I also get the warning when starting my Manjaro:
error: sparse file not allowed. - press any key to continue booting
I used the search-function and tried
sudo grub-editenv create
and edited /etc/default/grub like this:
**cat** /etc/default/grub #GRUB_DEFAULT="saved" GRUB_TIMEOUT="5" GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Manjaro" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet resume=UUID=e860eca5-9535-45e7-b109-27d415b36e2a" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" # If you want to enable the save default function, uncomment the following # line, and set GRUB_DEFAULT to saved. #GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT="true" # Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed GRUB_PRELOAD_MODULES="part_gpt part_msdos" # Uncomment to enable Hidden Menu, and optionally hide the timeout count #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="5" #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET="true" # Uncomment to use basic console GRUB_TERMINAL_INPUT="console" # Uncomment to disable graphical terminal #GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT="console" # The resolution used on graphical terminal # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo' GRUB_GFXMODE="auto" # Uncomment to allow the kernel use the same resolution used by grub GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX="keep" # Uncomment if you want GRUB to pass to the Linux kernel the old parameter # format "root=/dev/xxx" instead of "root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx" #GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID="true" # Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true" # Uncomment and set to the desired menu colors.

I don't use UEFI.
Manjaro is booting (so same situation like the others having this issue). However, the warning massage still appears. What else could I try?
