Manjaro installer stuck on waiting for 1 module

I know people have had this problem before, but I’ve exhausted all my options.

So, I want a dual-boot drive with Windows 10 and Manjaro XFCE, I’ve already got Windows 10 installed and I’m currently running Manjaro on a flash drive. The first problem I had was the SSD not being recognised by either the Manjaro installer or GParted. I successfully followed a guide to switch the SSD from RAID to AHCI which I had seen on other peoples’ posts.

Everything seems to be working fine except the installer which gets stuck on waiting for 1 module. Other posts concerning this problem with the installer just resort to changing the SSD to AHCI from IDE/RAID but I’ve already done that. I’ve tried using Manjaro Architect but to be honest it’s rather complicated and I keep getting the error of failing to install ‘basepkgs’ (126).

Basically, with the SSD on AHCI the installer waits indefinitely for 1 module, and with the SSD on RAID the installer, and GParted, don’t recognise the SSD.

Using kernel version 510, laptop is Dell Inspiron 15 5000.

Have you checked the SHA of the downloaded ISO and reflashed the flash drive?


The ISO’s hash hasn’t been changed and I’ve already retried using Rufus on the flash drive.

This is a common problem that has multiple posts that have been erroneously closed with a solution when that is very obviously not the case. Mods you need to review the other posts and reopen the ones that have been closed. We need a solid solution for this not someone who thinks their one solution is the only problem anyone will ever have.
