    Was installing Linux Mint on one of our computers (replacing windows) and about 5-10 minutes into the installation process there is a power outage at our place. When the power comes back on the PC starts but is empty, it seems windows is removed. But when I go to boot from the USB to now do the Linux install I end up getting a bunch of errors. Any suggestions on what I should do here?

    I think I'd reformat and start from fresh.

    Problem fixed. It was the USB, must have got corrupted when there was the power blackout.
