And the saga of Secure Boot continues.
Yeah, you're pretty much left with the option to either leave it installed and disable Secure Boot (and hope MS releases an update to fix that update) or uninstall it and turn Secure Boot back on and wait for Microsoft to pull the update, hide it, or just ignore it.
Those getting the BSOD with PROCCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED 0x6B (it's the one related to the disk subsystem) will benefit from either reverting the pending update through DISM in the recovery environment (boots after 3 crashes; or burn a USB) or just disabling Secure Boot for now.
Personally, I just removed the update via DISM and am choosing to ignore it.

Yes, that would be it. I know on my board I enabled Secure Boot after the $15 upgrade to Windows 8 with Media Center. I run Linux in VMs (or on Supermicro servers which is a different use case) and really, of I ever install Linux on a different partition I think all the issues with SB and Linux have been figured out by now. I am just a sucker for eye candy - it's why I like OS X and am always torn about Ubuntu. All my Supermicro servers are RHEL based OSes like well, RHEL, CentOS, etc. so my mind is always there a d things like "apt-get" are foreign to me when it comes to the shell.
Seriously, when I was fixing my problem I kept typing "ls" instead of "dir" wondering why Windows PE wasn't showing me the directory list.

I don't think anyone here thinks that, or isn't aware of what's going on.
What we're talking about, is that unlike so many of you
, we shouldn't just 'be cool with it'. And as you can see, many people aren't, or they wouldn't be taking all these measures to be invisible. So if you and your lot are so complacent as to have all your affairs rifled through and thoroughly examined by strangers who don't give a rip about you, then that's your business. The rest of us are going to go ahead and shut that **** off. Which as you can see from this thread, they're doing.
Using their history (even their recent history) as a guide, I find that pretty unlikely. So now they're the kinder, gentler company who doesn't care about their customers. You can see how well metro worked out for them, and that's very recent. As well as the whole touch screen thing. People have tried it out, sure. Do you know anyone who wants to move their arms all around and sit close to the screen? And xbox 1. You see what happened to them with that. Due to their invasive policies, it was boycotted and very nearly died before it ever took off. This is after "new management" took over. They don't seem to have changed much at all really. Actions speak louder than words.
Ah PhotonFanatick, I am just baffled with you and the rest of your lot. Someone said they have CyanogenMod on their phone a few posts back. I guess they didn't realize smartphones are equipped with GPS and my personal favorite: the moment a phone connects to a cellular network it can be tracked whether GPS is on or not by basic methods of measuring signal strength and triangulating for a relative position which occurs on modern cell networks to give you the best service unless a particular tower is overloaded. You must have quite a lot of tin foil hats...
Let me end this with a lovely CBS show speech because it's so fitting (and the show is good):
"You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered "irrelevant." They wouldn't act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up... we'll find [you]."
