Installation fails

Garuda KDE Dragonized

This was my first time with Garuda. It is beautiful but I was not able to install.

The installation aborted as it was approaching the end. Maybe 97% completed

My computer has an ASUS motherboard with UEFI instead of BIOS), 16 GB RAM. I do not recall the graphic card brand (maybe ASUS) but it is based on nVidia. My hard disk is new 3 TB HGT (Western Digital).

I am also using removable hard disk (ICY DOCK) but don't think that matters.

Can someone please provide me a solution, or where I can get the solution?

Below are the messages I got:

Welcome, @valhalla2100 :wave:

You should configure your BIOS for EFI/UEFI-mode boot.


You are using BIOS mode. Change setting in bios and boot using UEFI mode. After entering live environment

ls /sys/firmware

Should have efi directory. That means you've booted using UEFI mode.
