    Yes, I'm having to get use to secure boot. Had to learn how to reuse imaging software in light of secure boot. Conflicts resulting from the changing of hardware doesn't surprise me.

    This seems like unneeded complexity... Can you re-enable it after you've done the upgrades?

    Secure boot can´t be re-enabled if the hardware firmware doesn´t support UEFI.

    mSATA cache systems, UEFI, Secure boot, Windows 8... all of these have added unneeded complexity.
