In this tutorial, I will install manjaro in HDD type GPT/UEFI, for MBR maybe next time I would make the posting.
- Laptop or PC.
- USB bootable file ISO Manjaro.
Understand the Concept of Triple Boot
There are several methods of installing Triple boot Windows, Kali Linux and Manjaro. But I prefer to install them separately and unincorporated.
By separating the three, you do not need to worry there is a problem in Manjaro if Windows is in trouble or in Kali linux, and other. Therefore i need a minimum of three additional new partition to perform triple-boot it.
- Boot Partition
I did not put GRUB in with Windows UEFI boot manager. Therefore in this partition I would put GRUB to Manjaro.
- Root Partition
In this partition Linux will be installed.
- Swap Partition
This partition is required for the swap file and will be used in Linux if it requires additional memory (Swap File is a kind of Page File if on Windows).
- Home Partition (optional)
This partition is optional, you can add or make one with Root. Home is the location where you saved files (music, pictures, documents, etc.).
Here I do not wear Partition Home, Because I combine the Root Partition Partition Home, to make it more simple.
Step by Step Installation:
- Download File ISO Manjaro on Official Website, and then using a bootable USB, I am here wearing Rufus in Windows.
- Empty your HDD partition to install a manjaro, here I give 50 GB.
- Once you’re ready, go into your BIOS menu, restart your computer and press the F5, F2, Esc or Del.
- In the Boot section, select UEFI flashdisk or in the “Save and Exit” and select your flash Bootable the type of UEFI.
- On the Desktop, find “KDE Partition Manager”.
- Then select “unknown” and click “New”.
- Boot Partition: Add Partition “FAT32” for booting UEFI Manjaro, Label “Boot MJR” here I give the size of 50 MB, and then click OK.
- Root Partition: Add Partition “Ext4” to Root, here I give 51.201 MB (50 GB) and then click OK.
- Swap Partition: Add Partition “linuxswap”, size 2.048 (2 GB) and click OK.
- Upon being satisfied, click “Apply” and let the process run.
- When finished partitioning, time to install to HDD.
Install Manjaro to HDD
- Search “Install Manjaro” on the Desktop or in the search box.
- Click “Next” to continue.
- Then select your location, here I was in Asia, especially in Jakarta.
- Select Keyboard, adjust to you.
- Here I prefer the “Manual Partitioning” and please be careful during the installation.
- Adjust the partition that you created earlier, for File System “FAT32” made earlier, select “Format”, Mount Point to “/boot/efi”, give flags to “esp and msft-data,” then click OK.
- And for the Root partition size of 50 GB, select “Format”, for File System “ext4”, Mount Point to “/”, the Flags section emptied.
- And for Swap size 2 GB, select “Format”, for File System “linuxswap”, for Flags section emptied.
- Checked again so that you do not mistakenly install partitions .. !! Then click Next.
- At the User, Please fill in the name of your computer.
- Check again, and then click next, let the system run itself.
- When finished click “Restart” and “Quit”, Unplug your flash and booting into Boot Manjaro, and this is the result.
These steps look longer, but believe me this way will minimize future problems. For example if there is a major update of Windows, the problems in the Linux bootloader will not interfere with the other boot, if there is a problem you can repair the GRUB Bootloader with Bootable ISO file before, if you are confused please comment below or join in the Forum Asepms.com , have a nice day.
