Hi kukel21, and welcome to the forum.

Have you tried installing whilst connected to your router via an ethernet cable .. in case the system is attempting to download a new version of GRUB during the install ?



If that's not the problem, can you boot to the LiveUSB/LiveDVD and post the output from these 4 commands
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
and
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
blkid
and
Code: [Select]
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "UEFI Mode" || echo "Legacy BIOS mode"

Okay have you tried instead of formatting the partitions, firing up GParted from the LiveUSB and creating a new GPT partition table on the drive.
(be aware this will entirely wipe the drive)

Once you've created the new partition table, and there are NO partitions on the drive, close GPArted, and THEN run the installer from the desktop icon.

Hi kukel21,

It would be best to post the wifi issue in the Networking section. That way other people having a similar issue, or who might have a solution for you, will be more likely to find it.  ;)
