EDIT: I ended up having to overwrite grub-silent with grub and 'fixed' the issue as I was writing this post. Ideally I want to be able to use grub-silent but at least I can access my laptop again. Going to post anyways in case this helps someone else.
During the installation of grub-silent, grub was removed. When I try to reinstall (grub-silent), I get the following error:
grub-install: error: relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet
I'm currently dual booting Windows 10 and I'm using EFI. My partition setup is as follows:
/dev/nvme0n1p1 (EFI System)
/dev/nvme0n1p2 (Microsoft reserved)
/dev/nvme0n1p3 (Microsoft basic data)
/dev/nvme0n1p4 (Windows recovery environm)
/dev/nvme0n1p5 (Linux filesystem, )
/dev/nvme0n1p6 (Linux filesystem, \home)
/dev/nvme0n1p7 (Linux swap)
I've tried booting an a manjaro liveCD using chroot to install grub and ussed the following original guide.
sudo su mount /dev/nvme0n1p5 /mnt
The guide states to mount the boot partition if it exists (does EFI partition ==boot partition?). I've tried both methods, but still no luck. The rest of this walk-through assumes that there is no separate boot partition.
mount -t proc proc /mnt/proc mount -t sysfs sys /mnt/sys mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev mount -t devpts pts /mnt/dev/pts/ chroot /mnt
At this point my current (chroot)directly is "/".
When I try to use
sudo pacman -S mtools os-prober
I'm not able to resolve the hosts even though I have an active network connection. I managed to fix the issue after finding this guide to set up networking (at this point you are working outside the live environment).
exit cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf chroot /mnt
Then I continued along with the original guide as follows:
sudo mkdir /boot/efi sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /boot/efi sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=manjaro --recheck
However this leads to the following error"
grub-install: error: relocation 0x4 is not implemented yet.
I continued with the guide:
sudo pacman -S efibootmgr dosfstools grub
Here I was asked whether I want to replace grub with grub-silence, since there was a conflict. I accepted and it worked. I was able to install grub and access my computer again.
