First timer here. I have attempted to install Manjaro XFCE 18.04 alongside my current Windows 10 setup on a Dell XPS 15 9560.
I have two problems at the moment. I don't know if they could be related. These are:
(i) When turning on laptop, I arrive to GRUB bootloader where I can select: "Manjaro Linux", "Advanced options for Manjaro Linux", and "Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/nvme0n1p1)". When selecting "Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/nvme0n1p1)" the system tries to boot (Windows/another boot manager?) up but fails and ends up on the GRUB boot-loader again.
(ii) Booting Manjaro works fine however when shutting down, restarting or logging out it gets stuck on a black screen with the keyboard backlight and power button light still on until I press the power button to shut down.
I installed Manjaro following instructions mainly from this link.
During installation process I also did the following:
(a) Changed SSD drive from RAID to AHCI (before installation).
(b) During installation I chose "free drivers".
(c) Installation was getting stuck a few times. I resolved this by adding .
acpi_rev_override=0 to the /etc/default/grub to the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line after
quiet. Then installation run OK.
(d) During installation I created the root, SWAP and efi partitions from Manjaro installer.
(e) Previously (after installation) trying to boot "Windows Boot Manager" from GRUB it sent me to Dell's Support Assist tool where it started checking for hardware problems. After a few boots it said there were no hardware problems. Since then, point (i) above occurs.
I am not sure if "Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/nvme0n1p1)" is the correct image that should be showing up on GRUB? I've seen pictures online where it just says "Windows 10". I have also seen online it is recommended to choose "non-free" drivers during installation?
I have just learnt the technical words for all of this in the past few days so please forgive me if I have got mixed up somewhere.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks beforehand.
