I recently bought a ThinkPad e320 to use as a linux-only machine. As it has no cd/dvd I created a USB boot drive using the usual methods (dd if=path/image_name.iso of=device) and stuck it into the machine. I changed the boot order and also tried booting from the BIOS (ie hit Enter at boot time, then F12 and I choose the USB drive, which it recognizes). But it doesn't work.
I tried setting the UEFI stuff in the BIOS to "Legacy" but still no luck.
Can anyone help me with what I'm missing? I know i can get linux on there somehow (my preference is centos as i wanna learn RHEL) as i found (and posted in) this thread:
(won't let me post url, but it's called "Reload this Page [SOLVED] Installation on a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E320 (F15) "
(sorry for crossposting, i'm a little desperate as i just dropped good money on this thing and didn't expect this whole uefi issues - silly me!).
So, anyone have any pointers? Have I made my boot media wrongly? I was following this:
Help me Fedora-wan, you're my only hope!
Thanks in advance,
