impossible to install on existing partitions using the latest ISO.
I have a previously installed calculate version on it (2 versions ago), it does not boot so I decided to reinstall (I made some unsafe tests).
During the installation, I was stuck at the “installation type” tab.
in “installation type” I chose “use current partitions”
it said “autopartition options are not available in manual partition”.
@phoenix83 helped me in the IRC: I just had to select the “blank” option in the partition table select control.
( if your using manual partition you need to change partition type from dos or gpt to blank)
next: in layout tab
it says “please specify EFI partition by UEFI option”
I manually set/dev/nvme0n1p1 to be mounted in /boot/efi with uefi fs type - no formatting !
(In fact I used my previous fstab for that)
I can’t see where that “UEFI option” is.
this is my HD layout:
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/nvme0n1p1 2048 534527 532480 260M EFI System /dev/nvme0n1p2 534528 567295 32768 16M Microsoft reserved /dev/nvme0n1p3 567296 332257279 331689984 158.2G Microsoft basic data /dev/nvme0n1p4 498100224 500107263 2007040 980M Windows recovery environment /dev/nvme0n1p5 332257280 365025279 32768000 15.6G Linux swap /dev/nvme0n1p6 365025280 498100223 133074944 63.5G Linux filesystem
I want to set nvme0n1p5 as swap and nvme0n1p6 as root
but impossible to select the existing EFI part in /boot/efi. and I got this message.
I took a screenshot of both problems (first: just for the record.
here is the fstab of the previously installed calculate system:
