Lenovo N23 - Boot from Live CD??

I purchased a Lenovo N23 with Windows 10 (NOT a Chromebook). Turns out, Windows 10 is so slow on this device it's unusable! Pretty disappointing.


I wanted to try running Linux on it -- not necessarily reinstalling or dual booting, but at least running from a Live CD to be able to USE the thing. I've got an ISO image on a USB thumbdrive which I've confirmed works great with my other PCs.


But when I try to boot to it on this notebook (whether from Windows' Recovery Options screen, selecting the thumbdrive as the boot device -- OR pressing F1/F12 to select the device on boot), it just goes to a blank screen and sits there for a long time -- then eventually it reboots itself back into Windows.


Is there something Lenovo has done to lock down this system to prevent it from booting to another OS? I'm pretty angry about this whole situation, I spent nearly $300 and I can't use this machine at all.
