I am using a Sony Vaio 64 bit laptop running on Windows 7 Home Basic.

I plan to upgrade it to Windows 8. I ran the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant. It says that though my laptop supports Windows 8, Secure Boot is not compatible with my PC.

Can I go ahead and install Windows 8? What will happen without Secure Boot?
 
Hi,

yes you can. Secure boot is a feature enabled with a Uefi bios. If you don't have a Uefi bios then it isn't used. It basically stops rogue software starting up with windows and windows 8 runs fine without it.
