This post is to assist those in the future that possibly encounter the same error as myself using the same setup...
Initially I inserted the bootable usb, reset the computer, then pressed F12 as soon as the Lenovo logo displayed, and received the following error: "Load Error - Boot Error"
Enter the BIOS setup. Change Boot Mode to UEFI (not Both, not Legacy Only). Change CMS to disabled. Change boot speed to Diagnostics (not fast boot).
