Install Fedora on UEFI Laptop w/o biosboot partition

Hi, I'm trying to install Fedora on a new ThinkPad T440s with an UEFI.

I formatted the SSD with a GPT and booted a netinstall USB-Stick. After partitioning, it gives an error and says

"Your BIOS-based system needs a special partition to boot from a GPT disk label. To continue, please create a 1MB 'biosboot' type partition."

My question is: Why??

What is the "BIOS-based system"? The laptop? I doubt that, since it has an UEFI. Fedora? So I can't use it w/o the biosboot partition?

Could someone clarify this?
