I have been using Manjaro XFCE for quite a while on an Thinkpad X270 without major issues. Yesterday I got my new X13 Gen2 AMD and installed a Lexar 4TB nvme SSD. I first installed Win10 without problems, then I wanted to add Manjaro with Manual partition. BEfore I increades EFI system partition to 1GB. Unfortunately Manjaro didn’t boot. At the end I deleted Win10 and let the Manjaro installer reformat the drive and it still does not worl . Grub seems not to start and I get a Message : Error: Device ÙUID…`not found. Skipping fs … end end up in an emergency shell. I already found the recommendation to set the UEFI to AHCI istead of RAID but unfortunately do not have this option. I am quite desperate. Any ideas? Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
- Grub is hidden by default. Press ESC when booting.
- The error is from the kernel. Problem could be:
- NVME not ready, takes longer than assumed to warm up.
- UUID is wrong.
- I would consider the point 1.
A quick search gave me this: 217863 – Lexar NM790 SSDs are not recognized anymore after 6.1.50 LTS Looks like a timeout issue. Probably kernel 6.5 has the fix now.
thanks a loot for the instant and helpful reply. The mentioned type Lexar 790 is exactly the one I have and after reading this my findings make sense. I tested the Manjaro on another 512 GB SSD which was shipped with the Laptop and here it worked. I also tried with Linux Mint (probably an older kernel) and this also worked fine. So I have to make up my mind if I wait until the patched kernel arrives at Manjaro (any ideas when this might happen) or I return the Lexar SSD and go for another one. When the SSD needs significantly more time to wake up it doesn’t give a good feeling to me and maybe I run into other problems in the future.
Thanks a lot and kind regards, Juergen
