Try This.

The problem is related to secure-boot. Here is what you need to do:

This error indicates that it is related to Secure Boot which is a new security feature with Windows 8. Once you disable Secure Boot, hopeful the problem will go away.

  1. Reboot the notebook and press F10 until the BIOS loads.
  2. Check both the "boot options" and "secure boot configuration" sections for the ability to disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot Support.
  3. Disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot Support.
  4. Save the changes and reboot the notebook.
  5. Verify whether the issue is resolved and let me know.
