I had some significant issues when attempting to install Linux on the Ideapad 320, but finally discovered a solution.
I updated the BIOS via the pre installed Windows 10, disabled secure boot, and set it to legacy first.
I tried about eleven distros before I found one that would not only boot, but also recognise the touchpad and wireless card.
Debian was my preference, but it was a hassle to get the touchpad and wireless working.
CentOS 7 - full install iso was the saviour.
I needed to have a USB mouse plugged in pre boot for the touchpad to be recognised, but apart from that, the install was flawless.
Anyone having issues with the Ideapad might want to try this method, it was the only one that worked for me without any post install jiggery pokery.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet ivrs_ioapic=00:14.0 splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="ivrs_ioapic=00:02.0 iommu=calgary amdgpu.dc=0"
I added those codes in /etc/default/grub. This could be bit different, depends on your hardware and output message. I have Ideapad 320-17AST, after changing the parameters, My computer goes like the wind.
