Secure Boot and MickySoft's attempt to exclude Linux has been a topic in 
the Linux community for awhile, as some OEMs have not provided a way to 
turn off the contemptuous underhanded menouver by the "evil empire". I 
can't say for sure if all of the Lenovo 'puters provides the ability to 
turn it off via the CMOS setup, but the "Z" series laptops do for sure. 
I recently removed the "joke" from MickySoft, 'Bloze 8, and installed 
openSuSE 12.2 with no problems! There are 2 switches in the CMOS you 
have to change to "legacy" and you're all set.
