If you don't want your boards to be Windows 8 certified, then you are fine. Otherwise, you have to follow their guidelines, which I don't think requires paying them any money if you want to run Windows 8. Also, as these are "your own boards", you control the BIOS, so you don't even have to implement UEFI, or, if you do, you can control what keys are installed in the BIOS by default. So I don't understand the issue here, please explain. greg k-h
