no disk is seen in your case

trouble is here , its says empty ...
so calamares do no go after
@philm can you check this case ?

/dev/sda is the usb drive. There are no other drives at all, given the op has posted everything.
Which would mean all disk space is already occupied by ntfs.

sorry but I do not know how to check.

Windows does recognize all the disk. Is there is something to fo with windows. I read that I may should cancel "Boot secure" option in windows but I understood that it may interfere to read files so I should do it only in case I can not read windows files....

It is a totally new computer so besides Windows 10 I haven't install anything yet. So if it will make it more easy I can format and reinstall windows again

I will reboot with windows and check again.
Should I make a non allocated partition of about 30GB

Check in your bios settings if SATA controler is set to AHCI.

it is UEFI not BIOS should it be the same?

No,not the boot mode but Bios/firmware settings.

I don't know what a non allocated partition is.
All i can tell you at this point is

  • you need free space on a harddisk to install an additional OS.
  • you can not create partitions/filesystems in windows suitable to install linux on it.

Deduce.

It is:
Intel RST Premium With Intel Optane System Acceleration

Should I change it to AHCI ?

You could try setting it to AHCI. But there is a risk that your windows won't boot. Try to see if it will work.

thanks, I will

thanks a lot. With AHCL it is working but the windows not. I can reinstall windows with AHCL and then after install Manjaro.

Do you think that windows performance under AHCL will get slower?

I don't think that would be very perceptible. But honestly I cannot tell for sure. You would perhaps need to do some research on it. There was a recent thread on the forum with similar issue as yours. There is a method to convert your Windows to AHCI without reinstalling. Here is the link:

:warning:
Sort of disclaimer: Don't shoot the messenger!

It looks useful, but since it is a fresh new computer it seems to me simpler and safer to reinstall windows.
Concerning the comparison, just to let you know that most info I found indicated that most likely shouldn't be significant performance differences in a single SSD configuration. Nevertheless, I found one place that indicated differently http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/rst-raid-vs-ahci-single-nvme-drive-theres-a-significant-difference.830629/

Thank again for your great assistance
