Not sure if it has to do with your problem or machine specifically, but a bunch of Lenovos that came my way had a problem with linux that required BOTH secureboot to be off and IMOUU to be turned off or set to legacy before any type of bootloader would work (that wasn't the installed windows 8 version).
