    Error: Unknown Filesystem, Entering rescue mode, grub rescue


    Hey guys, I downloaded Manjaro KDE and I just made a bootable USB Memory Stick, but I can't boot up the installer. On the boot process, I am faced with a screen that says:

    error: unknown filesystem
    Entering rescue mode...
    grub rescue>

    From there I did 'ls' and got this

    grub rescue> ls
    (hd0) (hd1) (cd0)

    What set boot command can I write? I appreciate in advance for all the help I get. So Thanks!

    how did you create the bootable usb medium?
    were you following instructions from manjaro's website (as you should)?

    I forgot where I followed the guide from. I made 224Gb of Unallocated space on my internal C:/ drive before I booted it up. I downloaded the USB bootable from UNetbootin (UNetbootin: create bootable Live USB
    unetbootin.org)
    and made the USB bootable from there.

    I used this guide to install Manjaro Linux:

    well, you should be following manjaro's own instructions, not some random outdated blog post.

    unetbootin is broken. has been for years.

    If you are using Windows, you should be using Rufus. Also, do you know if Windows is installed on a GPT disk? Maybe you are just using BIOS.
