You can disable Secure Boot through the PCís firmware (BIOS) menus, but the way you disable it varies by PC manufacturer. If you are having trouble disabling Secure Boot after following the steps below, contact your manufacturer for help.For logo-certified Windows RT 8.1 and Windows RT PCs, Secure Boot is required to be configured so that it cannot be disabled.WarningAfter disabling Secure Boot and installing other software and hardware, it may be difficult to re-activate Secure Boot without restoring your PC to the factory state.Be careful when changing BIOS settings. The BIOS menu is designed for advanced users, and it's possible to change a setting that could prevent your PC from starting correctly. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly.Disable Secure BootBefore disabling Secure Boot, consider whether it is necessary. From time to time, your manufacturer may update the list of trusted hardware, drivers, and operating systems for your PC. To check for updates, go to Windows Update, or check your manufacturer's website.Open the PC BIOS menu.

To use a CSM, you may also need to reformat the hard drive using the Master Boot Record (MBR) format, and then reinstall Windows. For more info, see Windows Setup: Installing using the MBR or GPT partition style.If youíre using Windows 8.1, you may see a watermark on the desktop alerting you that Secure Boot is not configured correctly.

    Yes I am trying restore an image from Norton Ghost that is back up. People say Norton Ghost is Compatible with 10 you would have to do this --------> Norton Ghost install for Windows 10 I was reading THIS POST on Symantec Connect and user cjm found a solution to activate SSR 2013 in Windows 10. I just made a couple of adjustments and tried Ghost 15 in Windows 8.1. It worked! I edited his instructions for Ghost 15. This is at your own risk. Ghost is outdated and I personally would not feel comfortable using a backup software that is not designed for the OS you are backing up!1. Open the services control panel (View local services control panel)2. Find "Symantec System Recovery" "Norton Ghost" and open the properties3. Change startup type to Disabled and click apply4. Click Stop5. Open a windows explorer and navigate to the install directory (for me it was C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec System Recovery\Agent "C:\Program Files (x86) \Norton Ghost\Agent")6. Right click on VProSvc.exe and select properties7. Change to the Compatibility tab8. Click "Change settings for all users"9. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"10. Change the compatibility mode drop down to "Windows 8 Windows7"11. Click OK12. Click OK again to close the properties13. Go back to Services and open "Symantec System Recovery" "Norton Ghost" properties again14. Change startup type back to Automatic and click apply15. Click Start16. Close the service properties

    You are ignoring the warning from the author of that thread...

    Ghost is no longer supported, and did not support UEFI PCs properly.

    Ditch it and move to Macrium Reflect Free.

    I think you're asking how to boot a boot USB or DVD device? Desktop or laptop, one has to enter UEFI or BIOS and establish a boot order roughly: USB 1st, DVD 2nd, internal hard-drive 3rd. Some computers will require the user to not have a NON-boot in a USB port while booting via the internal hard-drive.
