I am trying to install manjaro 20 but it doesn't let me, it says "error: unknown filesystem" and I have tried all the partitions on ls and they all say the same thing

Do you mean GRUB rescue?
are you installing Manjaro, only?
Give us some hardware information, to begin with -=- make and model of PC, amount or RAM installed, Optical drive or not, etc.

It says "error: unknown filesystem" I have 16 gigs of ddr3 1333mhz, an Intel Core i3-3220. all of my partitions (hd0, hd1, hd2) are all the same error, how can i fix this?
FYI -- Double Post is a no-no! But let's continue. . .

OK. Start over and use gparted in install to partiion three partitions -- a root (/) of 24GB, a swap of one GB, and a /home of 100GB. I would suggest leaving the rest of the hard drive Unallocated, for now unless you are going to use very large files for some reason either as apps or to save.

/ ------------ ext4
swap ---------- swap
/home ---------- ext4 or ext3

Can you accomplish this without further assistance, or would you prefer help?

Ok, so I have gparted and stuff and I have an unallocated space of 146.48GB. I wanna do a 102gb for Linux, how many partitions do I have to make and are they ext4? How much space do I need? Keep in mind it's my first time trying to install Linux.
Ok, edit. I just realised that you told me before, but how much space does home and swap need?
