Now when you install Manjaro with the secure boot disabled it should install.
Manjaro should erase the Windows partitions and take over the whole TB drive.

If not you'll have to wait for camorri as he has more experience and has been a Senior Member longer.
Hm, The time i got the error, I had secure boot disabled, I wish it's not one of those distros that just never work.

I tried looking it up, Did not end up with anything useful, Sadly, The message using the graphical installer is " Base filesystem does not exist! Critical error ( Exiting )"
The command line just gave me " Installation Failed " which barely helps.

YUK, sorry:-

Base filesystem does not exist: implies that there isn't one.

Did you check the integrity of the .iso file before to burned it to CD/DVD or placed it on the usb stick?

Mr. Widget helped a member with the same error message as yours maybe this will help-?

How can there not be a base file system? O.o

And no, I did not check the .iso before putting it on the usb stick, I alsu used YUMI to flash it so there's that.

The .iso may be corrupt--

At the bottom of the page is "Check Sums" Depending on which version you download make sure that the sha1sum or the md5sum matches. If it does not match it is not wise to use it. When you click on either the sha1sum or md5sum it will give you a .txt file with the correct number in it.

I never though of that, I will redownload and check the sha1sum and the md5sum, Thanks for the help, I hope my problem gets fixed.

What software are you using to create the USB sticks? Personally I only use either Rufus or unetbootin and they have done a great job. Have you tried any other distro?

While I have had one good install on a UEFI laptop, in general I disable secure boot, enable legacy boot (shut off UEFI), and do not use GPT disk partitions. T'Was I you, I'd download a "mainstream" distro like Mint 17 and see if it works. I'd also create 1 200 GB main partition to make the install as plain vanilla as possible. Eliminate all the unique factors and perhaps you can move forward...

I do not have any experience as yet with UEFI, but as a Manjaro user I can tell you the distro is fully fledged enough that I would doubt any other distro would work any better at this point.

In saying that, I have also found that using a combination of the Manjaro and Arch wikis has helped me solve any problems I have run into.

Sorry for being late getting back to this thread. I have read through what you have done.

GPT partitions are fine. In fact, it takes some extra effort to get rid of a GPT partition table, there is one at the beginning of the disk and another at the end. I have read several threads where partitioning back to msdos partitions, leaves the last GPT table, and the system thinks its still GPT. My would recommend you use GPT.

UEFI. Look in to the doc for Manjaro for info on how to install to a UEFI system. There are extra things you need to do for it to work. I'm no expert here, I only know what I have read. I don't own a UEFI system, and will avoid it as long as I can.

The advice to use a more main stream distro may be a good one. You should find info on how to install to a UEFI system. Yes, you need secure boot disabled.

Wished I could help more.
