What HP laptop model that you use?
Edit: Found similar questions on the Arch Linux forum, Manjaro is based on Arch.
HP 14-DQ0011DX. I downloaded Manjaro from a mirror I believe. Put on a Sandisk USB stick via Universal USB Installer Penlinux. The only was to install was to erase SSD first. The 3 other options weren't allowed. I've gone thru every BIOS option I can imagine with no help. SSD scan returns no problems. All Youtube tutorials address this to return to Windows. Because I've had many problems with Windows since being in a motel in January, I tried to install Manjaro.G'day Kennybee, Welcome to Linux.org
How did you carry out the install ?...from usb stick or from dvd ?
How did you burn/attach Manjaro to the usb/dvd ?....did you use a particular app/program to do this with ?
Thanks for the update.Used new USB stick vía UUI Penlinux. Strange thing, though. The pre-install scan stated 3 errors. So, I install with WiFi on. And it seems to work ok. I tend to believe Windows factory installed drives don’t always play well with a Linux “erase and install”.
There should be somewhere on the page that you download your .iso from will provide you with a md5sum or shasum number. It's usually a long number to compare.Ok. But, I’m not sure how to verify an .iso file.
The easiest way is to verify an ISO file is to use GTK Hash. @wizardfromoz posted a detailed tutorial on GTKHash here on this forum:Ok. But, I’m not sure how to verify an .iso file.
