Laptop (Asus G750JS) booted well initially today. However, subsequent boots were without success - black screen - maybe hardware issues? Not the first time this has happened, and not just with Manjaro.
I looked at PC Settings to see what’s going on: OS-drive has disappeared from boot order list, the Data-only drive being 1st in the boot list, the DVD-drive 2nd. Therefore, the laptop is trying to boot from my data-drive!
This is a UEFI laptop (made 2014), with Manjaro-xfce installed on an MBR formatted disk, with the laptop's BIOS (CMS) mode enabled .
Maybe I should use a UEFI install (GPT formatted disk) for Manjaro (like the Win8.1 that the machine came pre-installed with) and it might play better.
Any thoughts on this are welcomed. I’ve done a UEFI install before with Ubuntu, so am familiar with procedure.
That’s exactly the problem.
If you searched issues like this.
I’ve said so many times.
Do not mix uefi and bios-legacy
Do not mix gpt and msdos disk
