This is my very first installation of a custom rom. I was making good progress until I got stuck at the "fastbootd" step. After I enter "fastboot reboot fastboot" Powershell says "waiting for any device". When I check my device I can see Fastbootd in red across the top but it's unclear what I'm supposed to select from there. Here are the choices it gives me:
Reboot system now
Enter recovery
Reboot to bootloader
Power off
The instructions above seem simple enough but I'm not sure how to move pass this to get to Step 4.
????:confused:

Power down your device and connect it to your computer by keeping the volume up button pressed, you'll see a blue light which means you are in fastboot mode and not fastbootd

you need to be in fasboot mode first, to flash the rom

I was in fastboot mode (as instructed in step #2). Step #3 indicates fastbootd. I tried skipping step #3 and this is what I got ...

... not sure if I'm screwing this whole thing up. When I rebooted it just went to the standard Google services.

After flashing vbmeta, reboot to fastbootd this time to flash system & product.
I didn't need to do this the first time but I wanted to reinstall LOS with other gapps, and this time I had to flash system & product in fastbootd because I had an error similar to yours and It worked.
