In response to what I wanted earlier
Even a fresh windows install can’t do that.
How do I “force grub to the removable media path” when installing manjaro, as I would with debian? I’ve decided to go the route of manjaro, but in doing so, I no longer have Grub showing up at boot, instead falling back onto Manjaro bootloader, meaning I can’t use the windows partition.
I’m having this issue again, and sid is missing a few pkgs so I’ve bumped down to testing. I had been playing around with Manjaro, and it seemed to be offloading out of the box, albeit not perfectly. The main screen would work fine, but the secondary screen would show a mirror image for a few seconds, then it would stop updating altogether aside from cursor position. Also, I’m not able to force grub to the efi removable media path when installing manjaro and windows only and if I want to use grub and not have it fallback on the manjaro bootloader (preventing me from accessing my windows partition and making the boot process take precious seconds more), I have to tri boot Manjaro, Debian and Bimbos. I’ve used Arch, and after having attempted LFS numerous times I can say that Arch provides it’s user the AUR and bleeding edge software, but also a false sense of superiority due to the install process. Manjaro will do me fine, but I still prefer the familiarity of debian. I can get used to Manjaro in place of Debian, that’s fine.
My question today is this: how should this be updated such that I may continue to use Debian, or how do I “force grub to the removable media path” when installing manjaro, as I would with debian?
