After failing to install Xubuntu on a new Acer Spin 1 laptop, and messing up the system boot in the process, I've tried Manjaro and have been successful except for two remaining problems:
I still need the installation usb stick to start it up. From the "Hello" page, if I then choose the option to "find efi" the installed manjaro fires up and then I can dismount and remove the usb stick. New software that I install and data that I add are all still there when I go through that process again. So the installed manjaro is clearly fine, except that it won't boot itself ... if the usb stick is not inserted I get a "No bootable system found" message. How can I get the computer to go straight to the installed system without having to use the usb stick to boot it? Secure boot is disabled.
The other issue is that the touch pad doesn't work properly - it moves the curser but doesn't select anything. A usb mouse works fine. (Sorry if this should have been a seperate topic ... if so, please ignore and just help me with the boot issue.
I'm not a techie and need fairly precise instructions please. Thank you.
