I wanted to move my linux install to a new drive, so I installed Manjaro on that drive then copied my file system overwriting the installed one. When I installed the new one, I chose a swap with hibernate abilities when my old one I had no swap. Something interesting to me is without any setup, it was using the swap partition and allowed hibernation but didn’t resume correctly, just starting as if it was off. I decided to try to set up hibernation. Nothing I have tried has worked though so far.
I added the partition UUID to grub. Two places just to make sure.
I have made sure to sudo mkinitcpio -P and sudo update-grub each time. Nothing has worked so far, grub just does it’s normal menu then I boot normally.
I recently got a new ROG motherboard, so I don’t know if that affects things. I don’t know much about BIOS stuff, but I can say I have secure boot on and CSM off if that affects things
I have tried different things with these, but this is what they currently are.

The old/current file system did not say it had any updates available when I made the new installation, and currently doesn’t and hasn’t since. I don’t know what the update status of the new installation was, but I downloaded a minimal image right before making it, which I used. I replaced the root partition, but not the efi boot one. I just used the boot one the new installation created.
…and what happened to files in ~/.gnupg~/.kde4~/.local~/.ssr for example? Or do you mean everything including Home folder data? If you overworte everything I would try to update and the to restore the boot loader.
I used GParted in a bootable media and just copied the whole old root partition into the new one, supposedly completely overwriting it. I expected it to not work, that’s why I still have the original installation on the old drive, but it seems to be working fine for me right now.
I’ve tried restoring the boot loader, and the system seems up-to-date. I found an option about some sort of fast boot and disabled it; that didnt seem to work. idk what the UEFI stuff is, but it seems like it has always been in it I’m guessing? Seems I’m using the right boot entry.
I may just delete the swap partition; I don’t need hibernate too badly.
