Hi everyone

I have a acer aspire es 15. I have partitioned the hdd hlaf for Windows and half for pop os which i am really keen on using but after running the installation 3 times now even with a new iso image it keeps freezing the install on "Finishing the installation (0%)" i have tried googling a solution but no luck finding anything that i could understand to fix this so i was hopeing someone here could help me fix this so i may enjoy pop os. I have added a photo of the last log that it freezes on i hope this helps

What is the Terminal output if you run sudo ls -a /boot/efi/loader/entries ?

You want to set a timeout value for the systemd-boot menu? In /boot/efi/loader/loader.conf, you can set `timeout 5` to set the timeout value to 5 seconds.

You can copy the Microsoft directory from Microsoft's EFI partition to Pop's EFI partition, and it will automatically detect it on startup. That said, it's virtually no different from using the motherboard's native EFI boot menu to select between Pop!_OS and Windows Boot Manager at startup.

I might be wrong but but on my laptop the Windows boot partition is in the main partition so i dono what to copy. The other partition says recovery and so on

Windows creates a 100MB EFI partition which contains a Microsoft directory.

/boot/efi is where Pop's EFI partition is mounted.
