Grub installation failed

Hi, I just got into the new World in Manjaro linux.
I install on my ASUS S510U laptop with dualboot Win10.
After installing the Manjaro linux after partitioning the new free space in my hard drive, I cannot get into manjaro linux because of grub fails.
So I did manjaro linux : restore the grub bootloader
After that, it still doesn’t work out well.
Is there anybody having same problem like me?

A search about it would reveal that there are a few people experiencing issues with grub, but also you would find the fix. Read and apply the method for your particular issue:

Look at this first.
OP has an Asus, not a Lenovo.
Not that serious and hopefully can be fixed without the Asus bios setup.

Hi, and Thanks for suggestion. I also followed all instruction on the post.
But the result didn’t come out…
here’s the log file of the commands
efibootmgr -v
sudo parted -l
sudo blkid
findmnt -s
findmnt /boot/efi
Those are what I did for log

Yup, you did all the commands including the [UEFI - additional commands] at step 6.

Now, further down in “Some difficult UEFI setups”, there is Asus link.
Go there and see if there is anything in the F2 Bios setup for your system that is similar.
It may be possible your Asus setup is slightly different and is so, after figuring out how to get it into the Asus firmware, detail it here so we can link it so others can learn from it.

Cheers.

@dalas
One point I forgot …(sorry)
There’s one more thing you should do.
At Manjaro terminal, please do

sudo efibootmgr -o 0001,0000

Let us know is after reboot , at terminal, provide

efibootmgr

This alone may be sufficient, again, sorry I forgot this first thing to do.

Thanks for keeping the help. I really appreciate on that.
I just did pacman update, and then the manjaro linux could display grep screen when boot up.
Thanks for helping :slight_smile:
