Yesterday, I ran Windows 8 upgrade assistant on my PC, Only problem it gave is that
Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC Your PC's firmware doesn't support Secure Boot so you won't be able to use it in Windows 8.
My PC configuration is
System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. System Model 945GCM-S2L System Type X86-based PC Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz, 2000 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Award Software International, Inc. F5u, 7/14/2008 SMBIOS Version 2.4 Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.1.7600.16385" Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 3.00 GB Total Physical Memory 2.99 GB
Will I be able to run the windows 8 with dual boot (I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.10 Installed) on this kind of configuration. Is it possible without secure boot? Or what other things people have to do who don't have secure boot? What are the problems I will face If I installed windows 8 without secure boot?
