I think I read in your book that, when the statement "Secure Boot isn't compatible with your PC", you said it was OK to continue install and ignore it, that it was not necessary. Is that right? If so, where is it in the book; I cannot now find it. My computer says the same thing, and am wondering if it really is OK to continue install.

Found this about Secure Boot

Put simply it only applies to PC's with newer UEFI type BIOS and prevents malware in the boot sector area of hard disks. If you have older type BIOS then it will install without problem. Basically nothing to worry about.
