PBP disappointment

Err, this is an image for x86, intel and AMD,, NOT arm
Such a thing would never boot, never
You are looking for aarch64 OR arm64 OR armhf (arm hard float, 32bit)
Do try to boot emmc again, when you come to login screen (where you can't login because messed up)
Then press and hold control-alt,,tap F3.. login there,, then startplasma-x11
Then change display manager, remove sddm, install lightdm
The reason that it always goes to emmc, the SD card is NOT bootable, not in a million years
(well, it would boot on a x86 laptop, the pbp is not one of those, it is an arm laptop, you knew that, right?)
So, the ONLY bootable media is on the emmc, so it's doing EXACTLY what it should

Notice "arm" in the name,, OR

Good job spotting that and pointing it out. See, fenyo - I'm not telling you what to do but unless it was damaged when you opened the laptop I wouldn't give up on the eMMC just yet. It does run faster than SDcard; I highly suggest just getting the proper ARM Manjaro back on eMMC... even if you never use it; just have a good copy of a linux build so that its THERE - and use the SDcard for whatever OS you want to run...

If it were ME, I'd get the OS I want to RUN on the eMMC card - but at the very least I'm glad the x86 error was spotted. At the minimum, that part wasn't the fault of PBP - we have to feed it the correct food and instructions not to get sick. Tongue

This thing WILL function properly; we just gotta get you in line. Tongue (I'm saying that in the nicest way... no disrespect.)

Err @Paulie420 , did you read the thread?
The problem is at login screen, IIUR, the entry boxes deformed or something
And not clear if he knows user:password
And, and, at end of post appropriate links, of course there are more

So you, too, do not know the value of vt's (virtual terminal)
Perhaps you should read upthread and increase your knowledge.
And, BTW, I don't mind reading a "wall of text" if there are lots of points in it,
maybe you could exercise a little restraint?
