Xfce won't boot with intel-ucode.img

Manjaro 6.1.51-1 “image not found,” with initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img^/boot/initramfs-6.1-x86_64.img.

removing “/boot/intel-ucode^” from boot.cfg allows normal boot.

the current intel-ucode.img exits in the /boot directory.

Any suggestions?

Try rebuilding the images: sudo mkinicpio -P
and for good measure, update the configs: sudo update-grub

Without additional information about your system, this might not be enough.

Thank you, I had tried that…

After looking elsewhere, I found that the error was triggered by the erroneous “^” in the initrd string.

initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-6.1-x86_64.img
works fine…

The error was self-induced, I’m sure, by the replacement of manjaro’s grub with a different distro’s bootloader. This is on a multi-boot system and demonstrates why it’s best not to install multiple linux distros on the same drive (imho, use a vm?), even though in this case the new linux installation, was on an external ssd.
