Stuck at /dev/sdb2 when booting

I am running KDE Plasma
Output of mhwd-kernel -li

Currently Running: 5.17.1-1-rt17-Manjaro (linux517)
The following kernels are installed

so uninstall the 517:
sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux517-rt
install normal 517:
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux517
systemctl reboot
and also did you change something in bios?

I installed the linux517 kernel and it still stuck at Reached graphical interface
I did change some stuff in the bios but that was a month ago so i don’t think it matters now

can you check in bios if secure boot is disabled, also disable RAID and enable AHCI …
also what is the output from these commands:
test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
sudo efibootmgr -v

Secure boot and raid were already disabled and AHCI was already enabled
For test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios it says efi

For sudo efibootmgr -v

looks good, try deleting the /xauthority file:
rm /home/yourusername/.Xauthority - replace ‘yourusername’ with your actual user name, then reboot:
systemctl reboot

that doesn’t have seem to fixed it but I have to go rn, i’ll brb in about an hour and 30 mins

all right when you back could you post output from:
journalctl --boot=0 --priority=3 --no-pager

and when did it started to happen? did you install something, uninstall, changed settings, etc…?
also try running upadate with: pamac update

I installed the NVIDIA drivers and then rebooted. That’s all I can remember

all right post output from:
find /etc/X11/ -name "*.conf"


all right so remove these:
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nouveau.conf
systemctl reboot

thanks so much

were not done, now lets install the nvidia drivers again:
sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300
then reboot and post output from:
mhwd -li

> Installed PCI configs:
                  NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE
          video-nvidia            2021.12.18               false            PCI
           video-linux            2018.05.04                true            PCI

Warning: No installed USB configs!

ok since you have only nvidia card use only nvidia drivers, so remove those linux drivers with:
sudo mhwd -r pci video-linux
then reboot
and thats it, youre good to go


cool, thanks for the help
