How to boot Manjaro from NVME with uboot on eMMC
#41
I installed Manjaro to my eMMC. I followed the tutorial until it said to edit the file boot.txt in /boot. There is no boot.txt. I looked in the chroot /boot as well as the eMMC /boot. Both have the following files/dirs:

ls -a
. .. dtbs extlinux idbloader.img Image Image.gz initramfs-linux.img u-boot.itb

Am I doing something wrong?

p.s. - I love the look of Manjaro - sweet looking with KDE Plasma.

Never mind. I install the spi-flash image, used the Micro_SD to install directly to the NVME, and then disabled the eMMC with the switch. It works like a charm. Woo hoo!

Great to hear. You were doing everything right but Manjaro is not using boot.scr anymore. They are using extlinux.conf now.

I think I will have to update my howto - thanks Smile

As Manjaro now uses extlinux.conf it is also possible to keep the config file unchanged and just name the system partition on NVME as “ROOT” and the others something different. Works well on my pbp

Hi,

got my new PBP yesterday. Ordered it with the NVMe adapter and an 512GB Intel NVMe. All good so far. Manjaro off the emmc card is running fine.

Now I wanted trasnfer my Manjaro installation from emmc to NVMe. But the newest release of Manjaro now uses a /boot formatted with FAT16 and a / as root partition.

How about to handle this? I think the explanation/guide from first post has to be modified?

TIA

Uwe

@firefox-58 create two partitions. One for /boot (it has to be first on the disk) and the other for rootfs. Copy everything from /boot on eMMC to boot partition on nvme drive and rsync the rootfs.
I'm not sure how /etc/fstab looks on new Manjaro. Paste it here so I can take a look.

Here it is:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
# Static information about the filesystems.
# See fstab(5) for details.

# <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
LABEL=BOOT_MNJRO /boot vfat defaults 0 0
#48
If you label your partitions the same names as Manjaro guys do then you don't have o change fstab.
