I installed Manjaro 21.07 over mx Linux 19.4. I used the erase method, but after restarting, I got a blank screen. I couldn’t even get to the system bios. I had to use the live USB to search for EFI bootloader, which seemed to show me two loaders, one clearly being Manjaro. When I select that, I am able to start the laptop.
Typing efibootmgr gives me the following result:
Timeout: 0 seconds BootOrder: 0009,0001,0000,0003,0007,0008 Boot0000 Windows Boot Manager* Boot0001 manjaro* Boot0003 MX19* Boot0007 Solid State Disk* Boot0008 USB Drive (UEFI) - SanDisk* Boot0009 USB Drive (UEFI) - SanDisk*
I’m a noob to linux, so please be a bit patient with dumb sounding questions.
Thanks for the help!
Try to boot into the “system BIOS” of your laptop. That should be possible at all times. Depending on the brand that may be reached with the F2 or F8 or ?? -key while booting. Look for Boot Options and there select manjaro. Then “Save and Exit” or something similar.
Thanks for your help, @megavolt an @hans . I just remembered that even on mx Linux, whenever I kept my mouse connected, it would not boot. The same thing happens here on Manjaro. As soon as I unplugged my mouse, it worked. Thank you guys so much for assisting me I did manage to learn a few more things.
