Re: Current Overview Of 'Secure Boot' By Matthew Garrett

Just to confirm your success, UEFI or legacy intalls?

I'm not doubting that this just opensuse installer faults.

Also, I did flash the mobo bios to the latest available from Asus.

Just FYI: I have 15 Z77 boards with the latest BIOS to include Secure Boot and successfully loaded Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 on all 15 as workstations for devs. They have two options to boot: through the UEFI boot choice menu or Grub's.

We use Ubuntu to run VM's and Win 7 for Visual Studio, not my choice For some reason, managing these clowns includes being their IT in this company... whatever, it beats submitting purchase invoices and dealing with the lowest bitter in computer science.

Good info. I had considered for my own future build going with Linux-only boot with windows 7 restricted to a virtual machine. However, I did like the Asus A.I. windows utility for the P8z77-V Pro mobo when I saw it. It was fairly easy to set the system to overclock (something I have no previous experience with). I used a core i7 3770k unlocked for the build with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO chip cooler.
