Re: Booting into installation and stuck without next step.

Moving to the Guided Installer section.

Delete existing partition: /dev/nvmeBn1p5 looks wrong in any case, where did you configure that how? Did you punch a screenshot through some OCR tool? Don't do that post the actual install log in: /var/log/archinstall/install.log … n_services

Re: Booting into installation and stuck without next step.

it was caused by archinstall somehow, i tried to pacman -Sy archinstall, and then it is okay to proceed now for partition format.

but there is still some issues for bootloader if using fault option via that bootloader, while grub also failed to work.

i am using Limine now since my ext4 not encrypted, hopefully to fix somehow soon
