Black screen upon fresh install, please help.

you have installed free or no-free drivers ?
can you get TTY ( Ctrl+Alt +F2 to F7 ) if blackscreen

Are you able to run Manjaro from a live medium?

I can run from the live medium, and no, I did’nt include the non-free stuff. Stupid me…

Since it’s a new installation, my suggestion would be to start from scratch, install it again using the non-free drivers. Or you could chroot into the existing installation (I remember you saying that you did it before), refresh your mirrors and update. Maybe switch to a LTS kernel as well with
mhwd-kernel -i linux54
