As above. Booted from live-usb, liked what i saw, installed with encryption, rebooted , got grub rescue prompt. Tried installing without encryption in case it was the culprit (despite needing it, since it's a mobile device) and the exact same result. More than slightly annoying. Been wanting to try Manjaro, but this is not encouraging. Zero issues reported during install, and this laptop (Dell Inspiron 1525) has installed and booted multiple ubuntu variants (Kubuntu, Mint, etc), PCLinuxOS, Fedora, etc, with no real issue, but Manjaro seems to be struggling with this. I'm baffled as to why.
Have tried using suggestions here, but it fails at first step of "
grub> search.file /etc/manjaro-release root", insisting "error: no such device /etc/manjaro-release"
I'm really wanting to try this out on my laptop, but this is making it hard, when it won't do the most basic of tasks (boot). It's sitting behind me after trying yet AGAIN, same error, and i'm on the verge of giving up, but figured asking couldn't hurt. None of the suggestions in the link seem to apply to this, and it won't do even the first damn step right. And yes, I AM double-checking what i type, exactly. Multiple times. Hence the frustration. It works great live, just refuses to boot. Has a 500GB drive all to itself, so NO dual-boot involved. Suggestions?
