Manjaro doesnt boot after installing

I've just install the last version from the web site (with kde) and after rebooting the os doesnt start up. At the begging it is loading but after a while the white cursor is starting to blink fast. When I entered to alt + ctrl + f2 the new screen and the previous one started to flicker. Well I guess there is something wrong with the nvidia drivers because before I had the some issues like this after installing Arch. I have intel gpu and nvidia 740M. How can I solve this problem?

So you wouldn't even get to tty?
I'm not an expert in the topic but usually when someone answers, it attracts other users :wink: and probably our forum veterans have missed your topic somehow.

Try and reinstall it maybe on of boot file wern't coppied properly or try on reflsh the iso to the usb on a different type of hardware then reinstall

Try in TTY to start sddm

sudo systemctl start sddm

If it fails report the errors and try startx
If it fails report the error.
What gpu driver is installed?

mhwd -li

If you can't get to TTY , use Grub menu edit like this

Some info would help

inxi -SMGxxxz

Here is the output from inxi -Fxxxz

I already tried this and same issue.

There are several topics on dual graphic cards.
Search for it and perhaps these can help you.
If you still need help, suggest you start a new topic with"Multiple graphic cards" in the header so it gets the correct attention. "Doesn't boot" is not a good topic header for what you try to achieve.

Good luck.

Boot to TTY and update your system, install a newer kernel.

Well, I fuxed this issue. Just do not ask how. :smile: I was thinking all the time that I missed something during the installation and I was right. I wanted to use my old partitions from the previous distribution and that is why I used manual partitioning and thought that the formating is automatic. Just didnt see that there is ''keep' and 'format'(the 'keep' was select). :smile: This isnt even for the 'newbie corner' this is next level.
Btw thank you all for your time.
