Stuck on secure boot limbo on my Ideapad Y700 after installing SteamOS/Linux

Hello, I've been trying to gain access into my laptop after installing SteamOS for awhile now, but now I'm in this sort of secure boot loop. I'll go step by step in what happened.

 

May laptop was using Windows 10 prior to this problem

 

1. I installed the SteamOS files and then unpacked them into a USB flash drive

 

2. I went into the BIOS by Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Restart Now and then entered firmware. There I disabled secure boot.

 

3. I then booted the USB and installed SteamOS. After that, I restarted the laptop and went back into the bios and put secure boot back to enabled.

 

4. Now I'm unable to boot my hard drive or USB. Every time I try to boot up, it says something along the lines of "Unable to boot because of secure boot policy".

 

How do I get out of this limbo?

Go back into the BIOS and leave Secure Boot disabled since it looks like SteamOS is not compatible with Secure boot
