Hi,
I wanted to download linux mint on my old laptop.
When i was on install page, I created 3 partitions:
271853589_1451872535231379_1632743875864548720_n.jpg

- "/" root partition with 27 gb assigned
- "/home" home partition with 30 gb assigned
- swap area with 5913 mb assigned

Then I clicked Install now.
I was redirected to the region selection page and then an error popped up:
271743860_661512201543641_8569627615298953198_n.jpg


I am new to Linux and would appreciate your help with this problem.
Thanks :)

When I install Linux Mint, I install the OS to the whole Drive. I don't create partitions anymore and haven't for years. You don't need to create a swap partition any more as Mint will create a swap file of 2GB which is just fine.
