I am wanting to try and install EOS alongside a Windows 11 installation following the successful creation of a live usb to boot from. I have previously used Manjaro along with other distros and therefore familiar with how linux works but I am not, by no means an expert. My issue is that once booted in the live usb and updated the mirrors from the welcome screen, after which I then try and carry out a live install however this does not progress past 13%. I have even left the pc on overnight in the hope that this would complete, as I read about the slow mirrors articles however surely this should have completed after approx 8 hours. I have yet to try an offline install but specs for my machine are:
ASUS ROG CROSSAHAIR viii HERO wifi
32Gb DDR4 RAM
NVIDIA 1050TI GPU
MAIN PARTITION FOR THE OS IS A 1TB Hdd
The Efi partition is on a NVME drive where windows installation is (unfortunately not enough space to cram eos on the nvme too).
Internet connection is not an issue by the way.
Any advice would be great. Many thanks in advance.
P.S. apologies if this is the wrong place to post this topic too
Apologies I think this is the 2nd attempt to install following a reboot and forgot to run an update on the mirrors, however this was the same issue on the 1st attempt following an update of these. Will repost the log as with it being a live version the update won’t be persistent, right?
Hi thanks for the advice so far, would this automatically fix it itself if I did an offline install as it would not need to pull the PGP key down from the server during install or am I wrong in thinking that. Once install is complete I can then import the key by using terminal if that would work and workaround using a different DE post install.
I have just tried running the script commands line by line in terminal I am getting the following
So this may be the reason for the online installer failing. Proceeding with Offline and will then tinker about to see what I can do. Can we please keep the thread open while running the offline installer please. Many thanks
Ok, so offline install successful thanks, but will be opening a new post on OS update as getting stuck in a loop now where it’s telling me there is an unresolvable conflict between jack2 and pipewire-jack once terminal asks if I want to replace hwids with core/hwdata. Irrespective of the choice (Y/n) I get the same error.
