Help Darkmatter exo 4.7 stuck in boot logo

Hello everyone, i tried to install Darkmatter today. i installed darkmatter with OtherFS option because when i try to partition my disk it says "There are no free mbr slots". so i didnt install darkmatter with ext4 partition. because that i have no other option to install it on my ntfs disk. the installation went smoothly and i rebooted my laptop. then when im booting to darkmatter its always stuck on the boot logo. i force restarted my laptop and booted it again and still no result. so if anyone knows how to fix between:
1. "There are no free mbr slots" error when im partitioning the disk, or
2. how to fix the stuck on boot logo
Please tell me because im very interested in trying out darkmatter.

Since Its in beta version. There are high chances of having bugs.. So wait for few days to get the final version of DarkMatter 4.7. Even I am having the similar issue, but mine is having the restart loop after selecting the kernal in DM...

1. Your PC uses Legacy BIOS, thats why you got the no-free-mbr-slots. But to workaround this you need to select partition type as Logcial and it's not any bug.

2. Try to repair partition from recovery-mode.

Thanks, but i already find my own solution, it turns out i cant have more than 4 primary disks so i have to merge my e:/ disk to my d:/ disk. and after that i can partition ext4 disk and install darkmatter there and no more stuck on boot logo.

Good to know :). If you BIOS was uEFI then you wouldn't face this issue I believe.
