I'm attempting to install Arch Linux using the
btrfs filesystem. I'm at the beginning of the install processes preparing my drive and I'm hitting an issue.
Firstly I begin to clear any GTP and MBR records from any previous installation attempts using:
I then go into expert mode using
x command and then use
z to remove GTP and/or MBR.
I then use
fdisk to create a new partition using the entire space on the drive - which is 119GB.
After creating the partition, and writing it, I then attempt to create the filesystem using:
But I get an error:
/dev/sda1 appears to contain an existing filesystem (btrfs)
How is this so? All I have done is created a partition, so how can btrfs already exist as the filesystem type?
