I’m trying to install Manjaro on my portable hard drive, but it keeps failing when installing grub. Here is my setup. I’m booted into the manjaro live USB (manjaro 21.0.7) from a 16 GB HD. The host machine is a Macbook Pro 2019. The drive I’m trying to install on is a 1TB nvme SSD connected directly via USB-C. Internet access is provided via USB tethering with my iphone.
- Originally tried to install along side windows using the graphical installer and the install alongside option.
- Tried installing along side windows by manual partition method
- Formatted the hard drive and tried installing via the graphical installer
- Formatted the hard drive and installed using the command line only, following this guide
In every case it fails while installing grub. When doing it via the command line, I can see that grub hangs up at
executing efibootmgr -c -d /dev/sdb -p 1 -w -L Manjaro -l \EFI\Manjaro\grubx64.efi. There’s no error, it just hangs up there.
