Re: Unable to Install Arch Linux with archinstall on a particular drive

Hi,
Most likely you are trying to install on a disk that is not empty, i.e. contains some partitions. I got this kind of error one time, which was resolved by deleting all partitions from the disk. Don't forget to copy all the data from these partitions to another location.

@MeghBadoniya:
While cgb_spender might very well be right, please make sure that the partitions you are nuking don't contain stuff you need. Since you're using the archinstall scripts I'm assuming you're new to arch, and I myself with 14 years of arch usage under my belt managed to nuke the wrong drive a few months back. So please, PLEASE, while the above quoted info might very well be correct, double check and verify before following such advice.
