A) F2 at logo to enter BIOS setup. B) Enable USB legacy emulation. C) Boot sequence: USB, CD/DVD, HDD/SSD. C) Installed Linux Mint 18.1 Serena via DVD to take up all HDD space. D) Happy to say that everything on your compatibility list checks out OK except bluetooth as laptop did not come with this option.

Things changed afterwards: Replaced network-manager with wicd (prefer interface), replaced rhythmbox with audacious (I'm kinda old school and like that old winamp look), and replaced xplayer with vlc.

Gotta love linux Mint, Eric
