An EFI system partition is necessary to start manjaro


Hello Linux fans.

I have currently a dual boot system , windows 8 and linux mint 18. It is UEFI and boots correctly

When I attempt to install manjaro from usb stick and chose the manual partition features
I set sda10 as root and sda11 as /home

When I click install I get a warning
“An EFI system partition is necessary to start manjaro”

The thing is that I do have and EFI system partition. gparted image from linux mint


Do you actually set the mount point for your EFI partition as /boot/efi? IIRC the installer won’t do that automatically.

Yes you should make sure it is selected as the ESP (but do not format it)
