I have a laptop with a 11th gen intel chip, and a NVIDIA graphics chip. I have not been able to get Manjaro on any kernel 6 (6.1, 6.2 or 6.3), i always drop to an emergency shell at startup. I’ve tried:
Using an image with kernel 5.15, upgrading to kernel 6.1: got dropped in the emergency shell (kernel 515 still works).
Install using the latest image from Manjaro (kernel 6.1): emergency shell. This option is a little strange, live ISO (linux61) does not see my SSD in disk, and chroot fails as it does not find a linux partition.
I’ve read that 11th gen causes some trouble with kernel > 5, so i tried putting ibt=off while on live iso (manjaro-chroot) on my grub, still no effect.
Tried upgrading all drivers as well, but the results are always the same, emergency shell.
Currently, i have a clean installation using the latest ISO from manjaro, and can only chroot it from a 515 live ISO, where i installed the nvidia package via pacman.
I’m a little lost on what to do, any help would be great!
uname -r on the chroot session is showing kernel 5.15, but the installed system is manjaro 22.1.0 - Talos. mhwd-kernel -li show runnig as 5.15 and installed lists linux61
The cat /etc/lsb-release shows:
Well, i am in chroot O.o
The system still does not boot
The current status is a clean install of 21.1.0 (linux61). This does not boot.
i’m chrooting from a 515 majaro image, since the linux61 ISO does not find my boot ssd
How do you check if the drive is available? Do you use btrfs as the bug that brahma points out?
I have a hard time believing that the drive completely/physically disappears depending on the file system of one of the partitions on it.
Use lsblk -f or fdisk -l to list drives and partitions when you are in the liveUSB with kernel 6.x
Well, i have two SSDs on this system, both PCIe. Only one shows up at a time. Right now the 512GB (The one with the linux) is showing up and i can even chroot into it. The 256 with the windows is absent. Last two times i booted with the liveUSB only the 256 showed up O.o
