Did you try blacklisting the ideapad_laptop module?

This can be done by executing

echo blacklist ideapad_laptop >> /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf

and then rebooting

or by adding

modprobe.blacklist=ideapad_laptop

as a kernel parameter in your grub config (this is probably the prefered way to use on the installation media so that you have wifi during installation: when grub is displayed, edit the boot entry and add the parameter. Then boot using that editted entry.)
