Stuck at "Examining local storage devices..."

Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:53 am

Hi,

I'm having an odd issue where the installer is stuck at "Examining local storage devices..." right before you select the installation location. I am currently in a live environment booted off a USB. I have tried re-writing the USB but that didn't fix it.

I have been able to successfully install Ubuntu 18.04 as well as Solus 3 only a few days ago. Not sure why the installer is stuck now.

Has anyone experienced this before and can offer some suggestions?

Thanks.

Don't know what the root cause of the problem was but figured out a fix... I delete all partitions on the target drive and the installation proceeded successfully. I had a similar issue when trying to install Manjaro. Installing Ubuntu was possible without any issues.

Return to “Installation”
