I'm new on Linux, use Manjaro KDE Plasma 5, and made dual boot of manjaro and my windows 10. But when I restarted the pc to end the installation it booted directly in windows. Then I went into my BIOS and selected to boot the entire hd, it was selected just the windows partition, and it booted the Manjaro but the grub didn't showed up anytime. So if someone knows how to configure the grub, I think it's installed because in one of my pc boots the grub appeared showing just majaro options and before that it never appeared again.
Use Shift during boot to activate the grub menu.
Or - as root - edit these lines in the file /etc/default/grub to read
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Press F2yEnter to save the changes and reboot.
Thanks, I'm going to do that now, just arrived at home.
If I press shift the windows option doesn't appear to be selected what could I do?
Please post the output of
sudo parted -l
to give the forum some idea about your disk set-up.

here it is
my problem now is more that i don't have the option to boot into my windows 10 in the grub menu
sudo os-prober say? Does it capture Windows Boot Manager?
it's saying nothing
[dna@dna-pc ~]$ sudo os-prober [sudo] password for dna: [dna@dna-pc ~]$
Please post the output of
ls -l /boot/efi/EFI
(and yes, the first efi must be lowercase; the second EFI is all uppercase.)
[dna@dna-pc ~]$ ls -l /boot/efi/EFI ls: cannot access '/boot/efi/EFI': No such file or directory [dna@dna-pc ~]$
sudo ls -l /boot/efi/EFI
I forgot that /boot/efi is readable only by root.
My suspicion is that you might have installed Manjaro in Legacy/MBR/CSM mode while your Windows is installed in UEFI mode. To have more info to work with, please post the output of the following commands:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS
[dna@dna-pc ~]$ sudo ls -l /boot/efi/EFI [sudo] password for dna: ls: cannot access '/boot/efi/EFI': No such file or directory [dna@dna-pc ~]$
[dna@dna-pc ~]$ [ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS BIOS [dna@dna-pc ~]$ findmnt /boot/efi [dna@dna-pc ~]$
As @Marte suspected, you installed Manjaro in MBR/CSM mode while Windows is installed in UEFI mode. You can fix this by booting the Manjaro ISO in UEFI mode and following the UEFI instructions to reinstall GRUB.
could you give me a hint about how to do that, as i said before i'm new in the linux world. And now I'm kinda lost in that UEFI and MBR/CSM thing
I linked an entire wiki article. Can you be more specific as to which part you need a hint?
I edited my reply, it's about the UEFI and MBR/CSM thing
If you want to take the easy way out ( and if this is a new install) just reinstall Manjaro in UEFI mode. Disable Legacy/CSM mode in your firmware settings and boot up your Manjaro live usb in UEFI mode. For the installation follow the instructions in the User Guide. Scroll down to page 56, read and follow the instruction carefully to replace your current Manjaro partition and choose the EFI system partition:
1 1049kB 683MB 682MB fat32 EFI system partition boot, esp
as the location for the installation of the bootloader. Good luck!
