Linux Mint 17 on the Lenovo N585

During the weekend installed Linux Mint (Cinnamon 64 bits) on the GF's lappie a Lenovo N585 with 6 GB of RAM... Windows wwas giving her ea lot of headaches lately, so, why not have another Linux converse in the world?
Being a Lenovo, it wasn't pretty hard, just about everything worked out of the box, the way it should.
Only thing was, after the installation -I made that booting from a USB- it refused to boot, belching an error about boot manager.
The problem: UEFI, the solution: boot onto the BIOS (press the F2 key upon booting), and disable that, by setting the Boot Mode onto Legacy Support.
