Ubuntu 20.04 Installation Stuck

hello i am trying to install ubuntu 20.04 and i keep getting stuck on the following screen after many many hours of waiting:


wanting to boot it up from try without install first(safe mode) so i can manually set it to install the os to an external ssd. i want to do this because my laptop is originally a windows machine, and as you reading this are aware windows does not like to put hard drives into ext/4 format. ideally once i get it installed on ssd, i use that to install onto the hard drive because then i can do what im wanting to do.

used kernal boot settings: acpi=off noapic nolapic nodmraid nomodeset

i appreciate any help tried my best to solve problem on my own but i cant
