I installed Manjaro KDE on a new M2 Sata NVME while the Bios was in Legacy mode. I can change from Bios to UEFI and then the NVME won’t boot. When I change back to Bios to Legacy, all is good. If I change to UEFI and reinstall Manjaro KDE from a USB, will the install create a bootable GPT NVME?
Yes it will set it up with no problems.
for install manjaro
UEFI, create a profile and save for Windows ( if any ) and another for linux
recheck all option in your UEFI ( for linux)
Fast Boot off
all disks on AHCI
boot only on UEFI:<partition 1> → EFI install manjaro
you can check in terminal , before install
inxi -Fxza test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios sudo efibootmgr -v sudo parted -l
*** do not format /boot/efi , only add after for mountpoint ***
I am not doing a dual boot with Windows and thank you. I will keep it in mind if I change my mind. I kept the NVME with Windows separate and put in a new one for Manjaro
Yep, worked great. Set up the Bios to UEFI, unchecked Secure Boot, installed Manjaro KDE. Now have a GPT drive. Thanks again and it generates more questions. Back to the Forum for me!
