Annoyingly, I am back with another stupid problem. :sigh:
I was installing linux ( xfce edition ). I chose the option erase everything and install Linux. When it gave me the summary and told me that changes can't be made after this I clicked on yes.
But the installer just closes after that?????? No installation is done or "now Linux is being installed".
I am surprised, so I reboot the computer and it logs into windows??????
make sure you are booting the ISO in the right mode for your computer. If UEFI then EFI mode, if legacy BIOS, MBR mode. Some systems will boot both but if your windows 10 is factory installed it will be EFI. When you start the computer there should be the option to envoke a boot menu. Make sure you pick the option to boot from that says EFI in front of it.
What do you mean? Could you elaborate with a screen shot?
Here is the screen shot of my installer
As mentioned above, I chose erase everything and when the step "summary" came up, I clicked on install. After that, the installer just closes, leaving the desktop......
This similar problem like this. I still haven't found solution.
I didn't have this problem with Xfce ISO, but with i3 and KDE ISOs. At the end I installed i3 with Manjaro Architect, which is not the easiest way to do for beginner, but since you are wiping all HDD you can't do too much wrong. You can try and follow this guide Installation with Manjaro-Architect ISO, and if you read the instructions in Architect, it explains almost everything.
The bright side is you will learn much how Linux works
Easier, but not better way, is to download older ISO, e.g. 18.0.4, try to install it and after that fully update it.
The OP here used 'erased disk' when installing.
That wiped out the partition table.
Your case may be due to the LBA extended partition. But I'm not entirely sure. LBA is not used for decades. And not sure why it's there.
But glad you have it working.
I have LBA, because I had dual boot, and MBR was limiting me with number of partitions. I was not able to make swap and separate root and home partition. Eventually I migrated to Linux completely, but that partition remained like that. Do you recommend me to change it to something else?
The strange thing is that this calamares crash is only happening with the newest ISO. I installed several previous versions of Manjaro, without any problem, also MXLinux, Mint, Arch Linux. Only with this specific two ISOs I had the problem.
Yes, I cannot make what is the issue in your case too. The LBA seems outstanding though.
And is now not required for whatever partitions we need at the extended partition.
Perhaps still for for old non-sata disks. But I am clearly not certain.
But for this OP, it is because he used 'erase disk' at installation. That I'm fairly certain.
Yes, probably best you reinstall.
This time get partitions ready before reinstalling.
Use gparted, at device tab, create partition table, choose msdos and then make partitions.
At installation, do not use"erase disk", use manual installation.
