Restarted the laptop and pressed F2 to enter SETUP. Went to "BOOT" section and changed the boot order of the devices. Set the CD/DVD Reader as the first boot device and the Hard Drive as the second.
Downloaded and wrote the ISO / Image of MX-15_x64 Fusion (24 December 2015) to a DVD. Placed the DVD in the drive and restarted the computer. Booted up to MX-15 Fusion Desktop. Clicked on the network icon and selected my network and typed in the password. Connection was established. I clicked on the install-MX15 on the desktop and was off. I already have Windows7 installed on the first partition of the hard drive. I created 3 new (ext4) partitions from empty space on the drive. 1.) / called slash. 2.) /home and 3.) a swap partition. After the install was done, it asked if I wanted to install GRUB for both windows & linux and where to write it. I said Yes and chose the MBR. Just after that MX15-Linux restarted and paused for the DVD to be removed. I removed it and pressed enter. MX15-Linux restarted the machine and I was at the MX15 64bit desktop. Sound, video, usb mouse and all just worked out of the box. It was that easy. The only thing I had to configure was my epson wf-3540 printer. I didn't install any drivers, I just used CUPS. (( Common Unix Printing System)). Now, if I could stop messing it up!
MX15-Fusion and The Lenovo G560, Seem made for each other. MX runs beautifully on the Lenovo.
While I was in SETUP, I noticed Intel "Virtual" Technology, was disabled. I enabled it.
