    Fedora 17 on Lenovo G580

    I'm trying to install Linux on my computer but am having some trouble. My computer is a brand new Lenovo G580 laptop. I can't access the bios to start up the CD so I have no idea what to do. I've google searched a lot and didn't find anything useful. I've tried using "F1" "F2" and "Fn+F1" Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Re: Fedora 17 on Lenovo G580

    According to the Lenovo G580 user manual, pressing "F2" during display of the logo should enter the BIOS

    Where I found the manual:
    http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/....0_english.pdf

    From page 30
    For details about how to set the password, see the Help to the right of the
    screen in the BIOS setup utility.
    Note: To enter BIOS setup utility, press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while
    the computer is starting up
    .

    @OP
    Windows 8 doesn't do a complete shutdown when you do a restart. It skips the UEFI or BIOS part.
