Manjaro gaming edition? That must be a 3rd party spin, can you provide a link?

Might be https://sourceforge.net/projects/mgame/ ?

Could be, there are quite a few things called the gaming edition which was why I wanted a link.

For example, those mgame ISOs are too old at this point and the maintainer seems to be no longer maintaining it.

Yes that the one

See my comments above. Updating from a version that old will be very difficult.

I would recommend installing one of the official versions of Manjaro from here:
https://manjaro.org/get-manjaro/

Ok I dont mind but Because its old it wont install?

or why ?
thanks

Manjaro gets harder to update the longer you wait between updates. That is one of the reasons that new ISOs are constantly being released.

You are basically trying to apply a couple of years worth of updates at once. That will be difficult with many package replacements and special handling required. Additionally, there was an update to pacman and package formats. This happened over time to make the transition safe but that transition is now over.

Thanks

If you have an existing Windows installation on the first SSD, then you should install Manjaro on the second one.

Read through the guide here: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Installation_Guides

Thanks

If you want to have a separate /home partition, then you have to use manual partitioning during installation.

Found the problem

You need:

  1. /boot/efi -> if there is an existing Windows 10 installation, then you can set the /boot/efi partition from Win to that of Manjaro without formatting it.
  2. /boot ~1GB I recommend using ext4 for all partitions without /boot/efi
  3. swap ~size of RAM
  4. / (root) 50 GB ext4
  5. /home remaining space on the SSD.
