Installer doing weird things

So here’s the thing, I had installed tumbleweed before with no problems.
This time after wiping my (sata)ssd i insert the usb to start the installation.
While the installer loads a screen pops up telling me that i need to download the kernel to proceed.
What that did is (for some reason) it copied my iso to a new partition on the ssd.
After that when reaching the partitioning section the ssd was not a choice.
I proceeded to the expert partitioner where i saw my ssd with a partition housing the copy of the iso.
I went a ahead and gave instructions to delete the partition and create the proper partitions needed.
Now mind you i booted from my usb stick initialy.
When reaching the point where the install begun an error popped saying that the partition of the iso cannot be deleted since it is busy.
Errors then followed for the rest of the partition creations saying that the command used to create them has also failed.
I tried this multiple times wiping my hard drive with a bios tool and making sure that it was empty each time.
Same error persisted.
From what i understand based on the way the process behaves it tries to boot from usb, realizes there is no kernel :sarcastic: and therefore proceeds to copy the iso to the drive and boot from there.

Any help will be appreciated, pictures will be posted when i get home if needed

How did you create the USB? Only proper way is to do a pure unaltered copy to the device not a partition. dd cp or if in Windows a copy that does not alter the boot code, since the iso is a boot ready image.

I would force the installer to use the kernel on the USB by disabling networking, disconnecting the ethernet cable and/or disabling wireless connectivity. Also if your USB doesn’t have the latest snapshot 20200214, I’d upgrade it first.

By default,
The installer won’t install into an existing partition.
If the installer detects an existing installed OS (partition, with boot files) it may offer to upgrade the existing OS.

You should understand that you should create <free space> by deleting any partitions not being used for an existing operating system.

When you installer then looks at your disk, it’ll see the free space and propose a layout filling that free space.
Since this is a brand new install, I’d recommend you start over, boot to a DVD or LiveCD and run fdisk to remove partitions.
