Tried to install manjaro kde now all I’m getting is this when I install.
When I go to the installer the only options are to manually partition which I have no idea how to do.
This is what my partitions look like after trying to install.

Uh…What are you installing Manjaro on?
Looks like you’re trying to install Manjaro onto an eMMC or something? Not an actual HDD or SSD?
It’s on a laptop and it only gives me one option to install onto.
While in the LiveISO, please type these commands into the terminal, and provide us with the outputs.
inxi -Fza lsblk
Please also use ``` before and after the outputs so that it’s easier to read on the forum. You can open up the web browser in the LiveISO to provide us with the info.

Okay, looks like your laptop uses an 64GB eMMC.
Unfortunately, I am not experienced in installing onto eMMCs; hopefully someone else can help.
I am going to update your title from:
Tried to reinstall manjaro kde but all I get is an error can only boot into usb now →
Unable to install Manjaro KDE on eMMC: Install Grub Issue
This will hopefully provide more visibility.
Okay thanks for the help.
Actually, one thing we can try is:
In manual partitioning, on the top, there should be something that says something like “Create New Partition Table” or something like that. Select that, then choose GPT, then try to run the installer again
Use KDE Partition Manager to delete all partitions (it is already in your Live Image) and try once using Auto Partiton / Erase disk option.
I am assuming you don’t have any other OS in your eMMC…
Your initial error - is because you have booted your system has no more space to write new boot entries.
It is a common error and the simple answer is reboot into the firmware and delete unneeded entries.
What entries you need to delete is entirely your call - you may be better equipped to make the decision after reading this
I tried to delete a boot for windows but the terminal response was Could not delete variable: No space left on device
Select that, then choose GPT, then try to run the installer again
When I do that there are no partitions made so I would need help to setup the partitions so I could try to install.
Both the fat32 and the main stoarge ext4 are locked form editing when I boot from the live image usb.
Once booted in, make an 8GB swapfile
So should I make the swap partition while I’m in the manuel partition manager or If I’m able to boot in then I make it?
No, make a swapfile once booted in
The installation failed with the same error as before so I think I need to do what linux-aarhus said to do but I don’t fully understand it.
Nevermind I understand
In manuel partitioning it gives me the option to format the partitions or keep the content should I format them?
