How to Install Manjaro 17.0

Hi guys, Manjaro 17.0 is released few hours ago. This release brought lot of changes and improvements to Manjaro. So without wasting much time let's get to know how to install Manjaro 17.0. We have used Manjaro 17.0 KDE edition for this process.
There are few requirements before triggering installation process :
  • A USB drive or DVD for making bootable media.
  • Iso file of Manjaro Linuxwhich can be found in this post.
  • Rufus or any other bootable media creator.
  • Basic knowledge of tweaking bios and about installation procces.
  • Patience, courage and fear too.
Step 1 - Download and create bootable media of Manajro 17.0. Plug itin your system and boot into live session of Manjaro Linux 17.0. From the live session start up the graphical installer of Manjaro 17.0.

Step 2 - Now you are in installer, you will be greeted with various screens which will ask for various information such as, language, location, keyboards type, etc. It is a basic thing to do in all type of Linux installations.

Step 3 - This step is most important one. If you mess up here, then you can say goodbye to your data. This step involves some sub-steps, let's check them one by one.

  • Once you have completed selecting basic information, the partition thing comes. Take partitioning very seriously, as all your data depends on it. In this step we strongly recommend you to do manual partitioning and understand the risks and process of partitioning. As you can see below, we have two HDD in our system so we are choosing any one of them to install Manjaro 17.0. If you also have multiple HDD in your system then choose the desired one here. after that check on Manual partitioning and click on next.

  • Now there are different partitions according to your system. Our system only have two partitions in HDD 1. The green one is in NTFS format and is windows installation partition. We will be using the yellow one i.e. sda3 (this can be different according to your system). Select the desired partition and click on edit. In edit menu select partition size and keep format as ext4 or ext3 or ext2. Check on format drive, this will clean the partition for proper installation. Select / as mount point and leave the rest as it is.

  • Once you have done setting up partitions, it is time to choose bootloader location. Make sure you choose root of your HDD. In case you have multiple HDDs then choose the root of your current bootable HDD.
