mhbell Posted November 14, 2020 Share Posted November 14, 2020 As most of you probably know. Arch and most arch derivative distros Use a different grub2 which has the Intel Micro code in it and not in the OS. Because of this In my case Manjaros Grub boot loader has to be first in line. When updating on a multi boot system if Manjaro's Grub is replaced by another grub2 then manjaro won't boot unless you use Fallback mode. The arch manjaro Wiki has a long drawn out process to restore the grub boot loader. I found a faster easier way. I boot to fall back mode with manjaro and then use the cli in the terminal and use sudo grub-install /dev/sda# whatever partion the EFI /ESP partition is on. In my case, /dev/sda2. This restores Manjaro / Arch Grub to the EFI and makes it #1 inline again. another way would be to use a 3rd party boot manager such as ReFind. There is another way booting up and using the GUI on another distro, but thats for another post. Hope this helps someone multi booting arch or a arch derivative.
