Dual boot with Win10 - installed from LiveUSB, but can't boot without that USB

Hi all,

just started with Manjaro - seems will stay with it for quite some time!

After playing with the LiveUSB, decided to install it along Win10. I have two hard disks, so installed Manjaro 18.04 on the second one (made new partition during install process).
On reboot, grub kicks in, gives expected options (Manjaro, fallback and Windows), but upon choosing Manjaro (or any fallback), I can't boot into the system unless the LiveUSB is inserted.
I would want it to boot without the LiveUSB inserted. Please let me know how to achieve this.

Thanks,
dome1

P.S.1: I did try reinstalling and upgrading grub to my Windows (UEFI) partition - no luck;
P.S.2: Output of sudo parted -l looks like this:

Hi @dome1, welcome here.

Here is a good step by step description how to install Manjaro in parallel to Win 10. It's probably easier to reinstall than to find the error. Before reinstalling, safe your files and delete the Manjaro partition thoroughly.

Much appreciated! Will follow it through and report back (off to job now).

Cheers!
