I have an HP Pavilion. HP upgraded the BIOS two days ago. Today I updated from Windows 8 to 8.1. On the lower right of the screen there is a message that reads: "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured correctly. Build 9600".
How do we get rid of this message and why is this happening? I also upgraded a Surface device and this did not happen; thus I am thinking it is an HP issue. Anyone, please help.

I tried your suggestion and downloaded the latest BIOS version, installed it and the problem... the "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configured correctly Build 9600" message is still on the lower right hand side of the desktop.
Now, isn't about time that a fix gets published so we can get rid of the message.
Any and everyone's help will be appreciated. Thanks...

Installed the new BIOS and the problem (watermark message) continues. Reverted back to the old BIOS and the problem continues. Doesn't anyone from HP and/or Microsoft ever look at these forums and answer a simple question?

I am posting this for everyone in this thread as it seems to be a growing concern. Try the following steps and it should resolve your issue.
1. restart your computer
2. enter your bios f10
3. go to security
4. go to secure boot configuration
5. f10 to continue
6. turn off legacy support and enable secure boot
7. save changes and exit
I am including a link to an HP Support document called "BIOS Setup Utility Information and Menu Options" below it will guide you through the bios setup and menu.

***TIP : If you setup a password in your BIOS and forget it I cannot help you reset it. There are threads here that people are assisting with that but it is not something I am able to provide support for.
Please feel free to re-post with whether or not this resolved your issue.

thank you; but i restarted my pavilion and while it was in the process of restarting i hit the f10 key several times... nothing happened; it went right to the windows 8.1 start screen. then i tried it again and hit fn f10 repeatedly as it was restarting... again, it went right into windows. how can we access the bios if the computer simply by-passes everything and goes into the windows os? Shouldn't there be a quick fix for those of us who are semi literate? We purchase a machine that should work without messages... we upgrade to os that should work... why all this hassle?

Went back to the drawing board and entered the BIOS. First of all it flashes incesantly and it is almost hell to read it! Now, under the security tab... the only thing that appears is something to the effect of "turn admin password on/off".
C'mon... a simple thing should not be so complicated.
I tried to install the new BIOS update and it just will not take... it goes through the motions; but it seems to be the same and the annoying message is still on the desktop. Seriously... is there a solution that really works? If so, please help... even if it is a way to cover the message with a picture!!!
