Beyond aggravating. Noticed manjaro grub entry vanished booting into windows, tried to restore grub, now wont boot at all, make sit to the manjaro boot and then powers off and restarts the laptop.
- Boot into live usb (I believe in UEFI mode, but this new lenovo has no option, live does have ‘detect UEFI partitions’ which works and shows old manjaro and windows)
- chroot into old system:
$ manjaro-chroot -a grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sda1. Check your device.map. grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sda1. Check your device.map. ==> Mounting (ManjaroLinux) [/dev/nvme0n1p5] --> mount: [/mnt] --> mount: [/mnt/boot/efi]
- run grub install
grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Manjaro Installing for x86_64-efi platform. Installation finished. No error reported.

I believe it’s the last step. When I check out /boot/grub/grub.cfg I don’t see the ‘menuentry’ s I’m expecting. I can fix the /var/lock/dmraid error by cratin that directory. I’m not so worried about
device.map error because my other machine doesn’t have those files. but the
unknown device type nvme0n1 is probably why it cant probe for the windows partition (and I assume the Manjaro one too).
os-probe and grub-probe seem to have similar issues.
Any idea what is gong on here?
