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?

Sorry for being late, I've switched to GPT & it worked. But am facing an issue with the Nvidia iso but intel/AMD one works fine

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.
