Manjaro Missing From Boot

Hey everyone,

Recently I installed Arch Linux on a separate drive as I wanted to explore it before making the transition from Manjaro (my current primary OS). I also have Windows installed for gaming. Unfortunately, after installing Arch on that separate drive, manjaro and it’s grub option dissapeared. It is very important that I get it back. The last thing I expected was for it to dissapear for an installation on another drive.

I reviewed other articles but none of them seem to make any sense.

Here is some relevant information that may help:

Thank you very much for the time of whomever assists. I look forward to learning this do I don’t have to struggle with it if it happens again. I’m an IT that normally fixes all my own problems but this one is beyond me at the moment.

Manjaro needs its own Grub to boot. If you replaced it with Arch’s, you should boot a Manjaro LiveUSB and put its Grub back from there.

Hey Maycne. How would I just re-add grub? I kmow how installation goes and how to live boot but from there I’m not sure.

I suppose this should do the trick.

sudo update-grub
