I’m new to Manjaro(and linux overall) and currently have a live USB of it and use it as an alternative to macintosh on non-apple products. I have a computer and a laptop that I am trying to boot the usb on.
The laptop being a Dell Inspiron 1545
and the computer being a Dell OptiPlex 5050
(With no added hardware than factory)
When on the laptop if I boot from USB, it will show a black screen with flashing underscore, sometimes going to another line. This is before ANYTHING ELSE. Tutorials for this problem I have found are always after a log in setup or something. If I boot from CD-ROM on my laptop though Manjaro boots up normally.
When on my computer, booting from USB does the same as it does for my laptop. Only allowing my computer to boot up CD-ROM (Since it doesn’t give the option without a CD in the computer) and then starting will say there is nothing to boot with.
If you need more info please ask me to provide it. I also want to mention I don’t want to touch anything involving the internal drive and I want to be able to keep the data on my live USB.
Thank you in advance
