Hi everyone. I need a little help with my laptop boot loop.
I had windows 7 + Manjaro and later this month i’ve decided to go to full Manjaro.
So, I’ve formated my SSD and installed Manjaro from LiveUSB.
After i boot, my laptop goes to infinite loop before GRUB. I tried everything(format not only as MBR but even GPT), I did different partitions and installed boot loader in different places, but nothing helps.
The main problem is, that I can’t use UEFI boot. My laptop got some firmware error, that if you load UEFI it bricks. And there is no new firmware on the official site.
So, the only option for me is to use Legacy Mode.
If anyone can help, that would be great. I just don’t want to go back to Windows.
On old PCs there is some bug with boot flag on bootloader.
Just set boot flag on your boot partition (example: /dev/sda)
You can use Super Grub Disk https://www.supergrubdisk.org/ to boot in system.
And inside system use GParted to set boot flag
Also, you can use terminal for this.
