I am trying to install tumbleweed on a Lenovo T14 Gen 3 with SSD, starting from a factory windows installation. I am booting from a USB network image and using an ethernet network connection.
I want to remove windows entirely and use the entire disk, with separate partitions for /home and swap.
The installation spins for >8 hours on the “Preparing disks…” step.
When I reboot without the USB, there is still some kind of Windows recovery utility.
It’s been awhile (3-4 years) since I have done an install. For this installation, I needed to disable secure boot in the BIOS to get this far, which was different.
How do I troubleshoot this further?
