Hi !

Since installing Fedora 20 on a Windows 8.1 machine, and dual-booting it, when I start Fedora, I get an error about EFI kernel signature. The error is as follows and is right before the Fedora plymouth splash screen: EFI: Problem loading in-kernel X.509 certificate (-129). To fix that, I saw that there was a shim.efi file at /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/shim.efi. How do you use shim?

Nothing happened there... no solution at all.

I know there is no solution at the moment. I just pointed out the existed bug report. When a bug report exists, the developers will handle this. We are not kernel developers here. :)

Does this happen with anyone else here? There doesn't seem to be many questions about this :).
