While Lenovo Thinkcentre M92p only allow Red-Hat Linux besides Windows.


Unless you switch to legacy BIOS mode, which my M92p at work allows (soon to be my home workstation, thanks boss!!). From what I can tell, the M92p units now sold with Windows 8 still have a legacy BIOS option.

I must say, an Arch-based distro on a quad-core i5 with 8GB RAM is beyond bliss.
