Replace Mint with Manjaro

I would like to replace Mint on my laptop with Manjaro. Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the install? Do I need to do anything with partitions?

An I just pop the Manjaro disk in and install?

I have recently switched from Zorin to Manjaro. All I did is backed up all of my important files and installed Manjaro it did the rest.

Hey @harvlake!
Just as @Skinstitcher said, all you need to do is just backup your files to an external drive. Manjaro will handle all the installation requirements on its own. :slight_smile:

Great to know! I am assuming this is also true of other distros like Zorin, Solus, Mint etc?


I hopped through some distros over a couple weeks. Mint, manjaro, zorin and back to mint. Since I really didn’t save anything, I was able to reinstall and used the option to “Erase Everything” and they all worked as mentioned above

Yup! All distros come with their own partitioning and preparation utilities during the installation process.
