[Bug 1344504] Re: utopic .iso won't boot to do an install.


jerrylamos, as per http://download.lenovo.com/express/ddfm.html an update to your BIOS is available (5CKT77A). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate does it change anything?  If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report. As well, you don't have to create a new
bug report.
