Ideapad U510 - Changing Boot Order

Hi!

 

I received a U510 for Christmas and I want to perform a fresh install of Windows 8 via USB.

 

Whenever I reboot the machine, at the LENOVO screen, I press F12 but no bootmenu appears. There is no option in entering the BIOS either.

 

What can I do to boot off of USB? I tried F2, F10, F12....please help!!

Never mind...I figured it out.

 

I hooked up an external keyboard, Enabled Legacy boot.

 

 

F2 is BIOS

 

F12 is Boot Menu.

I'll try F2 - when I enter F12 I ony get to choose between Windows Boot (which launches normally into windows) and a selection for the EFI Network ipv4 and another for ipv6 and neither did anything. I need to change to boot from the CD. Hopefully F2 will work.
