Today I swapped my motherboard a gigabyte gaming b350 for an asrock b450 steel legend. Currently, the board detects my nvme drive where linux is installed and goes to grub so I can choose which OS I I want but as I chose Manjaro it just goes black and then stays like that.
I run a dual boot system and when I plugged my Windows drive back in it immediately booted into Wjndows 10. I’m also unable to get any linux usb to load at all. I’ve tried Manjaro, Ubuntu, and a few others but nothing works.
Any help to troubleshoot this matter would be greatly appreciated!
Fast boot and secure boot are turned off by default and the board shipped with the latest bios version P3.40.
My drive configuration is this:
Nvme: primary boot drive containing Manjaro
WD250: secondary Windows build
I’m using GRUB2 as the bootloader. When the system boots up, it successfully loads grub showing me my choices of Manjaro or Windows. Windows loads perfectly fine but when I choose Manjaro it just goes black and stays that way.
When it boots to a black screen there’s no signal being sent to my monitor. I did try CTRL+ALT+F3 but with no success.
The usb I was using had some older versions of linux (about six months old) but I had a newer version of XFCE from doing testing on my brother’s new pc. I plugged that in and the board booted automatically to that one.
I’m wondering if the installation of Manjaro is not being detected at all but grub loads without issue.
What kernel comes with that USB? What kernel were you using in your Manjaro? You can use the LiveUSB to chroot to your system and update the kernel if necessary. If you are unsure how to do it, you can get help from here
Grub’s configuration comes from your Manjaro’s partition, so at least that it’s detecting. I’m guessing more of a kernel driver problem with the current kernel of your Manjaro
