hi Mahmoud thanks for the reply,its just that this new ''secure boot on win 8'' seems to have locked out linux users attempting a dual boot,ive read various work rounds none of which are pretty,can you confirm easybcd has been tested with win 8 and linux(please dont take this as being rude) as i will have to use a recovery (primary) partition to install win 8 alongside win 7, and with my existing linux kubuntu and linux lubuntu partitions, so effectively i would be quad booting,can you see any problems and what kind of menu will appear.....thanks...phil...

Secure boot is only enforced on ARM machines.
