Got a new dell laptop, came with Windows 10. My older computer I could press f2 to change boot order so it would first go to cd drive. This new computer has UEFI and I'm not sure how to accomplish this. I am only going to us this computer for Linux, so no partitions to worry over. I'm a total newbee to unix and mint. Tried Libre Office and am hooked. Want to make friends with Mint. Made an ISO disk for Mint 17.3, just don''t know how to safely get it loaded. Thanks

Since windows will be erased you can change the BIOS from UEFI to legacy and disable secure boot. This should allow you to install any distribution.
