      Question

      After updatinging via windows store to Windows 8.1  I get the watermark:

      "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured correctly Build 9600"

      I've gone to the BIOS, tried enabling secure boot, disabling, restoring factory keys but nothing solves the problem.

      The command (administrator windows powershell) Confirm-SecureBootUEFI returns false.

       

      Affected Configurations

      The above symptom is associated with, but not limited to, the following systems:

      • Lenovo G580

       

      Applies to
      • Microsoft Windows 8.1

       

      Solution

      There may be multiple ways to resolve this.  Here are two possible approaches:

       Solution 1

      Microsoft has released a KB tip for this issue. Check it out here: 

      Update removes the "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured correctly" watermark in Windows 8.1 and ...

      Solution 2

      1. Do a full shutdown - (hold shift while selecting shutdown)
      2. Restart and enter BIOS (F1).
      3. Go to Security > SecureBoot > enable it.
        Note: This will also disable CSM and set unit for UEFI Only startup. These are required for SecureBoot to work.

      Solution 3

      Community members have indicated succcess with the following proceedure:

      1. Tap the windows button and search for "startup"
      2. Click Change advanced startup options
      3. Under "Advanced startup" click Restart now
      4. Click Troubleshoot
      5. Click Advanced options
      6. Click UEFI firmware settings

      At this point you should see the bios/uefi configuration page:

      1. Go to "security" and then "reset to setup mode"
      2. Then go to "exit" and then "exit saving changes"

      Once back in windows, repeat all the steps 1 to 6 and then in the bios screen:

      1. Go again to "security" and this time select "restore factory keys"
      2. Then go to "exit" and then "exit saving changes"
