Can't boot from disk or USB on Ideapad Z710

2014-10-26, 10:38 AM

I'm trying to Install Debian GNU/Linux on my Windows 8 Ideapad Z710, and I can't even get my laptop to boot from external media. From the InsydeH20 Setup Utility, I've so far disabled Secure Boot, set Boot Mode to UEFI, enabled USB Boot, enabled PXE Boot to LAN, and set my EFI boot order to 1) EFI Network 0 for IPv4, 2) EFI Network 0 for IPv6, then 3) Windows Boot Manager (no other options). I'm not actually trying to boot from a network, I just want to boot from the onboard DVD drive or my USB DVD drive. When I boot with these settings, I get the error: EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (...) boot failed, then a similar one for IPv6, then it boots to Windows. Why can't I boot from DVD or USB?

 

Another thing I've tried is setting Boot Mode to Legacy Support and Boot Priority to Legacy First (with Secure Boot disabled) which results in my laptop booting to straight to Windows even when USB ODD is first in the boot order.

 

Please tell me how to boot to a Linux DVD or USB on this machine! This was major purchase for me, and if I can't install Linux on it, this laptop is totally useless for me. Please respond.

Solved! See the solution

Please can anyone help? I just want to boot from a USB or DVD. Is it possible on this machine? I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get this to work.

Try this:

1. Secure Boot disabled.

2. Set Boot Mode to Legacy Support

3. Boot Priority to Legacy First

4. Save and Exit.

5. Shut down computer.

6. Insert your pendrive into usb.

7. Press Novo button.

8. Select Boot menu

9. Select your pendrive and press Enter key.

 

Note: USB boot must be enabled.

I have done so, and these steps worked for me. Previously, I only knew to access the boot options by holding Fn-F2. You have my thanks!

This worked for me:

Start the computer. When the Lenovo logo comes up, immediately press Fn-F12; on the boot sequence menu, select the optical drive as the first boot-up device.

 Thank you for this information. I had the same problem that my DVD drive not was recognized.

 

Today i have installed windows 10pro all the drivers  were recognized, the installation works perfectly.

 

I had a big problem with the original Windows 8.1 installation,  With the update Wuauserv windows update problem. 

 

 Searched and searched again found no working solution on the Internet that helped.

 

I'M happy with the new installation. 

 

Tank you for the tip.
