No Partition To Install on


I installed Manjaro Linux on my Acer Aspire 5. For some reason when I boot into Manjaro Linux, it only shows me to boot into open source drivers. When I try to install Manjaro using the Manjaro Installer the Installer says my device does not satisfy the requirements. It satisfies all except No partition to install on. How do I create a partition to install manjaro on?

I have an unnallocated slot in my hard drive for manjaro

in your UEFI motherboard

disable secure boot
disable fastboot
disks on AHCI
no legacy
no CSM
UEFI only or others ( not windows )

you should see
UEFI < USB vendor name > < partition 1 > → boot in EFI

recheck info with terminal

inxi -Mxa ( check for UEFI only , not UEFI[legacy] or Bios )
test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
sudo efibootmgr -v
sudo parted -l

can you provide

inxi -Fza 

Hi Stephane.

I’ve completed the first paragraph of steps, But I don’t under stand the bit where it says “UEFI < USB vendor name > < partition 1 > → boot in EFI”. Where exactly do I find this menu? is it in the advanced restart menu?

on UEFI motherboard you will see
UEFI: < USB vendor name > < partition 1 >
UEFI: < USB vendor name >
boot for UEFI

if you see
< USB vendor name > → MBR only
< USB vendor name > < partition 1 > → will end in UEFI[legacy]

Hello Stephane, Where do i find my UEFI motherboard? Is it in the BIOS of the computer? Also Do I find my USB vendor name in the boot menu in the BIOS?

can you provide this ?
boot on usb iso manjaro
open a terminal & a browser on this topic

inxi -Fza 

Ok thanks!

Hello, ive entered the command in the terminal. (Inix -Fza) but it says command not found.

please be careful how you type:

inxi -Fza

(you typed inix)

Hey @Glemon ,

Please have a look at this if you want to use dual boot.

If not, I have some steps:

  1. While using a a live USB boot into manjaro with Open Source Software.
  2. DO not Start Clarames
  3. Open KDE Partition Manager, Password: manjaro
  4. Now KDE Partition Manager will work fine and Format the SSD or HDD with ext4 you want to install Manjaro on
  5. After success, reboot and then Again go into live USB with Open Source or Propitiatory Drivers, and it will work fine.

Ok ill keep that in mind!

Just to note: I can’t exactly access the partitioning manager. I am stuck on the first bit of “Install Manjaro”. It says this laptop is not fit to install manjaro. There are no partitions to install on when I created an unallocated partition for manjaro specifically.

hm… is the HDD listed here?

Please open a terminal and type:

sudo parted -l

Maybe there is a problem with root permissions?

Try start calamares from the terminal:

sudo calamares -d

and please, if possible post the output log of the terminal here.

Thanks :wink:

Alright, ill definitely do that.

How do i paste the output log. It seems to be saying I cant because my text contains a link which it does.
