[EN] [SOLVED} MOW installation failing on Samsung NVMe SSD

I am attempting to install Masters of War on my System76 laptop, and ran into a problem. Here is the hardware, with the live MOW running on it:

I prepared the SSD in advance, using the partitioning scheme shown in this article. I like this plan, and when my old SSD failed in my main desktop, I used it on my new NVMe SSD and it worked perfectly to install MOW, about two weeks ago.

Using the same MOW USB stick, it fails with a calamares "failed to unpack image /tmp/calames" and "rsync failed with error code 11". Screenshots attached. After it failed the first time, I installed gparted and took a screenshot that shows the partitions and it shows the mount points for /tmp/calamares -- it looks like there are four (4) of them.

I don't understand how it worked so well on the desktop, but not at all on the laptop. Both use 500 GB NVMe SSDs. Any suggestions?  Thanks!

I assume you made a typo when formatting the drive:
You have assigned only 40 MiB to the root-Partition. I do think, you meant 40 GiB (or more?).
[In the article cited, it are about 32 GiB.]
Good luck.

Yip, that looks like something's wrong with your partition layout. But as far as I can see, the layout you tried to build yourself is pretty similar to the default layout. So maybe try sticking with this, at least for testing?

That said, I successfully installed Siduction MoW and earlier versions on laptops quite similar to the Oryx Pro (newer CPUs or different GPU variants). So, I have high hopes that it will work out for you as well. :-)

OH Geez -- how did I miss that?  Yes, 40 GiB was the plan -- I think you have found my problem -- fixing and trying again.

YES, the problem was staring in my face -- the "MiB"s were intended to be GiBs. As soon as the partitioning was corrected, the installation finished perfectly. @ro_sid, come to Dayton and I'll buy you a beer!

Thank you.

You're welcome and I'm glad.

Thank you very much for the offer, but its realization might take a while :).
