I am really confused on what settings are required in the UEFI Bios to run recovery USB/ disks or Linux live CDs.
It all used to be so simple. The manufacturer helpdesk seems unaware that it supplies UEFI systems - so I am working blind. Have tried boot CDs and USBs but all have booted straight into Windows to date.
Perhaps there is a basic guide but I have not found one yet.
I don't wish to change settings I have no understanding of.
I have a Medion /Lenovo desktop with an AMI UEFI Bios (12 July 2012) and Aptio Setup.
The following seem relevant are supplied as enabled in "Bios":
Intel Rapid Startup Technology
Boot Select Mode [UEFI]
UEFI Hard Disk BBS Priorities - Boot Option #1 - Windows Boot Manager
Secure Boot - Secure Boot Mode [Standard]
What do these all mean and what effect do they have on how Windows 8 runs and how boot drives run?
