Has any body had this same problem? Was trying to install Linux and it would always go back to Windows 7 OS.

Thanks Al K9FW

Which distro? Are you setting up dual boot (grub)?

Start the computer and watch the screen carefully for something like "Press F10 for setup".  Restart the computer, press the appropriate key and see if "Boot Virus protection" is enabled.  If so, disable it.  Be sure to save the change when exiting.  Then reinstall Linux.

I'll endorse this. I never build dual boots- but if the MBR is locked out by the bios you'll never get GRUB installed.
