Cant install Linux-Ubuntu on ideapad N581

I have an Ideapad N581 that I am having issues with when booting. I have installed a Kingston 120gig SATA drive and once the POST times out the computer boots from. The issue I believe is the BIOS is not recgognizing the drive right away. The computer stays in POST for about 5 minutes and then eventually finds the SSD and Boots to windows 10. I have seen posts that other users with this laptop have been successful in installing an SSD. What am I missing? I have looked for a BIOS update and have not been able to find one that is newer than my 2013 update. Please help...


Admin note; subject edited, corrected system type.
