Yea, I submitted it yesterday. Hope it helps for all custom PC builders.

Enabled SecureBoot on my Asus Gene, but the watermark still exists. I have not yet done a BIOS update though.

There's two steps on my board (not ASUS). After you enable it, you can also switch it between "Setup" and "User" mode. If it's in Setup mode, the Windows installation disc can write a new boot loader onto the disk and stuff like that. If it's in User mode the disk is locked down. The message on the desktop only goes away in User mode.

A buddy of mine at work had the watermark even though secure boot was enabled in the BIOS. It turns out Windows was disabling after the 8.1 update. We fixed by manually enabling it in the registry..
Quote:
Press ‘Windows’ key + R on ‘Desktop’ screen
Type ‘regedit.exe’ in run box and press ‘Enter’
On the ‘Registry Editor’ window, read the value ‘UEFISecureBootEnabled’ from the registry under ‘’HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecureBoot\State’’ by clicking the arrow sign in front of the registry entries and return hex value to 1 to enable secure boot.
To change the value, right click on the entry.

Let me know if this works for you guys.

It seems Microsoft have responded and have released an update that will remove the watermark:

You're a beautiful man.

I'll rep you for that. Really didn't want to risk my single BIOS 7970 on flashing it...
