Manjaro crashes on Boot, unless GRUB Menu is used

Upon booting Manjaro, no message pops up and crashes my PC, oddly enough, when booting through the GRUB menu, it works perfectly fine, how do I get it to boot normally again without having to open the GRUB menu? I’m relatively new in Manjaro and Linux, by the way.

Here is my system info with:

Can you post /etc/default/grub ?

Turns out using Timeshift to create a snapshot and using it to restore the snapshot makes it boot back normally.

Anyways, thanks for trying to help, but my PC works without any issues now.

Edit: Nope, still same problem, anyways here it is:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet apparmor=1 security=apparmor udev.log_priority=3"

# If you want to enable the save default function, uncomment the following
# line, and set GRUB_DEFAULT to saved.

# Uncomment to disable submenus in boot menu

# Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed
GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="part_gpt part_msdos"

# Uncomment to enable booting from LUKS encrypted devices

# Uncomment to use basic console

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command 'videoinfo'

# Uncomment to allow the kernel use the same resolution used by grub

# Uncomment if you want GRUB to pass to the Linux kernel the old parameter
# format "root=/dev/xxx" instead of "root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx"

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries

# Uncomment this option to enable os-prober execution in the grub-mkconfig command

# Uncomment and set to the desired menu colors.  Used by normal and wallpaper
# modes only.  Entries specified as foreground/background.

# Uncomment one of them for the gfx desired, a image background or a gfxtheme

# Uncomment to get a beep at GRUB start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

# Uncomment to ensure that the root filesystem is mounted read-only so that
# systemd-fsck can run the check automatically. We use 'fsck' by default, which
# needs 'rw' as boot parameter, to avoid delay in boot-time. 'fsck' needs to be
# removed from 'mkinitcpio.conf' to make 'systemd-fsck' work.
# See also Arch-Wiki:

try this first:
bot to linux, open a terminal and run this 2 commands:

sudo update-grub
sudo mkinitcpio -P

and reboot. please report if there is any change

I have a dual boot system Linux/Windows 10 and GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden is set to show.

Yep, it boots normally now, thanks!
I’ll report if I noticed any more changes related to this.
