    I install
    change language to English UK and do updates
    Copy files over
    run my bash programme
    Tweak change some programme and system settings.
    It takes less than an hour usually.

  6. Whenever I am installing Ubuntu I recieve an error when you choose the time zone part. The message says"The ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI5 (0,0,0) (sda) failed." My laptop is only 1 year old and it is a high end gaming laptop, so I know it can handle it. There is no other OS on my laptop, so i need help getting this to work so it's not an expensive paperweight.
