Hi all guys, thanks in advance for the great work on the distro. I’ve got my fresh 20.0.3 xfce iso a couple of days ago and I’m trying to set up a shiny dual boot config with windows beside manjaro. I’ve installed win10 already and to make everything work properly I’ve also shrinked my nvme drive (from win10 disk manager) to free 128 gigs for manjaro. When I boot into the live to start calamares everything goes smooth, installation process ends well but for some reason the grub entry in boot menu is never created properly.
This is not the main thing really, because from bios I can set my path to .efi file so I can have my manjaro entry in boot priority. I’ve also followed a couple of tutorial from the archived forum such as
and even if the system works after a couple of reboots the system nukes the kernel. I suppose it is the kernel because in the first start after installation everything is fine and when I have my
sudo pacman -Syyu it replaces the 5.6.x.y kernel (the one which comes with the latest iso available today 20/08) - which is not supported, according to what Manjaro Kernel Manager says - with the latest one and then stops working. I’ve also tried 4.19, 5.4 and many more (no-LTS and LTS as well) but the system wont start in any way and even if i get everything up and running (grub&kernel) always after a couple of reboots the
grub rescue pops up with apparently no reason.
I’m really in trouble with this situation because I need to use some proprietary software on windows but the main core of my job is much more fast on linux. Any ideas?
I have an acer aspire a515-44g with a ryzen renoir 4500u and a western digital nvme. Another strange thing: if I play too much with partitions, boot and bios, the bios itself freezes and when I press f2 the pc is stuck on acer logo. To make it work again I must force it into bios by removing my nvme and any bootable drive
PS. bootable usb made with rufus on windows using gpt partition scheme because the pc is obviously uefi and so is win10
