Is it. Ubuntu 17.04 or. Ubuntu 17.10? There is no "Ubuntu 17". It doesn't exist.

Are you wanting to dual boot or do you want Ubuntu as the only OS on the system?

i get an error stating there is a read/write error on the start of installation after choosing erase everything and install ubuntu if i dont click ignore or retry it freezes well i cant say freeze but it wont allow me to click continue or retry or anything but if i click ignore immediately when it prompts it continues as normal and installs but then tells me at the end that grub didnt install and ubuntu wont boot without grub

If you have secure boot then disable it.

Please elaborate on "read/write error on the start of installation"
What error message do you get there?
What kind of disk is this?
