Installing bootloader ~ systemd-boot, freeze everything

So everytime when I try to install Manjaro from Architect 17.1.12 it completes perfectly, but as soon I try it on Manjaro (I tried every desktop environment) 18 it hangs only on installing bootloader,
my partitions are like:
/ - around 29GB
/boot - 384MB (ESP and Boot flag)

can you return

sudo fdisk -l

I've received that message before, after doing a base + adding a minimal KDE. It always came at the end of the sequence, even though I had gone through the GRUB installation process, and it appeared successful.

Well, it was successful--though I did it again--and everything "worked as intended" after finishing and a reboot.

regards

Can you boot your installed system by starting with the live stick and choose "Detect bootable ..."?

If you are still on Live media, check this ($esp) for /EFI/manjaro folder. If it exists, (and contains files.. bootloader) then it's probably installed the bootloader.. :wink:

A check would confirm

efibootmgr -v

Actually no, it doesn't detect anything :confused:

There is no files because it is like, i click install bootloader, and immediately as I choose systemd-boot it hangs so I can't do anything, I don't know but I always have problem on 4.19 Kernel, sometimes if I open opera with 6 or more pages and gimp with something big my computer just hangs.

Your partition is gpt

And your stick looks like MBR (dos)

Use Etcher to flash your stick and try installing again pls.

Edit: Well, as I can see from my live stick it is dos too. But it is a trouble maker. The only one really working reliably is the super grub stick which is gpt.

I think it's definitely kernel's fault, yesterday I install manjaro differently, I installed desktop Environment (with KDE 18 Manjaro Install), but for boot loader I used Manjaro install KDE 17.1.12 and it's perfectly fine, but I will try it @calvous :wink:

just updated my post

Maybe I will try rufus, because you can choose what type of partition it's gonna be

I forgot that there is no rufus for linux, etcher did format USB in msdos too.

Sorry, I missed you are installing systemd-boot. The $esp should be mounted at /boot and contain
($esp=/boot)/EFI/systemd/systemd-bootx64.efi

I know, i always remember that, but for now i will just install Manjaro 17.1.12 Architect and it is gonna be all good. Thanks for helping me newbie :slight_smile:
