I have a new in box Lenovo h30-05 PC that I planned on installing FreePBX distro on. I have had success with the exact same model a few weeks ago, but I am now ready to throw this current machine out of the window!
Let me begin:
I have disabled secure boot, enabled CMS, stated to boot legacy only, and changed the boot order to make the hard drive last. I have tried booting from 2 bootable CDs (Windows 7 and FreePBX Distro) which definitely work on other machines and also a USB FreePBX Distro which worked on a different computer just fine. Anytime I let it boot or if I manually select the device to boot, the screen goes back, the system powers off and on, and I am back at the Lenovo splash screen. It basically boot loops over and over to no avail.
I have defaulted the bios settings and changed them about 20 times now with the same results. I have also taken the CMOS battery out for 15 minutes, cleared the CMOS via the jumper, and I am still getting the same results.
Can someone possibly tell me what may be happening and why I cant boot any legacy device? It has Windows 10 preloaded on it but since Ive changed all of the above, it will no longer boot even when re enabling secure boot.
Thanks to any and all suggestions/solutions!
