Installing Qubes OS on P51 Lenovo ThinkPad

im trying to install Qubes OS on my P51 Lenovo ThinkPad laptop but when I try boot from the installation media the boot menu looks like it just refreshes. When I press enter on my installation media the screen goes black for a second and then the boot menu reappears and this will happen every time I select my installation media drive. I know the installation media drive is good because ive installed Qubes with this same drive on other laptops. I’ve verified the image file, ran a full diagnostic test on the P51 laptop and everything is good. Not sure what else to do, can anyone help?

Do you have UEFI enabled in BIOS?
Maybe it’s this issue with legacy BIOS install:
