I used to dual-boot Manjaro with Windows 8.1 and everything worked fine back then, but once I encountered an error with drivers when I forced a shutdown on Windows I decided to wipe Windows and make a clean install of Manjaro. Ever since I'm having several problems booting Manjaro, it takes me 3 or 4 times of forcing a shutdown (which gives me an fsck error in return usually ) to finally get into a working system, and from time to time booting takes incredibly long.
I tried other distros from Antergos/ArchLabs to Debian-based distros as well, unfortunately none of them worked hassle-free. I also tried different kernels (4.18, 4.14), no hope. Maybe it is just my hardware? idk.
This is one of the problematic boots I managed to capture:
Here is the inxi -Fxz output:
