    Default GA-X58A-UD5 Problem not booting from CD under Windows 8. (Non UEFI BIOS)

    Hi, I tried booting from CD the other day and ran into this.

    For some strange unknown reason I can non longer boot my machine from anything. USB/DVD etc.

    It bypasses everything that I set in the BIOS and goes straight into Windows.

    Upon further investigation I found out that MS have implemented a Secure Booting mechanism with Windows 8. But this only applies to Motherboards that have a UEFI BIOS.

    My BIOS is a legacy 2011 Award. Therefore SB shouldn't work.

    But it is. I have checked the setting in the BIOS and nothing has changed. There is no reference to Secure Boot.

    I managed to get the same result when I tried to boot my Windows 8 Laptop with the same media. That has a UEFI BIOS so I went in and disabled Secure Boot and the it worked.

    What can I do? It means that I can't boot my PC from a CD/DVD, re-install another O/S or backup my machine using a third party imaging disk.

    Thanks

    I can get into the BIOS ok and change the Boot order etc.

    It just wont boot from any device. I've got the priority as CD/DVD/USB HDD/HDD. I

    t's like something is preventing it from booting.

    I have version F13 (Award) 01/10/2012.

    This is also happening on my other Windows 8 Desktop machine with an Asus board. Both other these have a legacy BIOS.

    Thanks
