  • You won't need the boot disk from Lenovo. You will need a copy of a Linux distribution on either USB or CDROM. Go to and find one that you like. Download it and burn it to a bootable cd / usb and when you boot your laptop, hit whatever function key lets you use the alternate boot menu. Choose your device and let Linux boot and then install it on the harddrive.

    For instructions on making the bootable cd or usb , just google it.

    You can use any Linux distribution you want and install it pretty easily on your Laptop. There are hundreds of different Linux distributions, But I recommend you to try the following:

    Linux is really the powerful operating system. You can do almost everything you do on Windows (except full gaming experience) and all of that completely for free.

    Get used to it and you wont never switch back to Windows again.
