Manjaro KDE doesn't boot after uefi install


i’m not a beginner in linux and i use manjaro since ~ 2 years now. I had installed all desktop environments a few times. Today i wanted to install Manjaro KDE. I did it, like i always do.

(secure boot disabled)

Boot in UEFI usb drive
1000mb FAT32 /boot/efi partition with “boot” flac
55gb ext4 / partition with “root” flac
16gb swap partition
440gb ext4 /home partition

After successfull install, i shutdown and removed the usb stick.

I tried different usb devices, installed it 5 times, but always the same problem.

My system doesn’t boot.
“Reboot and select proper boot device” is only showing.

2 weeks ago, i installed manjaro kde and 1 week ago i installed manjaro xfce successfully.

I hope you can help me. Thank you in advance.

can you boot on USB live iso
open a terminal and reports

inxi -Fza
sudo parted -l
test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
sudo efibootmgr -v

recheck all option in Bios to get only EFI for manjaro
( save before a profile for windows )

disable secureboot
disable fastboot
no CSM or Legacy
choose UEFI only or first or others ( not windows )
disks on AHCI
no optane RST
