Error stating “Please select a root (/) partition before proceeding” when trying to install to a selected partition in Manjaro

I got my hands on a Manjaro Linux distribution today and decided to install and play with it.

I got confronted with the below error after running through the initial setup steps and trying to choose the partition that Manjaro needed to be installed to.

After trying a few things and lots of disk partitioning I found how to install Manjaro to the root partition as shown in the short video below. This would hopefully save you some time and get to installing and enjoying Manjaro.
