Unable to boot windows after starting latest installer

Hi, i’m unable to boot into windows 10 1909 enterprise after booting into the manjaro installer. I’ve encountered this problem before when installing ubuntu. Is this a problem with manjaro, the linux kernel, windows or my stupidity?

Hello @pro0110 :wink:

That are very vague information. Maybe check your UEFI Bootloader?

What information do you need? I have not modified the UEFI bootloader in any way.


inxi -Fxza --no-host

Calamares log:

sudo calamares -d

(Should be also available at /var/log/calamares.log or similar)

Check if you booted in EFI or BIOS mode:

test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios

UEFI Entries:

efibootmgr -v


sudo parted -l

Additional information for partitioning:


Please always use this for each output:

terminal output


terminal output

Note: For very long logs like calamares.log, please use an external service of your choice.

My eyes will be greatly thankful :slight_smile:

inxi -Fxza --no-host - Pastebin.com inxi -Fxza --no-host
sudo calamares -d returns sudo: calamares: command not found
/var/log/calamares.log does not exist
Booted into EFI
efibootmgr -v - Pastebin.com efibootmgr -v
sudo parted -l - Pastebin.com sudo parted -l

It would probably be worth saying that i am dual booting manjaro and windows now.

@pro0110 sorry for the late answer. I have not received any notification.

What I see here at least is that Windows was installed first, but i guess in BIOS mode on a GPT partition table (or did you convert it?). Manjaro created a EFI partition, since it was booted in EFI mode. And here is the problem. If Windows has not been installed in EFI mode, then Grub will not find the Windows Bootloader. Both OSs have to be installed with the same mode. BIOS or UEFI.

Hope that makes it clear.
