I messed up my old copy of Manjaro so I decided to reinstall it. My Windows 7 (ThinkPad x230) was running till now, but after I deleted the old Manjaro Partitions and reinstalled them (one root / with ext4, one boot/efi fat32 (500MB) with esp and boot flags), I am stuck in GRUB rescue.
So I used my Manjaro live-usb and followed the advice on this website: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Restore_the_GRUB_Bootloader
I first followed the Guide for BIOS systems using
as sda3 is listed by lsblk -f as vfat.
The respond is the following:
#Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
#grub-install: error: cannot find EFI directory.
As Im a Newbie I just decided to go for the following UEFI guide and voila, all seemed to work well. But when I restarted the system I was stuck in GRUB rescue again.
So I started following this advice: https://askubuntu.com/questions/192621/grub-rescue-prompt-repair-grub
I used ls to find out that (hd0,4) is my root, but I dont know which one is GRUB. So I tried many variations but I am always stuck as soon as I type
grub rescue>insmod normal
grub rescue>insmod linux
So this gives me an unknown filesystem - again.
I hope anybody can help, thank you.
