Hi, I installed Manjaro on two HP Victus
I originally installed Debian on the second one, but W11 made it’s boot entry desapear.
I thus decided to have both on Manjaro (amongst other reasons because the Manjaro dual did seem to stay alive on the other one.
This morning, I finished settings on the W11 part of the second one, then shutdown to start on it’s Manjaro session.
… No Manjaro boot entry anymore !!
The other one is ok (until now…)
How can I recover avoiding full reinstall ?
How can I make sure this doen’t happen again ?
Without a guarantee that it’ll work, boot up from the Manjaro installer medium ─ CD/DVD or USB stick ─ in live mode. Open up a terminal window and then issue the following commands…
sudo su -
Pick your Manjaro installation from the list if you are prompted to do so. Then issue the following commands…
It should now be safe to reboot. However, you may encounter more difficulties if Windows has messed with your EFI variables. Also make sure that Fast Boot and Secure Boot are disabled in the UEFI firmware settings.
I use a Windoze 11 on a Vbox VM, and it works perfectly.
In fact I edited and rendered a 1080p video in Adobe Premiere recently on a 8GB RAM laptop (I know right, what an idiot ), so I would recommend using a VM; that way none of the Windoze garbage will land on your main system.
Unless you need your GPU in Windoze then that may be an issue…
