My dad's back in lockdown and he wanted to do this today. Let me just say that helping him install a Linux distribution on a video call was a painful experience. Nothing wrong with the installation process, he just had to install it twice because the password he chose wasn’t working (he tells me it was because he was resting his keyboard on its own cable and it was blocking one particular letter)
