The second time I tried to install, the partitioning from the first attempt had in fact gone through as planned despite the error message, and the subsequent install went without a hitch.

I have the same bug, trying to install in a fresh SSD, it crashes during the localitation selection which means is the partition process.
Also screen goes black and it starts the discret nvidia graphic card(I have a led on the laptop) but it goes back to the intel. but the screen stays black with the mouse on it
