Hi guys !
I've been a Manjaro convert for a little over a year, and I love it. I convinced a few people around to get onboard as well, it truly is the most amazing distro available right now.
I dual boot on Windows, mostly for some picky games that don't run well on Proton, but I usually don't have the time for gaming and I can't remember the last time I used it ... until last night, when, after a 250+ hours long work streak (SANS course + Django project for work), I felt like my head was about to burst and decided to take some time off. I booted Windows 10 for the first time in forever, and played video games for 4 hours straight.
This morning, I start the computer, go make coffee, and come back to a black screen. No can work. Panic mode engaged. Did Win10 screw up my dual boot?
I start with the usual, live USB, chroot, repair Grub, everything looks fine, all my files are there, decrease DEFCON level, but still no boot.
I stumble for a couple hours, and finally realize that the problem was fsck during boot (trimmed /etc/fstab/, disabled fsck for non essential partitions, all fine for now).
That is the first part of the problem: why did a boot of Win10 triggered fsck?
My second issue is the black screen. I get no output at all during Manjaro boot process. This has been going on for a while, but didn't matter that much to me before.
I'm running a dual CG setup, with, I assume, proprietary NVidia drivers, and, during the boot process, my screen is blank. I can see a few lines of the usual boot log for a split seconds, then black screen for about 5 seconds, then login screen of Gnome.
That black screen issue prevented me from troubleshooting the fsck issue more rapidly, and, now, I'd like to fix it.
Do you guys know what could cause it? I spent the rest of my morning looking for the cause, but I'm getting nowhere, and I've had enough of looking at my computer re-booting for 90% of the time while troubleshooting on my phone, so I cowardly come to the forums for assistance...
EDIT: I'm not providing any more info because I have no clue what you'd need to help me troubleshooting, let me know if there's anything!
