You don't have to change anything on these laptops. But it is a good tip
that when installing from external cd/dvdrom, if it first does not work,
change usb port and try again.
I changed back the BIOS to AHCI. I was previously plugged into the top
left USB port I.e. the one on the left hand side closes to the monitor
or back side.
When lenovo's external CDROM/DVD is plugged into this port, I am unable
to install linux in general or other OS's. Once I plug it into any of
the other USB ports bottom left or right, it works perfectly.

Use external CD/DVD ROM, just ensure to plug it into the right port
