Clean install freezes after login

Hey guys,

I’ve been having trouble installing Manjaro KDE. I’ve tried using the graphical installer and architect. I manage to get through all the installation steps, but upon reboot, the system freezes and leaves me with the KDE background and the Manjaro logo with a frozen wheel. I’ve tried pressing ctl+alt+f2, but the system’s completely frozen. Not sure if it’s a correct assumption, but I suspect it could be related to the GPU driver (GPU: GTX 1060 mobile). I’ve tried these steps:

but it still freezes. Wondering if somebody could shed some light/if anybody experienced this before and managed to fix it.

Thanks a bunch!

Do you have the same hardware?

Boot into the live installer environment and paste the output of inxi -Fxxxz here.

Boot to TTY editing grub menu (use this tutorial)

Check for errors in

journalctl -b -1 -p 3
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old

Post them here if you cannot evaluate (use proper wrapper as in tutorial)
Also post

mhwd -li
inxi -SMGxxz

Thanks for the help guys! I was away for the weekend, and when I opened it today, the whole system was working. Not sure why… I’m going to try to reboot it.

Okay, everything froze after i clicked restart. Here’s the output of inxi -Fxxxz:

@AgentS, I tried

journalctl -b -1 -p 3 
Specifying boot ID or boot offset has no effect, no persistent journal was found 
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old 
No such file or directory 

@AgentS, here are the outputs of

Was it the installed system or the USB installer (usb was plugged in)?

The system says it has booted to a “root” partition of 11.66GB which has only 94.8MB contents. Can you explain that?
Check partitioning and /etc/fstab of the installed system.

sudo inxi -puo
cat /etc/fstab  # of the installed system partition
