Manjaro, btrfs, root volume, not working

Manjaro boot, btrfs…

I wanted to move all of my datas and system to an another ssd, everything went fine, except the boot.

I’m using btrfs, the system boots up when the / dir is on another ssd…

Is there any way, to set / dir to another drive/partition ?

What i tried:
fstab – no effect.

manjaro-chroot - freezes , or at least 6 hours isnt enough to finish the job

Hi and welcome to the Forum :+1:

You need to check both your bootloader config and kernel command line used, and most likely also your fstab.
They are all used in combination with your /

Please also read all links, and act accordingly, mentioned in these threads:

Two different pieces of advice (I have no experience with btrfs):

I can't run manjaro-chroot on vm with brtfs filesystem - #2 by brahma

says that manjaro-chroot can’t be used on btrfs
but rather the manual method as, for instance, described in the Arch Wiki.

chroot - ArchWiki

and then there is this:

Computer won't boot after Kernel update - #10 by stephane

mentions a different method.

I don’t know whether either one or which one is correct.

HTH nonetheless!

What can be wrong ?

  • boot-info in your UEFI(Bios)
  • grub.cfg in …/grub/
  • fstab in /etc of your root-partition

If you want someone to be able to help you, you need to explain what you allready did. (and to provide inxi)

You can also use maxi -eg

to collect information about the boot process. This works,

  • when you are in your running system (with CTRL+ALT+F2).
  • And also in a live environment
