    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.

You're using a custom install. In detail, how did you mount / root, /boot/efi and /swap? You seem to be missing /boot/efi. You should have a 512MB FAT32 EFI partition to mount /boot/efi.
The reason you can see what you have in Disks and Gparted is that it is their job to find and manipulate partitions, but the installer won't proceed because it hasn't got what it needs yet.

I noticed that the partition is MBR. Are you booting via UEFI or legacy mode?
I would think legacy mode, at which point doesn't Pop!_OS not use /boot/efi and installs grub instead of kernelstub?

On the rare occasion you may have to use the Intel ISO and add the system76-nvidia-driver later. I've only seen that a couple of times, but it could be a possible solution for you.
