I went to go install Manjaro on this old laptop, but for some reason No Partiton to Install on appeared, so i tried to update the BIOS because it doesnt have the option to disable legacy boot. The driver was a .exe, great. So i tried to install wine but a corrupt file would not allow it to install… Extremely confused, im a beginner. Laptop: EliteBook 8460p

This is often caused by the disk setup in your system firmware.
Systems are usually setup to run Windows - so change your system to use AHCI.
