Your installer writes Fat32 instead of of vfat

 UUID=3005-E2A1                            /boot/efi      Fat32   defaults,noatime 0 2

UUID=3005-E2A1                            /boot/efi      vfat   defaults,noatime 0 2

and during installation it stops with:

Boost.Python-Fehler in Job "bootloader".
<class 'subprocess.CalledProcessError'>
Command 'grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Manjaro --force' returned non-zero exit status 1.
  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 334, in run

  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 305, in prepare_bootloader
    install_grub(efi_directory, fw_type)

  File "/usr/lib/calamares/modules/bootloader/", line 236, in install_grub

  File "<string>", line 2, in <module

Thats a real showstopper!!!

Manjaro xfce from today ( 22.07.2017 )


one hour later:

could start Manjaro but in terminal locale for german keyboard is missing.

Yes, i told the installer which locale to use.

Have to stop now .. getting angry!!

Hi John,

You have posted in the "Classic" - old, out of date & unused Manjaro forum, which exists "only" for reference purposes.
Please create an account here: & where you will have an audience when you vent your frustrations, & also I expect that a solution to your problem will be supplied.

Good luck (& welcome ;) )

by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.
