What I have heard about Secure Boot interfering with Windows startup
has been due entirely to user incompetence. It can see it as possible
given the chain of trust in the Windows 8 startup sequence but I would
like to see verifiable steps to reproduce the problem. I don't buy into
"a friend of mine said he had this problem" reports.
