Hi, I’m unable to install EndeavorOS, when I get to the installer, it says it can’t create a new partition table on /dev/mint-vg
I’ve tried the erase disk option and the replace partition option (which deleted my linux mint partition oof), yet I still get the same error. I dunno what to do at this point
I’ve actually had this issue before when I tried (and failed) to install Manjaro on my laptop.
What’s even stranger is that I have another drive with the same amount of storage on it (ST2000LM007-1R8174) (/dev/sda), but it only gives me the option to manually partition.
hi @Jordan welcome to the EnOS Forum
try to delete it manually from the live system in the terminal.
Hi @Jordan and welcome to the good ship Let’s see if we can help you plant the as your go-to distro.
If you can get to the terminal
to check the partitions you want to wipe before doing anything
sudo wipefs -a /dev/sdX
You could achieve the same result using gparted, but the above is a single line and it works every time no matter how stubborn the old partition or system is.
Hi, thank you for the tip, but unfortunately I’ve run into a roadblock… when I tried it on dev/sda2 (the partition i need to install on) i come across this error:
probing initialization failed: device or resource busy
How do I fix this?
Did you follow the post by @pycrk ?
Tell me, is this partition you are trying to delete a LVM (Logical volume) or regular partition?
You should be able to unmount it.
Hi, after some trial and error removing the LVM off my sda2 drive, I managed to install EndeavorOS. Thanks for your assistance (from both you and @pycrk).
I’m relieved to get everything up and running okay!
it would be nice if you described how you solved the problem and marked it as a solution. that would be very helpful for others with the same problem.
Good to know. Now all you need is to do mark the post that solved your issue , so that others can search the solution. That will also close the thread in a few days.
Enjoy It’s really the only distro I would use after many years of distro hopping. You will find this a really helpful and information packed forum
