Supporting (U)EFI does not require SecureBoot support...

we wont support SecureBoot for Mga3, and there is no rush considering
a lot of changes is still happening on several fronts...

I will try to see if I can fix the UEFI part for ~beta3, but no promises 

And for people thinking of Windows 8 dual boot... Win8 does not 
_require_ SecureBoot either... (only the overprized RT does)

And personally, I dont think we should ever bother with the SecureBoot 
crap as its flawed in so many ways...
