I downloaded the latest Manjaro-Gnome 64 bit, and used Rufus to set up a bootable USB.
I shut down Windows 10, and entered BIOS to boot from the USB
A screen came up permitting the option between free and proprietary, I have tried both but neither affect the outcome
After selecting free/proprietary, a bunch of text runs by before the screen goes all black, with horizontal white line cursor at top left. Anything I type is immediately cleared.
After looking around on the internet, I have tried Ctrl + Alt + F2, Ctrl + Alt + F3, and F7, but they do not work.
Ctrl + Alt + F3 will flash a "Welcome to Manjaro, username ‘manjaro’ password ’ manjaro’ " screen, but it is immediately cleared.
I switched off Fastboot in Windows, after trying to run the Manjaro installer again, the same problem occurred.
I looked throughout the entire BIOS, but couldn’t find a Secure boot setting. After looking online, maybe it isn’t present because the boot mode is in Legacy+UEFI, or maybe because Windows was “installed in EFI mode”?
