Can't make partition

#1

i can´t instal new manjaro on new drive, ´can´t make new partition on that drive where is fedora raw.

[Stable Update] 2018-05-07 - Kernels, Mesa, Glibc, PHP, Nvidia, Plasma5, Firefox
#2

I was able to install the manjar in a sata drive. The old one was on another Ata drive divided up with files and other things that came from windws like music and work files. In conclusion, this ATA or IDE drive was reduced to system volume information, everything disappeared even the old manjaro installation.

Please answer the rest of the questions.
It seems you are running some system. Which one? (Fedora?)

I got an iso, the last one that was on the page of the manjaro, first to record with windoes, gave errors, so that I squewi with my MAc and recorded. was installed on a sata samesung drive, where you enter tb installed linux mint that stopped working on the windows installation. In addition, it had fedora raw tb installed, and on an IDE / ATA drive it had important files such as 100 gigs of music, working docs, and scheduling. This drive had installed the manjaro that was running where they were masters jobs. After everything installed and this time with no problem, everything went well, no errors - drive samsegung - which for linux j’a I do not know which one.
sda, it was the same disk divided in half, with material, doc, musics, images, olanifications to the other half of the disc ran the manjaro 17 …
OS running - manjaro

I’m sorry if I’m late to answer, but I just got home from work and did not even have lunch … it was heating up lunch.

Sorry, it is difficult to understand.
Please do these to help me realize your situation:

  • Reboot to Manjaro LiveISO
  • Open a terminal, run these commands and paste them here
inxi -SMpxxz
lsblk

It looks that your old files still exist but we have to make things right.

Please try to remember where you installed Manjaro. It looks like you have many Linux partitions and one LVM-something on which I have no experience at all.
Else you have to mount all linux partitions and look for /etc/manjaro-release existance or inside /etc/lsb-release for “Manjaro”

One more I forgot (sorry)

You need to install Grub to the drive.
Before doing that, check your BIOS for the 1st boot drive and select Samsung, or during boot press F5 (usually, depends on your BIOS) to select.
If not, then

mhwd-chroot
(select the number in the list that manjaro is installed, to chroot into)
grub-install /dev/sdb
update-grub
exit
reboot

I think that livevm is from fedora, because when I finished installing it I noticed that I had several partitions, small partitions that I did not understand for what they were used, linuxmint is in samsegung but it does not boot up due to the installation of windows that my son asked me for psychology work. …and I have only used a nanjaro.
grub is installed on the samesung drive, which is the same drive as linux mint.
I will try to do this.
A hug and thanks for the help.

#16

Make sure about the drive you install Grub.
You said you have Manjaro on Samsung, not Mint.
Just check before you use the install cmd

I reboot, Bios.
In the bios, the priority disk is the samsung.
The boot is made of this disk with the grub of the manjaro.

#18

[https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.1/Deployment_Guide/s1-lvm-intro-whatis.html]
https://docs-old.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/14/html/Storage_Administration_Guide/ch-lvm.html
So Lvmpv is from Fedora.

#19

Are you able to boot to Manjaro then?
Did you succeed already?
If you have LVM configured on the disk, you need an LVM expert to advise you further.
Maybe @Chrysostomus could have a look.

I start with samsung and the grub or bootmenu appears to me, where the manjaro is in first place … and I start without problems.
manjaro is on sdb8 and i think the boot is on sdb6 because no gparted appears the asterisk and the boot front. More than that I do not know.
Linux mint does not work since i installed windows10.
