    Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) Provided A Workround For Windows 8.1 Error

    Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) Provided A Workround For Windows 8.1 Error

    Written by Rich Wilde on October 24, 2013





    Windows 8.1 is causing a lot of problems to users trying to install it on their computers. Many users facing an error saying that “secure boot is not configured correctly.”According to the Softpedia reports, the world’s largest semiconductor chip maker, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has provided a simple workaround regarding this error.This message shows on the desktop as a watermark, and is a common error came when upgrading to the new operating system.

    Previously, Microsoft Corporation(NASDAQ:MSFT) suggested that users check to see whether secure boot has been disabled in the BIOS or not, if it is disabled then re-enable it. If that does not work then reset the BIOS back to the factory settings and even then it does not work then reset the computer back to its original factory state and re-enable secure boot.

    User can check the event logs to know which of these problem is there. Go to the view event log and look for either of these logged events: Secure boot is currently disabled. Please enable secure boot through the system firmware or a non-production secure boot policy was detected. Remove debug/pre-release policy through the system firmware.

    That does not resolve problem for those users who don’t see secure boot option. For those users, it is suggested to deploy the latest BIOS update.
    According to Softpedia points, many computer systems do not have a secure boot option available in their Basic Input Output System menu, so the Microsoft’s solution would not work. Fortunately, the largest chip maker has the right solution for the problem. According to that solution, just reboot the computer, go into the BIOS mode and access the secure boot options. Activate the secure boot if it is inactivated or disabled, check the options that says ‘install Intel platform key,’ to save the changes and reboot the system, press F10 key.
