The installer is showing 13 diffrent partions

Are you dual booting and if so that looks like chrome os.

Gnome-disks does not show the disk that linux is installed on.

I don’t see a question here

where do I install linux. (I use disks using the live boot)

are you trying to dual boot, or replace ChromeOS?

What device are you using?

What firmware are you running?

I am trying to dual boot, RW-legacy, Acer spin 511

nvm I installed it and got the partitions but now I have no way of booting into the installed debian

nvm IT BOOTED YAY(i had to boot it from the .efi file)

now i can use chromeos and debian both fully functionly
