|# 1. First of all of course get Manjaro:|
|# I recommend using Etcher to copy the image to your USB:|
|# 2. Before installing make sure:|
|# - Secure boot is disabled in BIOS|
|# - Your SSD, HDD or NVME drive is set to AHCI instead of RAID|
|# - Fastboot should be on Auto or minimal, but this shouldn't matter to much|
|# 3. Once at the GRUB menu do the following (these steps are important, Manjaro won't even boot otherwise):|
|# - For drivers select the nonfree option instead of free, there is no support for Pascal GPUs yet (is planned for 4.12)|
|# - Hover over the option 'From stick/hdd' and press 'e' to edit the boot entry|
|# - Look for 'quiet' in the boot entry, after quiet you should type the following:|
|nouveau.modeset=0 nogpumanager pcie_aspm=off acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=!|
|# It should now look something like this:|
|quiet nouvea.modeset=0 nogpumanager pcie_aspm=off acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=!|
|# 4. Now just install Manjaro like you normally would.|
|# After install repeat step 3 as Manjaro will still not be bootable without|
|# 5. Once Manjaro is installed pretty much everything is set up already.|
|# Manjaro handles things like installing Bumblebee beautifully, but there is one more thing we should do.|
|# We need to add the boot arguments given in step 3.|
|# I recommend using something like grub-customizer (available from AUR or https://launchpad.net/grub-customizer)|
|# This is an UI for making Grub customizations|
|##### Using grub-customizer #####|
|# - Open up grub-customizer|
|# - Go to the 'General settings' tab|
|# - and add the following after quiet:|
|quiet pcie_port_pm=off acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=! acpi_osi='Windows 2009'|
|# Press 'ctrl + s' or click save and we are done. Your installation should be fully working now.|
|##### Using terminal #####|
|# sudo nano /etc/default/grub|
|# Find this line and make sure it looks like this:|
|GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nouvea.modeset=0 nogpumanager pcie_aspm=off acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=!"|
|sudo update-grub2 # (or update-grub if update-grub2 is not symlinked)|
|# to update your Grub config and we are done.|
|# Some last notes|
|# I get around 5 to 8 hours of battery life on a i7, 16GB, 512GB 4k model 9560.|
|# Stay on kernel 4.9 (standard on Manjaro right now).|
|# I have tried 4.11, but it was hard-locking/freezing my XPS 15 every few minutes or wouldn't even boot up.|
|# 4.11 only adds NVME power management so we aren't missing out on anything.|
|# Once 4.12 hits I will test and update this guide, hoping there is better support for Pascal as well.|
|# Update as of May 2018|
|# Latest install of Manjaro is possible using the exact same instructions.|
|# The current kernel version used by Manjaro is 4.14 and it seems to run fine.|
|# Update November 2018|
|# I've updated the boot parameters as I found the originals didn't work for me anymore|
|# Additional notes|
|# (Thanks @Cznielsen) For the XPS 9570 it seems this flag is necessary 'systemd.mask=mhwd-live.service'|
|# (Thanks @Jonathancollinet) Some people needed this flag to boot Manjaro: 'acpi_rev_override=1'|
|# (Thanks @stucash) For fixing power management of the intel graphics use these parameters: 'i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 i915.i915_enable_fbc=1 i915.lvds_downclock=1 i915.i915_psr=1 drm.vblankoffdelay=1'|
Hi. Thanks for the instructions, worked like a charm.
There is a slight error on line 16:
Also on line 42:
Had any luck with kernel 4.12 yet ?
As of kernel 4.13 and TLP v1.0, on a i7 16GB 512GB FHD model 9560 (not 4K / touch), most of those kernel parameters aren't needed,
The trackpad works way better without
You can squeeze out significant battery time thanks to the NVME power management and by enabling power saving feature for the i915 kernel module.
This used to be such a horrid issue. Hand Built from arch felt easier. Seriously thank you! I am switching back now. Does anyone use Cinnamon with manjaro? I want to keep resources lighter and cinnamon looks killer. (Used it previously until hdpi issues on xps 15 release). Gnome is amazing to. Thank you!!!!
@ASafdari, it's seems when you switch from RAID to AHCI, the windows boot is broken
I leave here some links and commands because I have not finished the grub configuration
I finally got a stable manjaro running on my xps 9560. Everything works well.
KDE, nonfree hybrid bumblebee graphic driver, Kernel 4.14
Only the grub parameter
If any trouble with X like:
PS: i also tried manjaro architect and it works well ! With it you can choose directly the good kernel version.
Thank you for the guide
For avoiding windows re-installation you only have to follow this 4 steps guide https://triplescomputers.com/blog/uncategorized/solution-switch-windows-10-from-raidide-to-ahci-operation/
Thanks @MeirBon, this worked beautifully for my new XPS. Some info for those reading: my machine is an XPS 15 9560 with the i7-7700HQ, nVidia GP107M and Intel video cards, the infamous Qualcomm Atheros QC6174, and a 512 SSD. Here's what worked for Manjaro 17.1.11 i3, with kernel 4.17.
Still fiddling with the wifi: it connects but it's super-slow: I have a 5520 with a realtek on it and it and on the same network it goes at double the speed
Hope this helps!
I have a Dell G3 with Intel i5-8300H, 12Gb ram, NVidia GTX 1050, intel ssd 256Gb. I have windows 10 installed. I would like to have dual boot manjaro xfce alongside windows 10.
I tried the method above with Manjaro XFCE 17.1.11 but the boot stopped at "Started TLP system startup/shutdown" it won't proceed.
For anyone who has problem with power management as well, you can also add these parameters to grub setting (after quiet):
Great summary. Could not get with my XPS15 9560 into GUI from USB-boot but once I figured out that I had to and how to change boot parameter and just replaced "quiet" with " 'acpi_rev_override=1" it worked great.
It's a little but annoying that although I selected a non-US keyboard layout the USB-based system still worked with US-keyboard layout (which makes entering and editing the boot parameters a little bit tricky).
I'm installing Manjaro KDE 18.0.4. From what I understand, the only change that has to be made is acpi_rev_override=1... correct?
Funny thing is the installation went thru properly, but when I try to boot into manjaro, laptop gets stuck at the dell logo. where am i going wrong?
Dual-boot Windows 10 & Manjaro (i3) (xps 9560)
EXTRA: you can easily chroot by running 'sudo manjaro-chroot -a' and then pressing '1' to select the first & only option.
Congrats... dualboot complete! You should now be able to choose OS on every boot
