Hey guys. I just finished a Manjaro/Windows10 dual boot set up on my Thinkpad W541. Everything went well except I ran into a strange problem.
Whenever I boot up the system, instead of the GRUB menu showing up on screen, it’s stuck at the Lenovo logo. However, I can confirm that GRUB is indeed running in the background (despite the display being stuck at the Lenovo logo) because I can still interact with it via my keyboard. For example, if I press “Enter”, it boots straight into Manjaro; and if I press the “Down” key and then “Enter”, it boots to Windows 10. This shows that GRUB is running, just that the menu interface isn’t showing.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet apparmor=1 security=apparmor resume=UUID=2bc98e71-4074-46c4-9ac5-1211bafa25e6 udev.log_priority=3"

I’m fairly new to linux, so it would be great if someone can help me out.
I did. The first thing I did after the installation is edit the grub file and then run update-grub. After that I rebooted and saw the screen stuck at the Lenovo logo. I thought something broke, but then I pressed enter and it boot straight to manjaro in 2 seconds. That was when I suspected that GRUB menu is already running, just that I can’t see it on the display. I rebooted again and pressed the down key and then enter. Indeed, it booted into windows.
