    Yes, Yancek is on the right track. Many PC's have multi-layered hidden screens in the BIOS. For example, on Acer systems, one has to set up a Supervisor Password for the Firmware (BIOS and UEFI). Only when the Supervisor password is used upon next access to the BIOS (e.g., after the initial setup, you may have to re-access the BIOS but now using the Supervisor password). Then, more options are opened up for doing things like special one-time boot keys, and setting boot cycle to CSM Legacy mode.

    95% are the odds Legacy boot is supported - - you just have to find out how. You may need to access the original owners or technicians manual PDF via the PC makers website. Keep looking . . .
    Problem installing Ubuntu? . . Just get it "Preinstalled" (like you did for Windows!) . . http://linuxpreloaded.com/

    Thanks, I'll look more into that!
