Here is what happened.
I managed to successfully dual boot manjaro and windows 10, from windows, using a program called easyBCD. It was all working normally, but there was 1 little issue I found, which was that you had to go through the windows metro boot to select manjaro. and then go through manjaro’s dual boot process, which i found a bit tedious.
I made the completely destructive choice of changing easybcd’s options so that it would skip the boot process and automatically boot linux*. Therefore, every time i choose to boot windows 10 from manjaro’s grub system, it just automatically takes me back to the grub bootloader. (atleast i think thats the case, windows doesnt load past the message “processing the preset menu…”)
Is there any way I could perhaps edit the windows 10 boot settings from linux to fix this?
*I ended up starting the issue by changing these freebcd settings:
- skip the boot menu on.
- set default to manjaro.
