I have Windows 10 which has three partitions and Ubuntu Mate with two ext4 partitions (one for / and one for /home) and a swap partition.

How can I install Arch Linux on one of those two ext4 partitions?

Here is the output of fdisk -l

Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.

    Welcome to U&L , please edit here by adding the output of fdisk -l , did you need to remove Ubuntu ? – GAD3R May 19 '17 at 9:09
  • The user-friendly Arch Linux based distribution is called Manjaro. manjaro.org – Michael D. May 19 '17 at 9:31
  • I edited the question with the output of 'fdisk -l' and I also tried Manjaro. It doesn't boot up. – Xyntell May 19 '17 at 16:32

    As GAD3R alluded, is your intention to replace your current Ubuntu installation with Arch, or to install Arch along side Ubuntu? – Emmanuel Rosa May 19 '17 at 20:43
  • I want to replace Ubuntu with Arch and have Arch alongside Windows. – Xyntell May 22 '17 at 10:13
