sudo update-grub


Works only if Manjaro is uefi

Oh, right. Assumptions and all that...

If Manjaro is installed in bios mode you'll have to either reinstall in uefi mode or keep things the way they are and boot windows from the bios/boot menu.

If Manjaro and Windows are both installed as uefi then see my first post.


I'm pretty sure this comes up once every day...

if you get to the point where you don't mind losing your files, you could try reinstalling windows 10, I understand that manjaro starts correctly, you would have to enable AUR packages in pacman, compile and install WoeUsb, download windows 10 from its official website, and at create the bootable usb uses the option of formatting usb in NTFS for UEFI (GPT), the option formatting usb in fat32 works for me only for BIOS LEGACY (MBR).

inxi output indicates Manjaro is booted in UEFI mode.
