Installation stuck at "Configure the hardware"

Hello!
I'm trying to install Manjaro (tried KDE and GNOME) on my laptop for the n-time and it's stuck again at 75% on "Configure the hardware". It's not frozen, but just stuck at 75 for like 40 mins.
Could you please help? I'm new to Arch-based linux.. I've only used Ubuntu and its derivatives before.
It's Acer Aspire V3-571G Specs: i5-3210m, nvidia 640m, 6gb DDR3, 500gb hdd.
I tried:

  • selecting both driver option before booting
  • disabling nvidia in bios
  • manage partitions by hand, automatically and etc.. (just in case)
    What info do you need to know more and how do I get it?

Just to be sure: are you connected to the Internet when you boot on the live CD/USB?
In my experience, you may need to give your WLAN key again if you are using WiFi :slight_smile:.

Yep, I am connected and tried both wired and wireless, booting from live usb. Used rufus 2.17 to burn KDE version and 2.18 for Gnome.
Speaking about wireless, built-in wifi does not sees more than a half of networks, so I used usb dongle. But I'll fix it after installation :slight_smile:

Well, if you can boot, the issue does not come from Rufus.
Since you are stuck at "Configure the hardware", you may take a look at this.
Do you have an output when you enter the following in the console?

mhwd -lh -d --pci

NB: I have personally never experienced issues with driver installation with Manjaro, so I am trying to explore what may be wrong :slight_smile:.

From ubuntu experience with my laptop, some things may work during live session but they won't after installation, until you fix it :smiley:

EDIT: enabled nvidia

I don't see your Nvidia VGA controller, did you left it disabled in BIOS?

Oh, yeah, give me 2 mins, I'll edit post with mhwd output.

OK, Nvidia is also detected along with the rest which means that there is no detection problem.

Can you start Calamares (the Manjaro installer) in debug mode as suggested here?

Ok, it's intalling now in debug mode. I'll post results when something will happen.

And it's stuck here :frowning:
Should I post more?

The problem looks similar to the one I linked. Could you please give the version of Calamares?
Do you have the latest ISO?

Hmm, yeah it looks similar :slight_smile:
Manjaro 17.1.2, downloaded it yesterday
Calamares version: 3.1.12-3

You have exactly the same network chip and the same problem than this post.
Could you please try the workaround of removing the 2 lines?

Nice! :smile:

Could you confirm that your network (both WLAN and LAN) works?

Well, kinda :smiley:
Wired is working just fine, but wireless is having trouble with listing available networks.
WLAN does not sees my 5Ghz network and only sometimes lists my 2.4 GHz network (both coming from the same router which is 5 meters away from me), so I'm using USB dongle for now, which is working correctly with my 2.4 GHz network.

This is a driver issue. mhwd is having problem with the BCM43228 chip, i.e. your WiFi chip.
Could you please check if the package broadcom-wl is installed (source)?

@philm Is it an expected issue from mhwd?

Package? You mean via pacman? ^^" Showing both pacman and grep

[wildcat@acer-aspire ~]$ pacman -Qi broadcom-wl
error: package 'broadcom-wl' was not found
[wildcat@acer-aspire ~]$ lspci | grep Broadcom | grep -v Ethernet
02:00.1 SD Host controller: Broadcom Limited BCM57765/57785 SDXC/MMC Card Reader (rev 10)
02:00.2 System peripheral: Broadcom Limited BCM57765/57785 MS Card Reader (rev 10)
02:00.3 System peripheral: Broadcom Limited BCM57765/57785 xD-Picture Card Reader (rev 10)
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n

If you want to use the tested package, it's broadcom-wl-dkms from the extra repository. You can use pacman or pamac if you want a GUI.
If you wish to access the Arch User Repository (AUR), then use yaourt. AUR is user maintained so be careful.

In your case, I recommend:

sudo pacman -S broadcom-wl-dkms
