Just did a / update on my Lenovo E565 laptop (mine was rather old and there have been security-related updates in the mean time).

Least shitty option for that seems to be to burn their DOS-based bootable CD-ROM on a disc and boot from that. Only works if you set "UEFI/Legacy Boot" to "UEFI only" in the BIOS/UEFI menu before, though.

Simply dd'ing the image to a USB drive won't work, search for "geteltorito" if you want that. It's a little more work, though.
