Exactly, this is a really interesting topic.
For a friend, I want to install Sabayon Daily (KDE 64bit) on his brand new notebook, shipped with Windows 8 and UEFI and Secure Boot enabled. With this settings in BIOS, the USB memory stick with Sabayon was rejected due to system policy. It was not possible to boot from.
Then, after I have set to 'UEFI' in BIOS, but disabled 'Secure Boot', I could boot from USB memory stick. The problem is, that Windows 8 does not boot with disabled 'Secure Boot', and Sabayon does not boot from USB with enabled 'Secure Boot'.
So, I'd appreciate a 'Howto install Sabayon on a Windows 8 machine with possible Dual boot after'.
Thanks to those, who know.
