Hi, im a new member here and unfortunately a few hours after use, i have a big problem. I hope you all can help me out here.
I bought a new Acer Swift Laptop with no OS installed. I installed manjaro with default settings (complete disk) but with disk encryption.
I previously disabled secure boot to be able to install / boot the usb stick where i flashed manjaro.
But now, when i try to enter BIOS by pressing F2 button, a black screen appears and the whole system stuck. All i can do is to power off, no keystroke recognized.
I was searching around and found people who facing the same problem like me. For example this thread:
But i can’t do what he was doing, i can only enter grub rescue mode and i dont know how to locate the bootx64.efi by using “ls” command. and the other commands like “chainloader” are unknown in grub rescue. And it doesnt matter what i do, i always get the “unknown filesystem” result in grub.
So it seems that that “great” GRUB loader destroyed my only few hour old 500€ Laptop because i dont know how to fix it. Is there no possibillity to wipe the GRUB partition that the BIOS / EFI can load again?
I can use manjaro for now but when somethin goes wrong im not able to install anything new because of the locked BIOS / Boot menu.
How is it possible that such an massive bug that can lead to hardware fail is still not fixed?! @tuxlinux said that this issue persits since 2012.
When there is a solution to enter BIOS or boot from USB again, i would be very thankful because if its not, i can only hope for warranty.
Sorry for bad grammatics, im german, english isnt my native language
