Windows 8 Upgrade and Secure Boot Compatibility RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I really know nothing, utterly clueless, about computing and whatnot but I would want to upgrade my Windows 7 laptop (Toshiba) to Windows 8 Pro. I run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant which showed me that one of the things I would have to review is the fact that "my PC's firmware does not support Secure Boot" present in the Windows 8 Pro software, which I would not be able to use if I were to install it. 

    How important is this compatibility? Can I overlook it? 

    Thank you in advance
