Boot problem with manual partitioning

I have tried several times to install the OS with manual partitioning, with a boot partition, I tried once formatted and once without formatting along with another OS, and a formatted system partition. All in the Blend OS installer application itself. Yesterday @ム丂イ乇尺ノ丂ズ told me that this was fixed in the latest version 4636db55 but the result for me is the same. Any information you can give me I will gladly provide, thanks for everything
Solution:
Yup you were correct. It wasn't in the intial boot order but I went into another option where it fedora as first boot and "OS" as second boot. It's up and running. Thank you again. I guess this is going to be a case for refind after all.

I am also having trouble with partitioning. I run fdisk and gparted (via the blenderOS installer) and they match mb for mb and drive for drive. But when I go back to drive selection, the installer has completely different storage values and drive numbering is different.

@ACM if you partitionned after the blendOS installer started, close it and restart it from the application menu and you should see the refreshed drive layout

It's close so I am just going to try it. It's a test system anyway. I have kinoite on it but it's replaceable.

could be the difference between both units. 1GB is not a 1 GiB... Take P5: 523.75 Gigabytes = 487.78 Gibibytes https://convertlive.com/u/convert/gigabytes/to/gibibytes#523.75 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte#Multiple-byte_units You're all good :)

Ahh that's very true, I knew that stuff and it never occurred to me. I did the install and it said it was completed successfully. But nothing I do makes it boot. It reboots into kinoite perfectly. But i can't press alt when booting for an option and when I go into grub, it gives me four Kinoite time stamps to boot from. The system just doesn't see it. Maybe I'll try a boot repair or even Refind and see if it helps.

try if you can select your blendOS partition as boot override in your BIOS. If you can boot into blendOS this way, it might just be that you already had a bootloader and blendOS did not overwrite it and could not add itself to it as a boot option
