I have messed up my installation and want to do a fresh install. Can’t seem to find an answer. I have manjaro on a usb flash drive. When i boot from usb it just loads like normal, no option to re-install or repair?

There are ways to repair broken installs from chroot
The first time i had a windows machine, it loaded from usb into live environment.
I can’t seem to access the live environment, it just loads straight in like normal. I have boot order set to usb first that doesn’t work. Tried manually selecting from boot menu. I create the iso with

I’ll try recreating it, i may try the chroot option, never done it before.

Well, there is also the easy way. Just type:
manjaro-chroot -a and you are in chroot after choosing the installation by number.
