Have you disabled Secure-Boot?

Can you confirm those settings in BIOS / Lenovo Setup Utility:

Security -> Secure boot: disabled

Boot -> Boot mode: UEFI

Rufus has a bunch of options that sometimes lead users astray...


To simplify: copy the contents of the ISO - using Windows Explorer, 7 zip, loop mount in Linux, or your favorite ISO/archiving tool - to a FAT32-formatted flash drive.


That should do it if you're booting in UEFI mode.  Ubuntu should not require turning off secure boot, but it won't hurt.
