Hi, first time trying to setup linux.
Made a bootable USB drive with balena and changed my boot order to the usb drive in bios
Saved bios and tried to boot into the USB and i got a “Secure boot violation” prompt
so I decided to turn off secure boot following instructions from google and it was just me going to my settings tab> security > Trusted Computing and then turning off Secure boot completely as per instructions on MSI forums.
Still no luck same screen comes up, booted back into windows automatically so I decided to give up for now and turn TPM back on because it broke the enter security PIN on windows.
If it’s relevant my motherboard is an MSI B450 mortar max
What do I do now?
(also i was gonna put images here of all the stages and the prompt itself but i got denied so)
The only problem with Windows and Linux being on the same drive is that Windows updates sometimes breaks GRUB which can easily be fixed by updating GRUB when it occurs by booting into Linux and running sudo update-grub in your terminal.
You’re going to need to either press the Boot Menu key and choose Linux or go into your BIOS and change the boot order so that Linux boots first - I suggest the former as it only needs to be done this one time.
I dont have linux even installed to do this, I have a seperate drive so i wont need to worry about that.
My issue right now is that my USB stick is not being booted into i just get a secure boot warning even tho my secure boot is turned off.
Did you copy or did you burn Linux to the stick?
You need to burn it, with a tool like Rufus so that it makes the USB stick a bootable device.
And most modern major Linux distributions don’t have a problem with either Secure Boot or the TPM module being present.
I did, i figured out the issue anyways. You have to go into advanced settings then “windows os” settings and then turn off secure boot from there. I got manjaro now im just trying to figure out what the ■■■■ .tar.gz is and what deb is while trying to install stuff
.tar.gz file is a compressed file. Similar to a .zip file in Windows but using a different type of file compression
A .deb file is yet another type of compressed file, designed for Debian based OS’s, not native to Manjaro but some programs may need support from Debian to work properly.
