Windows 8 introduces a new requirement for PC manufacturers (OEMs) that may require modifications to your OS deployment infrastructure. That requirement ensures that all Windows 8 systems are shipped with their BIOS in UEFI Mode and Secure Boot enabled.
When the PC starts, the firmware checks the signature of each piece of boot software, including firmware drivers (Option ROMs) and the operating system.
The following features are planned to be implemented in future versions:
Full support for Windows 8
Ability to encrypt Windows system partitions/drives on UEFI-based computers (GPT)
