+ - Linux Developer Working on Windows 8 Secure Boot Bypass->

hypnosec (2231454) writes "Windows 8 is going to be equipped with a secure boot technology from Microsoft dubbed Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) that will effectively lockup the operating system tightly and will prevent users from installing other operating system – be it Linux or Windows XP, Windows 7 and as a matter of fact another instance of Windows 8. This is definitely not good news and there has been already a lot of talk going on about the secure boot option of Windows 8. To bypass this, James Bottomley, chair at Linux Foundation's Technical Advisory Board has made public Intel Tianocore UEFI boot image along with some code. Developers can use this to get around the secure boot option of Windows 8."
