I've been trying to install eOS for around 3 days now, I'm probably missing something big or I'm just a big retard.
I'm trying to install to my external hdd. So, I've tried to boot from a USB and that works, however it's extremely slow and the installer freezes. A lot. I get an error that /cdrom is mounted and it can't install, I googled how to force it to unmount but then it didn't install at all.
I also tried to boot from my exhdd however I face the cdrom problem again, if I click continue and go install I get stuck on the first step, "disk partitions" or something. It throws 2 errors constantly and loop them forever. Can anyone tell me what to do? I'm a complete linux noob and I'm completely lost.
