I want to really badly go over to Manjaro but i keep ■■■■■■■ up the install. Iwe used possibly every other distro but Manjaro is the one i want to have. But my rig really hates it. Just to put it in perspective iwe used over 20h just to INSTALL IT. AND I FAILED. If anyone is botherd to tell me how to Dual boot when Grub2 doesnt install on the UEFI BIOS i have would be lovely. Iwe tried launching it from Windows with FreeBSD even, but it seems to be the GRUB doesnt install correctly because i cant find boot.img/grub.img . I might have nothing with it.
I am a intermideate user of linux and i know alot about it.
And after the install with no error it just boots with windows boot.
And often when booting into the USB with manjaro on it (16.06-pre3 KDE) It would just freeze on me. And when the usb was plugged in when i went into the bios it would just freeze up on me. Iwe turned off secure boot and fast boot. Im not certain why this is happening. ON MY LAPTOP AND VIRTUALBOX WITH THE SAME USB everything went all good. So nothing wrong with the iso.
GTX980ti (using non-free drivers)
ASUS ROG VII RANGER
1x 250gb ssd (Where i want to dual boot) and 1x 3tb Hdd (steam libary and such)
I found this article http://www.howtogeek.com/193669/whats-the-difference-between-gpt-and-mbr-when-partitioning-a-drive/
It tells me exatly what i wanted to know about what GPT and UEFI and all that means.
I do NOT have Windows7. The Computer had Windows 8/8.1 and upgraded to Windows10. I do not know why it is in MBR mode AND I WANT GPT.
Iwe had Issues because my PC is installed NOT in UEFI but MBR.
If anyone reads up on this, the simple fix is to use the (the one with green backgound on boot) BUT BE CERTAIN that it is MBR and not UEFI/EFI.
