  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Install Window/Dialog closes after selecting keyboard layout

I'm trying to install Pop OS on my MacBook Pro as a dual-boot, but after I enter my keyboard layout the installation window closes. When I open it again, it wants me to start from the first dialog again and quits after the keyboard layout again.

Can anybody help me find out what I'm doing wrong.

My drive is GUID formatted with one APFS volume for MacOS + a small and large FAT32 for Pop

I've checked the checksum and installed via etcher

Pop should have one 500MB to 1GB FAT32 for /boot/efi. The other partiton for /, or root, should be ext4.
Additionally, if you're custom installing, you could add a 4 to 8GB swap as linuxswap, and, a 4.3GB FAT32 mounted at /recovery. You won't see the recovery in the set up, but the installer will see it and utilize it as such.
Depending on the input, you may have to install defaults and change them later once successfully installed. One or two layouts and languages are still not playing nice with the installer, but will work as default later.

I tried different languages, also USA and default US layout.

For the partitions I have one 20GB FAT32 and one 150GB FAT32 intended for /boot/efi and /, do I have to name them specifically before I start the installation? If yes do you know how I can do that @derpOmattic ? Thanks for your help :)

ye sorry i meant the 20GB is for /boot/efi and the 150GB is for /, but I guess 20GB is still overkill
