I just did a fresh install of Manjaro 18.1.5 KDE Plasma, and can't get it to boot. I also have Windows and Mint installed and they still work without any problem. After selecting Manjaro from the Grub menu I get sent back to the Acer splash screen where it just hangs indefinitely.
Acer Aspire E5-575G-57D4
CPU: Intel I5-7200U
Graphics: GeForce 940MX 2GB
Memory: 8GB DDR4
1x 250GB SSD (Contains the boot partition)
1x 500GB HDD ( Contains swap and OS)
I installed everything through the GUI. I set up my own partitions as follows:
/dev/sda5 as root
/dev/sda3 as swap
/dev/sdb4 as /boot/efi
While the partition layout may be a bit screwy, it hasn't given me any trouble with other OS or distro.
Some things I've tried:
1.) Made sure secure boot is disabled.
2.) Reinstalled with a fresh iso
3.) Ritual Sacrifice
4.) Using chroot to get into the OS partition and running Pacman -Syyu. It was successful but nothing changed.
5.) Reinstalling grub with grub-install and update-grub from both my Mint install and within manjaro-chroot.
I'm at a bit of a loss on this one. Does anybody have a clue as to what's going on?
