As mentioned in the title I am attempting to install Manjaro(gnome) onto my windows UEFI machine, Attempting to boot the live USB, I do get to the grub environment but (only if I write it in DD mode on Rufus, which I think is a limitation of grub).
Attempting to boot into the environment, is another case since it would always get stuck at 'Starting User Manager For UID 1000'. My previous installation of Ubuntu went fine if I set nomodset on the boot parameters, and there wasn't any need for that on updating the kernel, which is weird since Manjaro should use the latest version. I tried setting radeon.modeset and nouveau.modeset, and another value to be = 0 when attempting to boot but it still gets stuck on the aforementioned, thus the cause for making a post here.
I believe the problem is in gdm, but as I mentioned before, it did work fine on Ubuntu
EDIT:- I used one of the beta builds, xfce to be exact, I do get an absolutely garbled screen but it works, I'll attempt an install later.
