I have a 1TB portable SSD that currently has a 100mb EFI system partition, a 500 GB NTFS windows partition, and 500 GB of unallocated space. I have tried multiple times to install manjaro xfce 21.07 using both the automatic partitioner, and manual partitioning. In every case it hangs at 90%, installing the bootloader. It appears from inspection that manjaro is installed, but not the bootloader. I tried to install grub manually using the details on the wiki. This also hangs. When in verbose mode, it hangs at executing efibootmgr.
I would post the exact wiki article I followed but it won’t allow me.
