Do you use the GRUB from another distro that is based on debian ?

i did, before trying several edition of manjaro i used linux mint (dual booting with windows 10) .

Ok, there might be something to it. The best way is to boot from the Manjaro install media, and "repair" Grub following this:

What iso file did you download? Full name, please and as c00ter asked, is it i686 or x86_64.
And what were the architecture (i686 or x86_64) of your XFCE and KDE.
Are they the same?
It is likely that your gnome is not the right architecture.

You did not reply c00ter. We cannot help further.


Oh, he replied. I had hoped it might promote a bit of user-research but apparently not. A quick Google of the error message, and the overwhelming results, are what caused me to ask.

@OP, you got chocolate in yer peanut butter. So to speak.



i already replied the question . ok, all edition are x86_64 . and that is why i feel confused .
so i try to re-download the GNOME iso . and that is solved my problem . it looks like the file is corrupted :slight_smile:

thank you for your respond guys, i do really appreciate it . i think im gonna end this thread . but i just dont know how to close it :smile:
