'Secureboot is not configured correctly'

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. i have been building a pc for my brother today, and seem to be stumbling along some wierd problems.
On the desktop in the corner of the screen it says 'Secureboot is not configured correctly' as a watermark.

If i enter the bios and try to set secure boot on, it says that CSM is activated and i need to deactivate it, but i have no idea how to do it or where.
If i dont deactivate CSM the computer bugs at boot and sais stuff about the Gfx isnt a windows 8 logo gfx. after that it forces reboot until i return bios to stock settings.

Any ideas ?
We have tried running the pc with a gtx 780 and a radeon 7870..
The mobo is a Msi g45-z87 gaming.

From what i can find it is 'compatibility support module (CSM)'
post #4 of 11
That's something to do with UEFI Installation / Fast boot / Secure Boot, you need to enable secure boot in manual mode I think and install the secure boot then set the secure boot back to auto, and about that CSM, if your GPU doesn't contain a UEFI BIOS then it can't boot windows with it with Compatibility Support Module set to disabled or UEFI only.

I hope this explains it for you. I'd leave CSM on Enabled and set the stuff to Legacy/non-uefi First in those settings. Thats if you haven't installed Windows 8 in UEFI mode, it's in UEFI mode if the Windows 8 boot logo is replaced with your manufacturer's logo, such as Gigabyte (Leading Innovation) , Asus (Inspiring Innovation, Persistent Perfection) , MSI (Don't remember what the slogan is for it)

I think it is in Uefi mode, When i start up the pc there will come a screen with Msi gaming stuff.
How do i change it ? reinstall windows ?
post #6 of 11
You don't reinstall windows, because you benefit from having a UEFI installed windows. You get faster boot and better compatibility with hardware on a UEFI installed windows. Leave CSM on Enabled with the Storage/HDD/SSD set to UEFI first, PCI and etc on Legacy First. See how it works, it should boot fine. This is all done through the BIOS.

Yeah it boots up fine like that. But i cant enable secureboot and thus have a watermark in the corner of the screen saying its not configured correctly.

I have seen on the net that the watermark can be removed. But is it a bad idea to keep secureboot disabled? or should i just remove the watermark and forget about it ?
post #8 of 11
It's better to keep secure boot enable but it's just a enhanced security on booting. So are you saying that you can't boot while CSM and Secure Boot is enabled?

I cant enable secureboot. it says that i need to disable CSM in user mode... But there is no options in the bios to disable CSM. So it is very frustrating and wierd.
post #10 of 11
I'm sure the GTX 780 is a Windows 8 Logo'd graphics card, providing that it is UEFI compatible. In order to have secure boot enabled, you'll need a fully uefi compatible graphics card. Since it seems that you don't have one, You'll need to leave secure boot disabled and theres a way to remove the watermark. Have you done any windows 8.1 windows updates by any chance? This may fix the watermark issue.
