I have a Lenovo flex-3 1130 laptop running Windows 10. 

I figured I would like to dual boot with Lubuntu 14.04, my favorite Linux.

 

I restarted the computer while holding down the shift button.

It did access the usual Windows recovery screen but when I click on the USB boot option, it says that the system doesn't have a USB boot ability.

 

Does anyone know, is there a workaround or am I stuck with what I have?

I'd appreciate any info, thanks.

 You probably need to disable Secure Boot in the UEFI/BIOS.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Hey Niweg,

                 

                  I tried disabling secure boot. The Lenovo bios will always override that change on reboot. There doesn't seem to be anyway around it. Thanks for the pointer, anyhow. Take care.
