Window os not showing in bootloader

hello . i dual booted my laptop with windows 8 and manjaro . first the boot loader wasn’t showing which i solved using sudo nano /etc/default/grub , timeout_style = menu , sudo update grub … but windows is not showing in the bootloader …

boot loader shows
1 . manjaro linux
2. manjaro advanced option
3. UEFI settings
4. memory testing

plss help

Use the same method and check/change the setting of:

is your Windows also installed in UEFI mode, like Manjaro appears to be?
It would make sense to use the same method for both, IMO.

in the settings of grub it shows

Uncomment this option to enable os-prober execution in the grub-mkconfig comm>


  1. yes windows is installed in UEFI mode

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

sollicitudin dolor
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.

Instead of like this:

Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

For more information, please see:

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

This is how you wrote it:

which means it is already uncommented
and os-prober should run and detect your Windows installation.
Why it doesn’t I have no idea.
Post hardware info (inxi -Fazy for instance)

would be commented (the # sign in front)
