My laptop recently has decided to stop booting windows. I have tried countless ways to fix it, until I decided to give up and switch to Linux, and I chose Manjaro KDE. I love the look of it, so I tried to install it from my USB. After making sure all settings were correct(Erase entire drive, made sure the drive was correct) it throws an error about the partition? I can’t tell exactly what the error is trying to do, but I really want to install this. If anyone can help, thanks!
The Installer failed to create partition on disk [my drives name]
Create new partition(300.0MB, fat32) on /dev/sda
Job: Create new partition on ‘/dev/sda’
Command: mkfs.fat -F32 -I -v /dev/sda1
Well that’s a shame, it would have helped.
Considering even the previously installed Windows fails to boot, and the error when partitioning for Manjaro, it might be a drive issue.
What does return from the liveUSB?
I mean the error actually doesn’t show anything but what I listed, which is strange because I found online that some people do have error codes below. Anyway, I ran the commands and it returned this:

Would it use a MBR partition table?
