If possible post a Speccy Link using these directions.  If you can't do that please try to give specific Specifications of the pc, and the Model number if possible.

Hi computerbroken,

Can you please provide as much detail as possible on the problem you are having.

Has this computer successfully booted with Linux Mint since you installed it? If not, did you successfully boot the computer using the Linux Mint install media before you installed the operating system?

The "system setup" you are referring to cannot be part of the Linux installation, as you say it "worked in Win 10." So if it is not part of Windows, I would presume it relates to your computer's BIOS.

@pcpunk, will this suffice? https://www.cnet.com/uk/products/lenovo-ideapad-u310/specs/

Sorry guys, did not have time to read the link.  Al's questions are right on target as usual.  A couple of more questions though:

 

1. Did you Verify the Checksum of the iso before creating Install Media?  This is very important and the first thing to do. 

 

2. Where was the OS Installed to, the SSD or HDD?

 

3. Where did you choose to install the boot loader?

 

4. Where did you download the iso from?

Use Rufus or YUMI to create the bootable USB, you can't just simply copy the Mint ISO there.....
