Heyaa there homies!!! I hope y'all are doing good.
I am a newbie to garuda and to this forum (even though I have used ubuntu in the past for quite some time, but I am not your average-linux-geek so I am sorry if I sound dumb or something at some point, Though I do know some of the most-basic stuffs so I guess I'll be okay).
So basically I was a windows user up until now but it was practically milking out my performance and because of some several other reasons I was planning to switch to garuda on my main laptop for quite some time and finally tried installing it (trying since last 3 days ).
So well back to the topic, I was installing Garuda.
- Created my flash drive bootable using
rufus(etcher & ventoy weren't actually doing the thing properly so rufus was my best bet).
- Booted from the drive allowing
Proprietary Drivers from NVIDIA, followed the installation steps, and did a clean install on my ssd, but the installation progress got stuck at 79% (Configuring the hardware part thingy). I waited for really long time (~2 hours) but there was no change in progress, so I just shutted it down.
- I tried the same thing 4-5 times with minor tweaks each time (like not connecting to any network, disconnecting/connecting the power source) but the progress was all the same each time.
- Frustrated with this, I surfed the internet on possible causes and fixes, found some similar issues on this forum but couldn't get any satisfactory answer.
- Tried following one of the answer which mentioned that nvidia drivers often fricks up and suggested that proprietary drivers should be installed later, so I tried booting up with open source drivers and ran the calamares instalation in debug mode using
sudo -E calamares -d, the installation went pretty good up until 79%, but it damn fricked up at that point and the installation got stuck again. I am glad I did run it in debug mode so I was lucky to get the logs which I have mentioned below in this same post.
PS: The flavour I am trying to install is
Garuda KDE Dr460nized (the latest iso, checksum already verified).
PS #2: Some posts suggested that the wifi adapter should be disabled at the bios level, but I definitely not want that. I am a student so I have to frequently travel with my laptop and my primary means of internet is WiFi.

I really wish being able to use garuda as my daily-use-os as soon as I could otherwise I'll need to get back to crappy windows sh!t (since I have a lot pending stuff to do :sadge:) :")
Please feel free to let me know if I should provide any additional detail. Any help would be really appreciated. Great thanks and have a nice day
