It's difficult to visualize what is going on here.

Pick one flavor of Linux to follow through for the troubleshooting. (I would suggest Mint because of the friendly installer.)

Start the install.

At each step, make notes of what step it is, what the menu options are, what you select, and what happens when you select a step. You may even take digital photos of the computer screens so you can post the crucial step as an attachment to your post.

Try to document precisely where the install fails, then come back to us with more details.

Why not post the solution? It might help someone else who runs into the same thing.
