  10. [SOLVED] Re: Dual Boot UEFI problems Lenovo g585

    Well, I settled on using the secondary boot key to get to windows.

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Dual Boot UEFI problems Lenovo g585

    That helps some. I read your linked page and it brings up an idea I will try. Someone claimed there are more options available once you put in an adminstrator password in the BIOS.
