    Cannot presented an UEFI Setup option in my Boot Selection


    Here: http://communities.intel.com/communi...ng-secure-boot

    Somewhere in that link it says:

    During POST enter “BIOS Boot Selector Menu” by pressing F7

    Well guess what?

    Intel says: <F7> No uefi setup option in boot selection
    Others say: <F8> No uefi setup option in boot selection
    I say: <F12> No uefi setup option in boot selection

    Why on earth nothing works for me?


    p.s: Lenovo Z580, my brand new laptop that is, its UEFI based and vymrdal's ISO from MSDN is also created to be installed as an UEFI Install.
