Not able to boot Manjaro USB

Lastly there was a similiar problem… One couldn’t install Manjaro with kernels higher than linux54. He was only able to install Manjaro with this iso: manjaro-gnome-19.0.2-200312-linux54. Maybe you have the same issue.

Once installed you can upgrade to the latest version anyway.

I will try both 20.03 and this one. Thanks,

I tried the iso you indicated (not the 20.03) and got the same problem. Could not boot into installer. See attached.


Ok normally it would look like this:

Reached target Graphical Interface.
Starting TLP system startup/shutdown...
Applying power save settings...done.
Setting battery charge thresholds...done.
Finished TLP system startup/shutdown.

So there is a problem with the Powersaving settings, means with the ACPI.

I would suggest to add acpi_osi to tell the UEFI/BIOS that you are running Windows. For the latest Windows 10, it is:

acpi_osi="Windows 2020"

Here is a list:

Try what could fit.

Or run it with


Ok, where do I add this -:slight_smile:

Ok, I tried this and now it get stuck on reached target Graphical Interface. As per attached.

Ok it reached the Graphical interface, so i guess here is the problem newest gpu driver.

Can you switch to another TTY with CTRL + ALT + F1/F2/F3 ?

I would rather advice to install it with Manjaro Architect… The Desktop ISOs with the newest driver don’t work on all Systems, and many especially laptops need workarounds with newer kernels.

After while being here… i must admit: 70% of failed boots of Boot disks are because of laptops.

yes, I can go into a command prompt

Can you type?

journalctl -b -0


journalctl -b -0 --reverse

or if there is a Xorg log:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | less

Maybe there is a hint?

Ok i see now the problem. It looks similar to this one:

But it was a local installation and he fixed it by reinstalling the nvidia drivers. Something is wrong with the config :confused:
Or the configs for the drivers have on this ISO :100: a bug which effect on your system.

Since it is a rolling release, a installation with Architect is recommend.

Could you share your hardware here, just for the record when you are on Ubuntu?
