoted the version by heart :D. I already downloaded from MS the full offline installer- 231mb, but hey that's cool too with the DVD. It will take more time to find it in the pile though than just DL :D
