    I've got a Windows 7 running, but I'm trying to install a Linux Mint on this Laptop. Yes, it should bootup automatically, but it's not. I'm new to 7, so I'm having dificulty even getting to find BIOS. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Getting to the BIOS has nothing to do with the version of Windows installed. The initial boot screen should tell you what key to press to enter the BIOS or Setup.

    Yes, of course. A while after I posted that I wondered what I was thinking. :eek:
