Modern laptops (like Ideapads, Thinkpads) come with UEFI technology. Means the BIOS of the computer doesn't work the way it has to. Instead, it is modified by the OEM by having a special program (firmware) above the traditional BIOS. This gives a lot of additional functionality and ease to the user for some situations and at the same time also restricts some functionality which a normal BIOS does. So to get the native functionality of the BIOS, there will be an option called "LEGACY SUPPORT" in the bios settings. Enabling this changes the BIOS to normal mode and you can do what ever you want. Also don't forget to change the priority to LEGACY FIRST.
