I recently installed Manjaro KDE(plasma) on my Desktop and love it
I wanted to install Manjaro XFCE or Mangaro KDE on my Lenovo Yoga C640 C640-13IML Laptop and can’t boot the USB stick.
This Laptop BIOS doesn’t allow me to set it in legacy mode. I can though, turn on and off the SafeMode but it doesn’t help. Yes I choose the BOS menu (boot menu) and choose the USB stick but it doesn’t recognize it.
Whatever I do in the BIOS the USB stick is unbootable… a WIndows USB stick will boot
For I don’t know which reason, I tried Garuda KDE ( arch based) and it booted with the USB stick without any problem…
Does anyone have a guess why Garuda KDE ( dragonized version) based on arch would boot from an installation USB stick and not Manjaro KDE (or XFCE)
I don’t like that Laptop Bios but I’m stucked with it…
ventoy needs to format the USB stick. It will then create two partitions — one for itself and one for the ISOs. You then simply drag & drop the ISOs onto the second partition as files. ventoy will recognize them and offer you a menu from which you can boot the ISOs directly.
It was a new laptop and it had only windows on it (but there is an appimage too). But i have used rufus too, with variable success. I now use ventoy, ventoy adds another layer/chainload on booting, which is not liked by some old selfextracting antivirus iso-s for example (they look for the kernel in the wrong path then). Have not tried the combo ventoy+manjaro iso.
