Windows 8.1 Desktop Watermark SecureBoot?

Nov 24, 2013

Past Friday windows 8.1 ran some updates and I think it's since then the watermark with SecureBoot disappeared from my desktop.

I tried to remove this watermark before with my friend; My2cents. But we couldn't remove it because I had not eufi boot control panel. He told me he would provide a workaround to remove the thing and now it's solved.

Setup Installation :: Remove Secure Boot Isn't Configured Properly Watermark

Oct 31, 2013

not sure if this has been posted but download this update from the Ms site if your watermark with this message doesn't disappear after you've activated your Windows 8.1 installation.

Download Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB2902864) from Official Microsoft Download Center

I got the message after updating an HP sleekbook 4 laptop to Windows 8.1 enterprise (TechNet version from ISO) from the Windows 8 pro that was pre-installed with the laptop (plus all the other zillion bits of bloat /ad / crapware).-- I disabled protected boot -- more trouble than it's worth - especially if you are testing OS'es -- but KEPT the UEFI .

Browsers/Mail :: IE 11 Shows Correctly Configured But Doesn't Work

Oct 21, 2013

Have just downloaded Windows 8.1. Although IE11 on desktop snaps open, and Google shows up OK, searches for simple things like Zone Alarm or Avast anti-virus say can't be connected despite trouble shooter saying the net is configured OK. In fact no searches seem to work through Google.

Direct links to various web sites like Java work OK which confirms the net is set up right.

Are there known issues with Google and Microsoft?

Maintenance :: System Image Backup And Secure Boot Isn't Configured Correctly

Oct 21, 2013

Windows 8.1 64 bit pc48 GB RamIntel i7 - 3960X CPUBoxxTech ComputerDrive C: SSD - 446 GB

When I first got my new personal computer in January, I created a System Image using Microsoft's utility. I typically use Acronis for my backups, but after major changes, I use both Microsoft and Acronis.

Now, I am attempting to complete a System Image Backup using Microsoft's utility so that I can fix my SecureBoot concern, knowing that I have a safety net in place. Unfortunately, I am unable to complete a backup. BoxxTech suggests that I use Microsoft's utility.

I begin with the File History in the Control Panel as shown below. Note, that I have plenty of room on my FreeAgent F Drive (standalone USB drive). Yet, Microsoft's utility believes otherwise.

Only the three items that shown to be selected are selected. In other words, there are no other drives or partitions off-screen that are selected.

Thinking that it might be a problem with my external USB hard drive, I look at using one of my internal drives, T.

I get the same error message as shown earlier.

why I am unable to back-up my personal computer using Windows 8.1?

Hardware Drivers :: Transfer Programs And Files From Dual Core To Quad Core?

Sep 15, 2014

I have two laptops made by the same manufacturer and same year, but one is a dual core laptop with an SSD harddrive and the other is a quad core laptop with a regular hard drive. Both laptops run Windows 8.

I would like to transfer my programs and files from the dual core to the quad core. However, obviously the quad core has different hardware.

I am wondering if I simply remove the SSD from the dual core and put it into the quad core (replacing the quad's primary hard drive with the SSD) and simply boot up the quad core, would that be sufficient? Will the quad core recognize the hardware mismatch and automatically correct the drivers, while keeping my programs and files?

Or is there some other, efficient way to make the transfer?

UEFI / Secureboot Preventing Linux Bootup - Will Windows 8.1 Work After Removing It

Apr 30, 2014

Okay now I have an issue with windows, namely secureboot and UEFI. HP Pavilion laptop that came preinstalled with windows 8.1 but didnt like it and wanted a dual boot.

So I gave him Ubuntu 13.10 as it has UEFI support and everything was fine until we updated to Ubuntu 14.04. Sadly it did not load windows via grub and windows would fail to boot.

However after repairing the windows boot manager I knew I had to reinstall linux which would normally be fine but now windows and windows alone now boots, no grub, no nothing.

I heard recently of this story: [URL] ....

However I checked everything and windows seems to be the cause of my woes. As does UEFI. Now we would like to keep windows on this machine however I am thinking of removing the /efi partition

Will windows 8 still work if I do this?

Windows 8.1 Pro Watermark Cannot Remove

Mar 2, 2014

I recently tried the "sfc /scannow" command. It said it fixed corruptions and after a restart a "Windows 8.1 Pro" watermark showed. I tried to remove it using the My_WCP_Watermark_Editor.exe app. However, it gave me errors in various Modern Apps like the Windows Store app wherein it would crash whenever I type something in the search bar. I did the "sfc /scannow" command again and it fixed the Modern Apps errors but the watermark appeared again. How to remove this watermark it is very annoying. Don't tell me to activate my Windows because it is already activated. I can use the Personalization settings in the start screen.

It added the "Test Mode" and the "Build 9600" because I accidentally clicked the apply settings the first time opening the app. There must be some way to remove the annoying watermark...

So are there any other ways to activate Windows 8.1, or at least get rid of that watermark.

Windows 8.1 Pro Build 9600 Watermark

I have done a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro Build 9600 using a genuine MSDN ISO.

