Manjaro archiect LVM + SSD cache can't install bootloader

Hello

I am trying to install manjaro with LVM cache. I have followed a guide, I am not encrypting just using LVM I just followed Partitioning -> LVM setup -> Boot setup.

Below I list my devices(with mounts I use for install) the devices I will use are sda and nvme0n1

sda                           8:0    0   3.7T  0 disk

And here are the output of fdisk /dev/sda and /dev/nvme0n1

When I mounts devices archiect detects my pre-made LVM setup. I have selected nvme0n1p1 as /boot/efi in mount settings.

Later when choosing "Select bootloader" I select UEFI Bootloader GRUB and manjaro as name(default):
1.
Under install i get:
"cat: /sys/block/nvme0n1: Is a directory
cat: sda/removable: No such file or directory
there is nothing to do"

after install and setings bootloader as default
"[install GRUB][1] cp: cannot stat '/boot/efi/EFI/manjaro/grubx64.efi': No such file or directory"

If anyone knows how to install manjaro with LVM and a cache(maybe add cache later?) setup that would be great. I have tried to look around and follow a few different tutorials but haven't got it to work but maybe I have missed some small detail.

Thanks in advance for any help
