Hello, my installation seems to going fine. However I'm now creating the fstab file but im not sure if I should include /dev/sda1 in the fstab file. The handbook doesn't show /dev/sda1 in the "full /etc/fstab/ example". I don't want to mess something up by not including it.

Also for some reason when preparing the /dev/sda1 partition I didnt have to option to make the partion "BIOS boot", I left it as it was. (option 83 "linux") Not sure if that needs to be fixed. Thanks for the help.

I think BIOS Boot is meant for UEFI. If you are not using UEFI you do not need it.
