You could possibly boot into the installed system by selecting fallback from the grub screen, this should put you into a tty (command line terminal) here you can log in and run those commands, provided you are connected to the internet via a ethernet cable to your router.
I do not know the name, I just grabbed that from the wiki page.
So it must be cd/mnt/NetrunnerRoot
That is the default name I think.
I will go try that.
that doesnt work. I get…
bash: ch /mnt/NetrunnerRoot: No such file or directory
Do you know the right command?
It would be the default from a fresh install.
I did not change the names of anything.
i just dont understand why this is so difficult.
Have you looked for a bios update for that laptop?
Does this laptop use UEFI?
did you download the 32bit or 64bit ISO?
Did you verify the ISO with the Md5sum?
Did you burn the ISO to a DVD using the slowest burn spped or did you use a USB Stick?
Been a long day but I am making progress.
I found the fallback grub. I realized it was netrunner with advanced options.
So anyway, I am plugged into my ethernet and everything seems to be updating.
Is there any other steps I should look at taking before I restart.
Oh and the iso was the 64bit that worked perfect on the other laptops.
The nvidia nouveau gpu lockup is a kernel issue introduced with kernel 3.16. Some distributions patched that kernel to fix the issue. Sadly this fix was not accepted upstream yet and manjaros kernel did not include that fix.
So either you use an older kernel or build your own kernel with this fix.
The easiest way would be booting with the nomodeset bootoption and installing the proprietary nvidia driver via the driver manager.
On the grub screen hit e to edit and add it to the end of the “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=” line. then continue booting using that. This is temporary and will only work for that boot, but it will allow you to get in and install the non-free driver like leszek said.
