I tried to install Manjaro-openbox dual boots with Windows 10 on a partition I have created for linux. Let’s call my Window 10 partition as p1 and a partition I am intended to install Manjaro as p2.
Before I try to install Manjaro, I installed another distros, use them for a while, then I tried to replace it with Manjaro. This is where my grub related problem started (at least it is the first point I’ve noticed).
When I turned my laptop on, it was supposed to give me OS choices between Manjaro and Windows 10, but instead the screen displayed:
enter grub rescue: grub_file_filters not found
I tried fix it according to what I found on internet. I found that many suggested the problem might came from using a corrupted live usb to install and talked about burning a better one and replaced it with a better one. I tried that several times, changed usb, re-writed a new one, re-formatted and re-written the reused usb to install Manjaro. None of them success so I erased the partition and tried again. This time still the same.
I can access Windows 10 or live Manjaro-openbox when I plug-in the live usb, but once I remove the usb, I can access none and the error (the one in the topic) shows up.
I have to say that even though I have been using linux for quite a while, fixing something is still not my strong criteria so I am going to need a thorough explanation. I started using linux for its powerful command line and trying to find the one that is easy enough to use (and learn to use) and able to fix it when I run into problems from information I find on internet (wiki or community or else).
P.S. My laptop has NDVIA graphic card, but I have never really use it. I thought it was a default graphic card, but a while ago I found that it has its own app to run it. I am not sure where is the program now because I can’t find it - not sure that I might even delete it - accident or not, so I have tried to install Manjaro both free and non-free version. Both work just fine in live system mode. If there is anything wrong with any of them, I obviously did not notice any. My point is I am not sure that having a NVDIA graphic card plays a part in my problem or not. And since I have just found out that NVDIA was not the default graphic card so I assumed my graphic card has always been Intel and because I don’t really use it, I am not sure my device is under NVDIA hardware category or NVDIA hardware that need a special treatment when using with linux (I saw some info state that some old NVDIA machine worked just fine with Manjaro free version and apparently I don’t know if mine is in this group).
