I have an odd problem. Whenever I try to install manjaro from my USB, which I did do ages back, it just takes me to a black screen. It doesnt matter if I select open source drivers or proprietary ones. Always the same result.
It just remains a blackscreen no matter how long I leave it.
Oddly enough when I try to boot back into windows after this it says it cant verify winload.efi and now I cant use windows which… is a bit strange since nothing was installed and nothing even touched the drive windows is on.
Ill admit Im at a loss of what to do. I even tested the iso in a VM just to make sure alls good but when it came to actually installing it seems to not only not work but nuked windows too. The strangest thing is i got windows working yesterday after enough restarts but its the same problem today. So no idea.
Id imagine there might be something that I can do through GRUB command lines but I dont know enough, or anything really, to do much.
Thank you in advance.
PS: Ive dug around and the best I can really guess is when looking at boot options it has “radeon.modeset=1” and amd_ucode.img which makes me think it’s trying to load up an AMD system when I have an Nvidia GPU. Could be completely normal though, I’m not familiar enough to tell.
Just my luck to decide to switch to Manjaro full time and trip over step 0 hah.
