Can't boot Manjaro on Lenovo 320 15AST

I tried to install it with and without EFI partition, boot in in legacy and in efi modes. Other distros like Ubuntu, Fedora - fine (they have EFI partition).
It’s just not on the list.

At ubuntu terminal, what’s

parted -l
efibootmgr -v
cat /proc/cmdline

you may need root (sudo) for some above.

john@localhost:~$ parted -l
Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!

On topic,
You need to disable secure boot when installing Manjaro and booting it up.
Try it. Let us know.
It is also probably tied in with Microsoft.

However, you have a few things outside this topic.

  1. Your disk is aligned properly or partitioned well
    your ‘parted -l’ won’t print with ‘unknown partition table’
    Try ‘sudo blkid’ (not ‘blkid’) - see it it prints.
    Since ‘parted -l’ won’t print, try ‘sudo fdisk -l’
  2. You are booting up with shim, Can Ubuntu in your system boot without shim?
    If it cannot, your Lenovo is probably tied in with Microsoft.
  3. You are booting Ubuntu here not on a kernel but on a ‘rescue’ kernel?
    Why? Can you explain this? recovery? Is ‘normal’ Ubuntu booting?

With EFI and secure boot off doesn’t work too.

  1. How to know about shim ? There Lenovo splash screen and then list of systems.
  2. Have no idea, didn’t change anything like that for Ubuntu. It is normal booting.

but now there is no hard disk left and now
don’t understood that.

john100, just try…

Did not get your “sudo blkid”, (so i don’t know your $esp for efibootmgr)
When installing manjaro select $esp (sda1 - got your ‘fdisk -l’) as mount point /boot/efi - do not format.

Try it. Repeat - disable secure boot.

Is there something ?

Tried again: EFI - didn’t format it, secure boot off. Still no Manjaro on the list.

Look at this.
Does Manjaro boot this way?
Do all steps including [Additional UEFI commands]
And provide new “efibootmgr -v” output

Could you explain this. How exactly todo it ? What additional command ?
