Hi @rbrick49.

While the inxi -F output is helpful we need to know a bit more to get to bottom of this.

What ISO were you trying to install? The OM Lx 4.0 from SourceForge or other? Or for instance OM Lx 4.1 Beta or RC?

We can probably get to what is going wrong if you run installer from Konsole and copy and paste entire output in a .txt file and post that file here. To run installer in Konsole:

$ pkexec calamares -d

Also if you could post screen shots of exactly what you are trying to do and any error messages that would be helpful.

Is this that nvme drive? Are you trying to install to that drive? nvme drives are new and some don’t yet have firmware in Linux kernel. My Samsung 970 EVO Plus did not when I first installed OM Lx on it. On the ISO’s under “Troubleshooting” you will see 2 options to start OM Lx live mode with:


I had to use PCIE ASPM=OFF until the firmware for my Samsung got to Linux kernel about a month after I got it. I do not know if either of these would work in your case but something to try. Those options were put there because of user reported issue with nvme ssd’s.

its ok its installed I wasnt installing it on the nvme I was installing it on a ssd when I partitioned the ssd the installer wouldnt install it but erasing and letting the installer do its automatic install it worked fine,I manually partitition all my drives this way and they dont give me any problem.
first partition 512 mb fat 32
second root 50000mb
third home bance of drive
no swap I have 64 gig of onboard memory
the iso i have installed is OpenMandrivaLx.4.1-beta-plasma.x86_64.iso
