SecurityBoost isnt configured

You mean Secure Boot. This is a bios setting that you may/may not have, look for it in there and enable it if it isn't, you may have to add a code, but that's your issue. Even publicl releases have a build number, you just don't see them usually.

Yes, you have the right version...is it in your bios? reboot and find out, i'm not sure what's exposed in your bios and what isn't...Did the laptop come with windows 8, or is it a windows 7 upgrade?

As I mentioned in your other thread, this issue can be caused by usual policy set in the system firmware and can typically be resolved through a firmware (BIOS/UEFI) update. With luck, that update resolved your issue. If not, you can post your make and model of system so that we can look into the firmware updates available.

lol its been updated for like 2 or 3 days....Its very nice. Much better. No problems. Love it. If you want it and you already have a PC that you bought windows 8 for, go to the store (the windows Store) and it should just be right there. I LOVE HOW I CAN MAKE MY DESKTOP BACKGROUND MY METRO BACKGROUND! :D  Such a smooth transition!

Good to hear, i totally agree on the background comment, such a small change, but it makes the OS feel so much more together...smallest change, but just about the best change in my opinion :)
