Please read this: How to provide good information
and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…
An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.
P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which exact CPU/GPU or Kernel, … you have without typing it every time
I have the exact same issue. During boot it says “Started Window Manager” and then it shows the rapidly blinking/flickering cursor on a black screen.
On this screen, when I spam CTRL+Alt+Fx sufficiently, I eventually am able to show a console. (it keeps switching back to the cursor screen until it doesn’t and shows me the console)
My machine is a Ryzen 7 3800 XT with an MSI Radeon 6700 XT.
When I boot with proprietary drivers from the USB install drive, inxi tells me (I manually typed this over, because copy/paste obviously won’t work):

The recommended driver for the newer cards right now is the video-linux driver aka amdgpu. Are you perhaps on an older kernel? Complete support for the newer cards has just arrived in 5.12, so that might be worth a try. Alternatively the 5.10 version had decent support for my 6800XT. You might als…
The ISO seems to be based on kernel 5.10, so that’s possibly the issue.
I’m going to try a newer kernel from github dot com/manjaro/release-review/releases
I’ll report back. If that doesn’t work, I’ll get an advanced inxi paste here! Cheers!
