- Turn off
- Insert Ubuntu DVD. In my case USB boot up wouldn't work
- Turn on keeping F2 key pressed (No Fn, just F2)). The BIOS/UEFI firmware screen shows up
- From Advanced/System Configuration select the "CSM boot" option
- From Main/Boot order put DVD/USB on top (before HDD)
- Save changes and exit
- Ubuntu DVD should take over allowing to wipe out everything from the hard disk and installing the new OS. If you run into problems you can try installing first using the "UEFI boot" option however you will still need to switch to "CSM boot" and reinstall Ubuntu because otherwise the OS won't come up but instead you will see the message "Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device"
- Linux rocks
