I’m running the latest version of manjaro that I installed on an SSD where windows had installed its bootloader despite installing the rest of the system on my other HHD (I ******** hate windows so much). I thought this would be ok because I always get a Grub menu at boot any time I install a new distro, but it just boots directly into Manjaro.
I’ve tried updating grub and changing “hidden” to “menu” in the grub config file, but to no avail. Out of ideas here. ty