After the installation was complete i did all the updates and after that i decided to activate.

The activation was a success and the watermark disappeared but after a restart it came back on my desktop.

If in CMD i type "slmgr/xpr" it says widows is permanent activated so how come the watermark is still there?

How To Remove Windows 8.1 / Build 9600 Watermark

Oct 19, 2013

I just upgraded my legal copy of Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. I've also installed all the currently available updates. The problem I'm faced now is the watermark on my wallpaper near the clock (Bottom-right side of the desktop). It currently says: "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured corrently Build 9600" .

I have to admit, I have disabled secure boot. I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about this in these forums, but let's just say I have another OS installed an my PC (I use GRUB to load the two Operating Systems)...

Win8 Pro - Windows Has Wmc BUT Is Not Activated

Oct 1, 2013

my laptop came with win8 core edition. Anyways, i updraged to pro version using add features to windows and activated it. DONE

everything was fine untill for some stupid reason i remembered that i have a wmc key (the one microsoft gave for free for some time). So i searched my email and found the key. I was not expecting it to work as the time period to install the free key was over.

Anyways, i decided to try it out. I enter the key in add features and i am surprised to see that it says the key is valid. so i clicked next. It installed fine and when it rebooted i was even greeted with a screen saying everything worked fine. Then i notice windows is not activated. I go to activation and it returns the error saying the key is blocked.

Now my windows has wmc BUT is not activated. I can not use my win8 pro key since it does not have wmc. I searched online and it seems that the only way to go back is to reinstall win8

Is there any way to remove wmc? Or any other way i can activate my windows using my pro product key?

I dont understand if the key was blocked why did it say that the key works :

Hardware Drivers :: No Turbo Boost And Core Parking In Windows 8

Mar 2, 2012

I have an i7 2630QM in my laptop. Sandy Bridge, like it very much, and so on..

I was kinda surprised when I saw that according to Windows 8 Task Manager it never exceeds 2,0 GHz. It's supposed to go to 2,8 with all four cores and in Windows 7 it does that very often.

Also, no Hyper-Threaded cores are ever parked, period. Windows 7 always parks four.

Is this something that occurs just on my system for some curious reason or is there something wrong in general?

Security :: Windows 8.1 Core And Enterprise Dual Boot And Bitlocker

Sep 16, 2013

I have Windows 8.1 Core and Enterprise dual booted. Now, the real question here is, well I've read online that Windows 8.1 had finally added some of the encryption functionality of Bitlocker in a limited sense setup and turned on by default in all editions of Windows including Core - similar to how it does this with RT. The thing is on that point I've read about this, but no-one on the internet seems to know how to describe this functionality with more detail than just a mention of the existence of this.

Yes, I know Windows 8.1 is a brand new OS - so new that it won't be available to the normal public for another month and a half. And yes, I know, this RTM is still incomplete and when it will be complete within this next month and half maybe some of these new features (like the default limited Bitlocker as well as the Wifi hotspot functionality (which I figured out how to setup with Powershell, but there's no easy and normal way to go about doing this (how are normal people going to set it up? Normal people are afraid of Powershell/Command Prompt! Microsoft knows this - so I assume they'll address these concerns, and if they don't - there employees and executives must be smoking crack cocaine))).

But, what I'm getting at is this - is it safe for me to set up Bitlocker on the Enterprise edition/drive and let the Core edition/drive be as it is now? Is there a specific way I should go about doing this? If my concern on this is warranted - and it's a dangerous thing to try to do - which could have negative and unwanted consequences - than maybe I should just remove Enterprise, well if I should, then suggest that too. I like Bitlocker encryption for my more sensitive data - but I also like this Windows To Go feature as well. I would remove Enterprise if it's probably the best option. I am concerned of this too because I remember reading years ago that in reality having a dual boot setup of 2 editions of the same version of Windows (or just 2 editions of different versions) was/is actually something that isn't a good idea to have setup because it messes with the 2 versions of Windows somehow and drive C:, but I assume that as time has passed and technology has advanced maybe those issues that were authentic issues in the past might've been addressed with the new technology - but am unsure of this.

So, basically, the real question is - is dual booting these 2 editions of Windows safe in the new world of today with these new technologies - and if it is - is having the full Bitlocker functionality with Enterprise setup and having the Core OS setup as the main OS as well - safe?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 (core) Repair Install Errors

Mar 26, 2014

I currently have Windows 8.1 (core) on my HP laptop that originally came with Windows 8 (core). Recently I have had issues with Windows update and by searching forums I found the only thing I could do was a repair install. At first I was unable to find my product key from the packaging, but by using Belarc Advisor I was able to locate my product key. I downloaded the Windows 8 and 8.1 installations from the M$ website and when I put in my GENUINE key into windows 8 it says "This product key cannot be used to install a retail version of Windows 8".

I have even tried using a GENERIC key in both it keeps giving me "We can't connect right now."

-I my date and time are correct
-I can connect to the internet (multiple locations)
-antivirus, firewall, etc deactivated
-BITS is on and running
-cryptographic on and running

I am unable to do the windows 8.1 iso download trick and cannot find any forum that has this resolved.
