sudo inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command

  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.

Have you already :mag: for your problem in the forum ? (Wisdom lies in asking → listening → reading :wink: )

If you search for “ventoy” or “install” in this forum, you may find a lot of tips.


There is a button when installing (bottom right) that is called “show log” or something similar.
Run the installer and when it freezes, copy all text in that log and use the </> button here in the message box and paste the text.

The only thing you didn’t mention was the integrity check.

Try using manjaro-iso-downloader to download and verify the ISO.

sudo pacman -Syu manjaro-iso-downloader

Or the python script provided at Using python to download and verify a Manjaro ISO
