Clear will not install to nvme

I have installed Clear several times with no problems in the past. My pc is a i3 10th gen desktop with a HD and nvme.I just downloaded the new 3500 version on usb and it would not install on my nvme, but did install on my HD. Shortly after the install starts it has a red dialog install failed see install log. I don’t understand the log.Any ideas? Could it just be the newer version? I’m dual booting with Windows 10. I tried the advanced partitioning and the along side selection.If so is older version available for download?

if that nvme is samsung 8xx or older there is likely to have some issue.

The NVME is a Western Digital PC SN520,less than 2 years old. I had some booting trouble after updating my Windows 10 to 21h1.I decided to just remove and reinstall Clear to solve it, but I got the installation failed warning. The install log has some lines mentioning partition warnings. As I said Clear has been installed on it before.

what’s the error message>

I was hoping someone could look at the log warnings and give me a clue as to why it installed to my HD fine but not to the SSD. I can post the whole clr-installer.log but the warnings were the only things that appeared wrong.

was this nvme partitioned as MBR?

I appreciate your replies but think someone who has had the same problem or can interpret the log is needed. My PC is less then 2 years old as in my original post,it’s EFI.

same issue here
MS Surface Laptop Go, nvme SSD.

it s been more than a week, we are at least 3 people with the issue and it seems like nobody has found a fix ??

PS : I made a bug report : https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/2428

oh it’s working when doing the installation alongside existing partitions !
(I previously had CLR_BOOT & CLR_ROOT partitions pre-prepared …)
(only had the issue that the ESP was not activated, see Activate ESP (EFI) Partitition in UEFI with bootctl install )

I am going to switch distros. I had hoped for some help,but nothing. I tried to read up on disk partioning , efi,esp and systemd -boot.I have to install it using several different methods. I have used Clear for over a year and liked its speed and reliability. Using a slow HHD when I have a fast ssd (a very common one, Western Digital PC SN520) is not fun.I believe the problem is in the installer but I am novice user, what do I know? I am very disappointed in the help from this forum.

We’re still waiting for your answer to Doct0rHu’s question:
“was this nvme partitioned as MBR?”

The partition is GPT. I would have replied to Doct0rHu question but I was sure all new pc’s were GPT now. Also I felt my original post was not read completely because my PC is too new to have a “old Samsung”. I stated Clear was installed before with no problems on the same PC, same partition table but the new updated 35000 download . Any help would still be appreciated. I will answer all questions in the future. Sorry and thanks

I ran fdisk -l to be sure there was no mistake that it is GPT

did you install alongside existing partitions ??
or did you pre-prepare CLR_BOOT and CLR_ROOT partitions ?

I tried both several times.

I also installed the bundle “clr-installer-gui” to the working HHD and tried to do the install from there instead of the USB. It failed both ways with that too.

Can you create the partitions with labels on your NVMe SSD manually and post your installer logs here? Also create new GPT table to be sure and/or use gdisk to check current table.

  • CLR_BOOT (~200MB)
  • CLR_SWAP (very small, 10-20MB)
  • CLR_ROOT (30-40GB)
  • CLR_MNT_/home (the rest)

I was sure all new pc’s were GPT now.

From my experience new SSDs are clear.
