Hi. I know that there are a lot of posts like this on the forum, but I have searched and found only one case slightly similar to this - it did not help.
I have the latest stable Manjaro KDE on a USB stick, and it won’t boot on my computer. It only shows “GRUB” on a black command prompt screen. And that is the absolute first thing that appears on the display after selecting the boot device from the BIOS menus.
Tried on USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports; tried on a USB 3.0 and 2.0 stick; unplugged all USB and SATA devices so Grub wouldn’t get confused; checked the SHA1 of the downloaded ISO; installed on the stick using Etcher on OS X or plain dd on Ubuntu.
The laptop has an Intel SandyBridge Core i5-2410M (pre-UEFI). The USB stick works perfectly fine on another first-gen i7 Mobile laptop - using it right now.
What can I do to understand what is going wrong? Thank you for the help
