Can use ISO with linux54 (19.0.2) but not with linux56 (20.0.3, 20.1rc6) - i3-3770S - GTX 1050 Ti

I can boot and open terminal
Bt nothing works properly in the live entertainment
Any command I type gives me nothing…the cursor just jumps to next line and starts blinking

And the debug file is completely empty
And I don’t have internet in live environment…

Isos with newer kernels than 5.4 isn’t installing!!

I have a similar problem with not completing the install from a USB stick. I’m attempting to install alongside Win 10. I have all the secure boot and signature settings setup and it does boot from the usb. It fails at the very end of the process.
I appreciate the help. What other information do you need? Apparently I can’t include the links in this output so I don’t know how to send the output

Here is the output:

If Fedora installer did not work too, I think the problem is on your machine. Bad Usb port? Have you tried to change usb port when you create the iso?
In your machine there is another S.O. to try usb ports?
Check in your Bios the usb settings…

Hello @Computer_Email23, sorry for the delay, but after reading everything now, i could swear that your usb drive has I/O Errors.


  1. Iso is not downloaded correctly and have errors,
  2. Usb drive has “badblocks” which cause Iinput/Output errors. (sometimes they are just not visible)

I would rather expect that the usb drive is about to die.
You can use the sha1 code to check if the image matches code.
Replace the usb drive.

Hello @groverc!

This could be more that problem:

Solution: Don’t install a office suite, when it ask.

I can install any os from the same usb port and usb stick(using a 120gb ssd)…only isos with kernel newer than 5.4 is causing the problem (I think so)

Usb drive(120gb ssd) is fine because I can install any other os with it
The problem is just with isos with new kernels!
Strange :confused::confused:

How to enable secure boot in manjaro?
Can you send me a link for guidance?

Could you start a live session with this iso? We not more information, what causes your problem.


So it seems you have a problem with the kernels higher than linux54.

Please post then the output of:

manjaro-architect-20.0.3-200607-linux56.iso could be a workaround? but needs a internet connection.

Disable secure boot in the UEFI. It makes more trouble than it helps.

As new user you can’t upload pictures, but you can upload it to for example and put the links as code here. add " `" at the beginning at at the end:

Have look here for understanding the trustlevels: Understanding Discourse Trust Levels

It’s perfectly possible what you observe.
Ok, then look for the latest ISO with linux54 and install that one. You can use Manjaro Architect installer on that ISO. This way you should avoid issues with GPG signatures and many packages that need an update.

Should I post inxi from the working iso(19.0.2)??

Yes I can install 19.0.2
And I’ll try architect edition…

So I can never install new iso???:persevere::persevere::persevere:

Thank you :wink: But please edit it and use ``` at the beginning and at the end, so that it is readable formatted. :slight_smile:

What we can try is setting parameter in grub boot menu, to see what actually the problem is with the newer kernel.

Also very helpful would be a boot journal:

journalctl -b -0 > ~/current_boot.log

Without internet connection impossible, but install Manjaro 19.0.2 and don’t upgrade everything, instead install the linux56 kernel and boot it. Then create the same log as above. If you cant do anything in linux56, just reboot use the linux54 kernel. Then create the log, but like this:

journalctl -b -1 > ~/last_boot.log

it will create a log file of the previous boot.

Better use for the journal log, because it could be very long.

Ya…after updating everything it is now 20.1
And I can switch to kernel 5.8.6 without any problem

Bt is there any way to directly install the latest isos with new kernels?

Feel free to built you own manjaro distro with the preferred kernel:

i probably wouldnt worry about manjaro…every week theres about 3gig of updates you need to install …just getting too expensive…
