@magnolia_dudeFirstly glad your all sorted and enjoy Ubuntu Touch. Windows often throws a spanner in the works unfortunately. Things get lost during the process which is why we say to use the 15 sec adb version on windows and to remove other phone drivers. Why it happens I'm not sure, I never had an issue once I had 15 sec adb installed but others have. Some don't even need the 15 sec version. Which is what makes it awkward when adding or not adding info to the install instructions. Still maybe something to keep in mind.
The snap version of the installer is in my opinion the easiest version to use and you can watch progress in the terminal.
