Thanks for encouragement , Erik ! :D

Well, just give a try to ‘ archmerged-v6.3.1-2017.12.23.iso
and all works flawlessly!

Yeah it was quite a journey :) but thanks to You Erik !, Thanks to Your excellent tutorials
And scripts what you offer, it was really an influential and educational experience.
Really, very highly appreciate Your hard work, skills and willpower you put into this project!

Unfortunately :? I was not able to sort out the real reason or culprit,
why I failed with ArchMerge 6-3-1. Just no ideas. :roll:

I double even triple checked almost everything, tested different media USB sticks, re-downloaded iso’s,
Used different usb ports on laptop, used different machines to ‘’burn’’ USB ..
so far there was no single error … up to the moment when installer reached to this same break point.

On every attempt – It allowed me to make regional choices, fill up user data etc.
I was using '' clean all disk method '' and let the installer do its job…

Then it stops(freezes) ..almost every time on 22%->24% - at the same specific moment,
where under the progress bar - was message:
‘’Squashing filesystem’’ .. or something similar to ‘’creating-. locating? Mounting point’’.
and hard freezes, cooling fans go crazy and that’s it. Power off no more options ..

Even tried to turn of wifi (this lap have hard switch for wifi) and hardwired it to my Lan router
Directly with cable – no go, no difference at all .. eth.card and wifi works on this machine,
as it was already clear during live sessions and earlier with other distros.
.. more of it .. I have one spare :twisted: ’’ WiFi-Hacking usb adapter’’ (TP-LINK/ TL-WN722N)
even this was automatically recognized and mounted to Live session, but doesn’t help me out.

I had no chance to try DVD media, because the internal dvd-rw drive on this laptop is broken long ago.

Ok then i took one of those same usb sticks, what failed earlier, created bootable Usb,
with same Rufus, on same Desktop .. from ‘ archmerged-v6.3.1-2017.12.23.iso
and WOW .. finally it was done within almost 15 minutes, and I was already in tyy1 CLI or prompt,
So to say ‘’in real Arch way ‘’ LOL not real LOL '' a Half Arch Way ''

Yeah! That’s the lesson here – if there is no EASY way, there is always ONE way ‘’ ARCH WAY ‘’ LOL
However, I have to admit that, much, much more than half of ‘’this WAY’’
I was ‘’riding on Your back -Erik’’ :) just thanks to Your hard work You are offering!


Thank You,
Best Regards

What you can do is start calamares with debug option from the terminal?
It might give us a clue what is going on...
With more technical info we could help out...
