Re: Window 7 boot issue

Hi,

 

Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu, then select f10 to enter the Bios Menu.   Use the arrow keys to select System Configuration, select Boot Options and hit enter.

 

You need to set Secure Boot to Disabled and Legacy Support to Enabled.

 

Then press f10, select to Save the changes and hit enter.

 

Next, you may get an on-screen prompt to enter a 4 digit number displayed on the screen - do so and hit enter.

 

You should now be able to boot from the Windows 7 installation disc the boot options menu ( f9 ) at start-up.

 

Regards,
