My previous posts were for the VM i created from the Full ISO. This post is for my second Garuda VM, this time from
This is my eventual UEFI-GPT:

I’d like to suggest that Calamares could benefit from a small clarification / correction, to save less experienced people a bit of confusion & potential failed installation.
Carefully note this message from Calamares:

/boot despite my belief it should be
/boot/efi. So then, next:
Ie, now Calamares agrees with me, but contradicts itself. I went back & changed to:
