My new laptop unable to run windows 8 and Linux OS

I bought a new Toshiba - Satellite 15.6" Laptop - 4GB Memory - 320GB Hard Drive – Windows 8  at Best Buy on 2/25/2013.

 

When I inserted Linux installation disk in, the laptop could not boot. Please show me how to correct this matter because I need a laptop able to run Windows 8 and Linux OS.

Not sure of the actual procedure to disable it, but it probably has Secure Boot set in UEFI. Not sure if you can disable it or not on the laptop. Google "Linux and UEFI Secure Boot" for reading material.
