Thanks again Greg, I'll have a look, i have manuals for the mobo and the SSD. I would dearly like to lose the EFI as it's preventing me dual booting Linux, as I say. All previous attempts have...

Thanks for your replies gregrocker and Golden.

As you say Greg, I don't have W8, the mobo just says EFI, so I presume this is not a secure boot situation. I have W7 installed on the SSD, along...

Hi Golden:) There doesn't seem to be anything in the BIOS about disabling secure boot. In fact there is nothing about secure boot at all. I have looked on Linux forums and there seems to be several...
