Can't get past booting from usb to installation

Everytime I try to install Manjaro on my new surface laptop 4 the Ryzen 5 edition on with 16g ram I get stuck at the part right after I select the drivers

I’ve disabled ***Secure Boot (off) and I can see this to be true when I pull up msinfo32
I’m new to all this but really wanted this new laptop to be my everyday windows/Linux dual boot machine

Any help would be appreciated

Also tried selecting both the open source and proprietary drivers options

After selecting the driver option and the install starts I see a line saying:
cp:can not create directory :‘/run/initramfs/’ no such file or directory

This happens with both the minimal and full editions of gnome

Let me know if there is other info I can provide that could help

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information. [HowTo] Provide System Information
  2. Please press the three dots below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.

TIP: enable UEFI

You have to disable Secure Boot.

Thank you, I’ve used speccy to help provide some additional info in an edit

I’ve gone through this and applied the what was possible from the appropriate checklists but I still can’t get past the USB boot and selecting the drivers to use.
I’m left staring at and installation terminal which runs for a couple of seconds then stops/freezes
I never end up getting to the graphical installer
