    Default Venue 8 Pro Owner's Lounge

    Just got a Venue 8 Pro. First thing I noticed was the desktop has a "SecureBoot isn't configured correctly" watermark. I also saw a BIOS update on Dell's site. Installing that now to see if it addresses that... Perhaps they were holding some shipments to resolve that?

    Edit: BIOS update doesn't appear to get rid of that watermark...

    Once enabled, you may have to wait a day or two for the secure boot message to go away.

    I'll see if mine has the same problem when I get home. You might need to access the BIOS to get rid of it.

    For those who wondered- yes this has a full USB port. I had a USB OTG adapter handy, and mouse/keyboard/accessories all work just fine.

    let us know how much if the 32GB is usable & how much is used / free.

    I have asked this 2 times now & have gotten 2 different answers... The first said 28 free with the OS + Office installed, the next said 30GB free with the OS + Office installed. None of the 2 seemed right or even possible either...

    It is a bit sad that Dell's own sales support knows so little about what they are even selling.

    I ordered the 32GB with Stylus & I plan to use a 64GB MicroSD for most of my data & programs.

    The "SecureBoot isn't configured correctly" is a huge problem for most Dell computers with Windows 8.1. You can read more about it by going to Windows 8.1 Pro Update Causing "SecureBoot isn't configured correctly" Watermark - Windows 8 - Software & Operating Systems - Dell Community

    The warning doesn't mean there's something wrong with your tablet or computer.

    Thanks for starting the owner's lounge.

    That's awesome, thanks for the info. If you have the connector it would be great to see if the Dell V8P can push USB to HDMI, thanks! Can wait to receive mine.
