Hello, everyone. I'm dual booting my Lenovo Ideapad 320 and for this I'm trying to install Manjaro Xfce 18.0.4. I already followed the user guide and used Calamares for the automatic installation and partitioning (I chose to put 440 GB for Windows and 460 GB for Manjaro). I believe that the problem lies in the partitioning: installation runs perfectly in the beginning, but when Calamares reaches "running the mounted points" (around 13% of the installation process), it suddenly closes. I've been trying to re-install and understand this for a while now but couldn't find an answer or someone with this same problem. Could someone help me? Thanks in advance.
Not sure if is related, but as pe arch wiki for that model:
Might be helpful too. Since has a UEFI BIOS (AFAIK) make sure you also have the boot partition marked as ESP and if you use the one made by Win$ - DO NOT FORMAT IT, but you have to be sure the partition table is GPT and not MBR.

I just tried to partition the hard disk manually but it's the same as always: when the installation runs mounting points, it closes. By the way, the output above it's from the manually partitioning. I don't know what to do now.
Ok, the fact that you decided to have a separate EFI for Manjaro than the one used by the Windows install, i consider it a + and inspired decision (as windows will not overwrite it with the next "super-update"), but i would put the SWAP partition at the end of the drive.
From what i know, that linux EFI partition should be marked as boot ESP and mounted as /efi/boot ...
@gohlip might confirm or correct me on that
From the data, we are unable to pin point any problem (if there is a problem).
Try using this first post and the [More Complicated Setups] section and see if you can boot to the installed Manjaro partition. And then do the commands there if you can boot it up. And provide the information required there.
If you are unablle to boot using this method, boot up the livecd OS and also provide the information and also go to the file manager and at the installed manjaro partition provide contents of
The information required are
efibootmgr -v sudo parted -l sudo blkid
After nearly two days fighting with Calamares and the automatic installation I gave up and switch to Architect installation. I found a video describing Architect's installation step-by-step and finally got it running! Still don't know what that problem was, though.
Thank you all for trying to help me!
