    Hey guys, so I was feeling bold today and formatted my windows to Manjaro, I made a bootable usb. Then I went into the bootable devices hit Manjaro and went into the installer.
    Next I formated my ssd with the correct 4 paritions (which are /, /home, linuxswap, and grub). Then I rebooted to find no matter what drive a boot to It gives me the screen shown in the video. Also when I go into the bios I get the same screen. Help would be appreciated!

    Sorry for dirty laptop!

    I looked through all the pages, hit all the key combos, the only solution I have not tried is re flashing the bios because all their tools are not windows compatible.
    I do not have any product keys with me and I don't think it will even install.

    Okay, I may have a "solution". It involved reinstalling windows, and no, you do not need a license key. I can help you activate it for free via PMs later if needed.

    Anyways, I saw that you were able to access the boot menu and we are going to use that to install Windows. We can then update the BIOS from there. Do you have any other computers/laptops laying around?

    Okay. I assume you know how to install a bootable setup onto a USB? If so, use Rufus
