UEFI ScreenBoot problem

Is it only on boottime, or are you unable to start manjaro?
Also

inxi -F

would be nice

Your text also looks blurry (unless your camera shot is meh :joy:)

Try setting grub resolution at 1024x768

set gfxmode=1024x768x32
set gfxpayload=1024x768x32

text already blurry
with r without camera :joy:
ok i’ll try that now
but my screen resolution is
1366x768
can i change your value ???

Sure.

See these lines in /etc/default/grub ?

GRUB_GFXMODE=auto
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep

Change to

GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x32
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1024x768x32

Then save file and

sudo update-grub

Reboot and see if it helps.

i add your value
and it’s work
but when i changed it to 1366x768*32
blurry screen return again
why manajro doesn’t have splash screen on uefi mode like linux mint ??

First, 1366x768 is not a grub resolution at grub> videoinfo; 1024x768 is.
Second, for uefi boots’, motherboard manufacturers (except gigabyte?) have agreed to use 1024x768 as their bios gui resolution and grub in uefi has adopted it as well.

As to why it works in LM and not in Manjaro, I cannot answer this as I use my own grub.
As long as you found the answer in Manjaro forum, I think that answers for the trustworthiness of Manjaro.

hold the shift down and grub should come up full resolution. UEFI doesn’t send this information to the bootloader.
Linux Mint, like other Ubuntu based distributions, use a method of booting with grub that work around this issue.

how can build my own grub to …?

is the new kernel can solve this problem …?

i set resolution to 1024x768
and it work

Yes I know. There is also the I915resolution hack (package).
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB/Tips_and_tricks#915resolution_hack
http://915resolution.mango-lang.org/

but this is no longer needed in newer releases of ubuntu since their intel driver now includes this hack.

The problem with uefi and native resolutions is a much deeper issue though.

Here. But I don’t think it would be suitable for you if you have 2 or 3 OS’s only; and since it is working for you now.

No, it has nothing to do with kernels; and Ubuntu (and LM) ‘method of booting’ just use upstream grub and packages and don’t need to ‘work around’ ‘this issue’. Same as they did not need to do anything in grub to boot intel-ucode “early” {Another cognitive dissonance}.

Um NO, Debian and Ubuntu patch the hell out of grub2:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2/+changelog
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2

These are changelogs in Ubuntu versions numbers and are listed whenever changelogs in upstream packages are effected.
These are numerous similar changelogs for upstream grub packages as well. (yes, these are changelogs for v 1.98; couldn’t find search for changelogs v 2.02). Here one listing changes between 2.00 and 2.02.

But granted, distros do change packages, like Debian/Ubuntu for shim and secure boots. Anyway, I understood your point, and hopefully you, mine. Also much OT for the OP. Perhaps I’m miffed about the FUD that intel-ucode does not boot up ‘early’ in other distros, but that is another story.

Also make sure you try to switch to a newer kernel (4.14) and are usung the -prime config, not the bumblebee one in mhwd. This could also be a reason for broken KMS-init.

@gohlip @anon35400795
i use prime config not bumblebee
but newer kernel 4.14 make kernel panic and break distro

what did you mean by that ?

That is a question for @anon35400795, not for me.
But as I said, this issue has nothing to do with kernels.

And I repeat, since you we have resolved it with setting resolution to 1024x768x32 at grub, why are we still mucking around for?

not try to making around for
but
i still confused about splash screen
auto resolution it full screen 1366x768
and blurry on the top edge
as pic said
i just make resolution low 1024x768
the blurry is hidden
and i feel boot take less time just feeling
that is the point
but what is making me still confused is
why manjaro logo and progress bar not appear
like boot on bios !!

Repeating.

Goodbye.
