rEFInd folder missing and cannot boot into grub after changing distro

Hi everyone, I just switched to Manjaro from Ubuntu. I installed rEFInd back when I was using Ubuntu, but now the folder is missing in /boot/efi/EFI/ while I'm still booting to it. I tried putting Manjaro boot order first but it'll go straight to memtest and say "missing boot image". So, now I'm stuck with rEFInd and can't event change its options :no_mouth:
It would be great if you could help me getting grub working, and find that reEFInd folder so I can figure out what to do with it. Thanks :grin:

Boot into manjaro using [Kernel Boot Method]
{Yes, you can boot into Manjaro without having grub in the installed OS}

When booted, install back refind

sudo refind-install

If you do not have refind package installed in Manjaro (but in Ubuntu)
Install package first before the above command.

sudo pacman -Sy refind-efi 

ps; stop at step 5 if you do not wish to continue with installing grub
But suggest you copy refind_x64.efi to bootx64.efi in the [UEFI Additional Command] section.

ps: I think you do not have the refind folder in manjaro but in ubuntu.
That's alright. Do above.

I booted the system like the kernel method you given and reinstalled grub. Also, turns out there's a Ubuntu boot partition in another drive that I didn't see, I deleted it and refind is gone now. Thank you :grin:
