I am trying to do fresh installation of manjaro xfce 18.0.4 on my samsung laptop with core i3 2nd gen with integrated graphics, earlier this laptop had windows 10, i have done following things...
-disabled fast startup before installing windows
-deleted windows partition and installed manjaro
-checked iso of manjaro before installing
-used rufus 3.5 to make live usb( DD mode)
-tried installation manually as well as erasing the whole disk
-after successfull installtion, on rebooting sytem is not starting up, i am attaching the screenshot of what its showing on bootup
- on selecting HDD, nothing happens
-followed the steps given on this page but it didnt work
Using livecd v17.0.1 (and above) as grub to boot OS with broken bootloader
- i used other linux distros also and same thing happens , only ubuntu is working and booting properly
dont know if i have provided all the needed info, please ask and help to get it started.
SOLVED: had to flag the partition to 'boot' using gparted
