unable to install Redhat Linux 6.3 on Lenovo y510p (4th Gen intel i7 proc)

Could anyone please help me out for the issue mentioned in summary.
I have Lenovo Y510p laptop with 4th gen intel i7 processor, 8gb ram, 1tb hardsisk. I am trying to configure dual boot with windows 8 and rhel 6.3 but I am unable to do so.
It works on other old model laptops. I have tried almost all options available like disabling secure boot, putting bios to compatible mode etc...

Please help!!!!!

you are aware that the current RHEL6 is RHEL 6.4 and not 6.3

also RedHat Eneteprise Linux is NOT FREE
you really DO NEED to buy the required support contract
( And if you have to ask then the standard 1 year is what you need )

-- for a single Desktop install

mind you RHEL is a SERVER class OS
it was NEVER designed for use on a laptop

that said
it will mostly run mostly well on most laptops
-- notice the mostly most part
not all laptop hardware is supported !!!!
somethings like a cup/gpu combo are NOT supported
so you might NOT have a GUI
you might have a TEXT ONLY install
no desktop GUI
no seeing photos
no videos
only typing in and reading text ONLY

you might not have any sound if the gui works
the mouse pad may or might not work

check with redhat for SUPPORTED hardware

also check with redhat for support on a win8 laptop with MS's version of "secureboot"
you might NOT be able to dual boot with win8
do to demands made by Microsoft

you might ? have to buy a second laptop to install redhat on
( you can thank Microsoft for that )

and last but not least
read the RHEL 6.4 install guide

now if you are NOT going to buy the REQUIRED support contract , then DO NOT use RHEL!!!

instead install the FREE rebuild of redhat
CentOS 6.4 or ScientificLinux 6.4
