Lenovo Z585 won't boot to DVD - skips straight to Windows

2013-05-24, 4:25 AM

Hello, I just got a new IdeaPad Z585 from newegg, and I can't figure out how to boot to a disc in the DVD tray.

 

I have already tried opening the BIOS and changing the boot order, as well as simply going straight to the boot menu. I have tried with UEFI both enabled and disabled, as well as Secure Boot both enabled and disabled. No matter what I try, it will not boot into any DVD.

 

I'm trying to install Linux, and tried various discs and distributions of that. When none even reached GRUB, I tried a Windows 7 install disc, and even that is ignored.

 

What do I do?

Solved! See the solution

Hi
The secureboot and uefi have to be disabled simaltaneously. You can try if you haven't.
Also, could you try pressing the novo button to power on your laptop. The novo button is the small one key reocovery button next to the power button. Then access boot menu a see if it helps.

Ah, you're right. I thought I had tried it with both disabled at the same time, but double checking that appears to have fixed it, thank you.
