I've just bought a Lenovo G50 30, and I'm planning to install Linux on it. I don't want to boot it to Linux so that I can claim a refund on the Windows licence. When I boot the laptop, it doesn't seem to give me an opportunity to go into the biops settings so that I can change the boot sequence to boot from the Linux installation CD - how can I do this?

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Can you try the following:
1. Boot into the BIOS via the UEFI Firmware Settings or by pressing the OneKey Recovery button (while the computer is turned off).
2. Once in the BIOS, set the following settings (if applicable) to boot from a Linux installation disc.
Secure Boot = Disabled
Boot Mode = Legacy
Boot Priority = Legacy First
OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS or Disabled
Please backup all important files and create a recovery drive before making changes to the HDD.
