My install is not starting

hello everyone ,i have two computers which i run manjaro on one of them which is 17.06 which is working so good ,but on the other pc which is very old pc with 1 gb ram and 64 vga and a celeron cpu ..i run lite linux on it and it works good but i want to use manjaro because i really love it
anyway , i booted from a usb and everything works charm till i reach the part that we are going to install i press next then i found nothing happen and it closed and back to desktop ,i am really stuck and tired many times ,any ideas its the latest manjaro xfce
i am even sending this topic from the live manjaro everything is working good from the usb but when i start to install and choosing everything ..nothing happens

Hm, how old is your old pc really? If it should be to old to have 64-bit systems installed you should stay with your Linux lite or find an other alternative because Arch and Manjaro stopped supporting 32bit.

and it opened the installer

This could be the problem.
What size is your /dev/sda2?
Installer says it requires 8 GB, but it only found 1 GB.

Yeah you are right ..so now i made new table and made it 9 gb and when it starts to make change it closed and back to desktop again

it seems i can not change it from the installer can i change the size from the terminal ?

Are you sure that sda2 is not an Extended partition?
fsType: "extended" is why I'm asking....

it is extended as i can see to sda5 which is swap

Extended partition is actually just "wrapper" partitions, where no data can be stored. Which is why the installer can't install anything to that partition.

because of that i have used the sudo gparted and deleted the whole disk and started from scratch and made a restart and booted from the usb and started again the installer and did the same thing even when i used 10gb for swap

hello eveyone
this is my 2nd topic about the same issue
which when i try to install and at the message (the manjaro installer is about to my changes to your disk in order to install manjaro 17.0.6. when i press install now ,nothing happen and the installer crush and back to desktop
what can you tell me from this
