Hello guys,

I have installation problem with manjaro budgie. I created my usb boot from iso that i downloaded from manjaro.org then prepared with dd command;

dd bs=4M if=manjaro-iso-file.iso of=/dev/mydevice status=progress && sync

then when i try to boot usb it stucks at booting screen. I uploaded the screen shoot. I tried different usbs and different releases always same problem.

Thanks in advance.

did you boot from UEFI or standard/MBR?, and yes it makes a difference, sry but gotta ask, and we’ll take it from there.
I don’t use budgie, so may be not be much help,but lets start with the basics:
post your (within a Terminal):
inxi -FG
lsblk

My notebook has legacy bios so probably boot from standart/MBR. Here is your what you want:

Manjaro Live USB doesn't boot
#4

At first glance, everything looks great, Manjaro-Budgie-17.0.1 should boot up fine, since obviously your LinuxMint is installed and working properly.
Intel/Radeon iGPU also should not have any problems booting/installing graphically.
Did you try it booting with, for example, a “Current” Manjaro Xfce, or other manjaro release ?, just to isolate the problem from other manjaro iso releases.

#5

I tried every release of manjaro same problem and I don’t want to install old release and install updates because it takes a lot of time. Btw, I tried other distributions with dd they all worked fine. However, I want to install manjaro and use it. Is there any way to jump into live cd ? I mean with manuel conf?

#6

Could someone help me ? I do not know what to do and I want to install manjaro but It doesn’t show grub menu. Please guys.

#7

Same problem here, it’s a pain in the ass !
UP !

#8

The same for me

#9

Same issue here, tried everything different flash drives, Rufus dd nothing just stuck on the same screen.

I can’t help but notice the two computers listed have an HP BIOS. I’d be surprised if the problem wasn’t here.

This may indicate a bug in the current grub configuration that ships with Manjaro live iso, caused by HP tendency to plant all sorts of proprietary or non-standard nonsense in their hardware. And all the more so on their laptop lines of products, where they really go wild and drunk.

It would be great if the maintainers could grab a hold of an HP circa 2011/13, or could guide @Gargoyle through the needed steps to debug this problem.


@Gargoyle, any updates to that BIOS of yours online? 10/05/20011 seems too old for a sandy bridge BIOS. That date indicates a first generation SB BIOS. And it no doubt has seen a couple of updates in the meantime.

#11

@rahtgaz this is the latest update, I haven’t tried any modded ones from bios-mods.com. Worth mentioning that I stumbled upon Grub issues installing Manjaro reddit in which Akeo the author of Rufus explains what might potentially be the issue we are facing.

I know my laptop is ancient but running on a SSD breathed some life in it :slight_smile:. Also a lot of other distributions work out of the box on the same flash drive that I mainly use to boot as well as W10. I am currently running F26 with no issue at all.

Thanks for the follow up :slight_smile: I hope to be running Manjaro soon :smiley:

Note: The latest bios softpaq

Note 2: The drivers and BIOS page for my laptop

#12

@rahtgaz Found a UEFI update under the bios tools section :smiley:.

I am going to try it, hopefully the next reply will be on Manjaro :wink:

#13

@rahtgaz :frowning: misread the HP support site, only UEFI diagnostics but no actual bios.
