For earlier in the thread:

"Hmm, I tried that workaround I think on my Lenovo T520 with BIOS 1.29,
and it didn't help.  I.E. point (1.) from the link referenced here:"
You can see the boot flag is set to no avail in the disk
and parted output below:

I've confirmed that installing with the "nogpt" flag is OK.
