No boot after install?

Install goes OK, but after first boot i get nothing.

Core 2 Duo 3GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB WD, Intel DP35DP mainboard (P35 chipset).

It would be nice to have at least a little more info. :grin: So after your install you boot to grub and then to a blank screen or ???

As this is a fresh install the easiest first option is to try installing again.

I done that, also tried manual partition, nothing worked.

This is essentially the single worst response to a troubleshooting sequence.

You need to provide much more information about what the issue is and what you have tried.

Please read the post linked by @anika200 above and try this again.

Can you try re-installing grub.

hahaha, that is a tall claim. Maybe I start to compile a list. :grin:

No offense meant @filip007 :wink: Please continue with your problem.

OK, fine the worst one is "I've already tried everything, nothing worked." :slight_smile:

I have edited, is that better.

Data is there but somehow boot is not working, not sure what i can do from Live CD.

Yes try to update your system by chroot-ing in and running sudo pacman -Syyu and then restore grub as I already mentioned. It is in the document I already linked too, basically open a terminal and type a couple commands etc...

sudo pacman -S mhwd-chroot
warning: database file for 'core' does not exist
warning: database file for 'extra' does not exist
warning: database file for 'community' does not exist
warning: database file for 'multilib' does not exist
error: target not found: mhwd-chroot

What do you mean "boot is not working"?

You have to be more specific otherwise we're simply guessing what the issue might be.

If English is not an easy language for you, try using Google Translate or posting in your native language in #other-languages.

try this
manjaro-chroot -a

Are you connected to a network when you install?

Yes, i got WiFi.

manjaro-chroot -a

Now i have added Boot flag to sda1 under GParted and now boot is working with grub but file system needs to be fixed, how i do that?

My English is just fine just Manjaro is something special, i have also Win10 on another drive but i have disabled for now, i do dual boot from Bios boot menu, sure if Manjaro worked.

It is already on the live usb so just type sudo mhwd-chroot Once you do that Please move forward with the commands on the wiki to restore grub.
Also please try some things yourself and think and read about the material already presented.

Your commands are not working.

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ sudo pacman -S mhwd-chroot
warning: database file for ‘core’ does not exist
warning: database file for ‘extra’ does not exist
warning: database file for ‘community’ does not exist
warning: database file for ‘multilib’ does not exist
error: target not found: mhwd-chroot
[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ sudo mhwd-chroot
sudo: mhwd-chroot: command not found

I have fix grub by adding boot flag to sda1 with GParted.

File system needs to be fixed how i do that?

Boot from live usb and run gparted and there should be a option to check or repair file system on /sda1
