Installation failed 2nd time


Hi people, I have just joined the Forum and I would like some help please.
I am a struggling Linux/Ubuntu user that is very keen to try Manjaro as I have read glowing reports on how stable and easy it is to use.
I was running KDE Neon but I want to move on. I am trying to install Manjaro Gnome newest version. I've created a live USB to use for the install.
On the first attempt I had a "Failed install, unable to create a Partition" so I looked through the Forum and saw that I should create a partition first and that should solve it. I used Gparted and the total disk was partitioned without a choice to manually size it.
Ok, I tried again, nope no luck. There was a few fails so I took a screen shot so as they can be seen.


I hope someone can help. Thanks.
Use a "keyword search" to make sure your question has not already been asked. For example "failed to verify key" or "sound is muted".

Make sure you include enough detail so people know what you are running. A useful command is inxi -Fxz; copy and paste the text and format as "code" (e.g. use the </> button above).

If possible, paste text rather than upload a photo. Text is easier to read, searchable, and takes up less space on the server. Please don't upload high-resolution photos.

For more information read this post: How to provide good information in your posts

Remember to remove all of this help text before you post.


And you didn't... :smiling_imp:

What "newest" version did you use? The stable install image is still at at release 18.0.4 ─ any install image with a newer version is still in the Testing phase and should not be used for production systems unless you know what you are doing ─ but being a curated rolling-release distribution, you will be on par with the latest software once you update the system.

If you did indeed use 18.0.4, did you check the signature and the checksum on the downloaded image file before you created your bootable USB stick?

How did you create the live USB stick? What tool did you use?


Preliminary diagnosis by lack of information: :thinking:

  1. You had a corrupted download; or
  2. You incorrectly created the live USB; or
  3. You used the experimental install image rather than the Stable one; or
  4. Any combination of the above.

Thanks for replying to my rather confused post. I think you may be correct in your assumptions. I downloaded 'manjaro-gnome-18.0.4-stable-x86_64.iso' and created the USB on the internal program 'Disks' (KDE neon) BUT I didn't check it's integrity. I have done the ' inxi -Fxz ' for you, so I hope it is legible. Also sorry I didn't remove the extra text I was supposed to. I tried to edit it but it didn't work.
So, I guess I'll start again.
