Dual boot with two Endeavours

I can dual or triple boot Endeavour fine with any other distros but when I install two Endeavours, I always have to boot one of them into the fallback initramfs option

I keep KDE as my main distro but I have a second XFCE partition and I want to be able to boot it normally

The only option that works is to install something like Manajaro on a tiny partition to use as a bootloader and it boots all 3 perfectly

Is there an easy solution for this? I’m using a tiny 128gb SSD so I don’t feel like making a 3rd partition for another distro because I’m done hopping/testing for a while

Probably the problem is with the generated /boot/grub/grub.cfg. If that’s the case, then you could install package grub-tools and fix the generator with program grub-fix-initrd-generation.

For more details, see https://github.com/endeavouros-team/PKGBUILDS/tree/master/grub-tools

After running the fixer you need to re-create grub.cfg and reboot.

Thanks, I’ll try that next time I have just the two

I already put Manjaro back for now

The commands to fix it are:

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S grub-tools
sudo pacman -S grub os-prober
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Thanks, I just tried that and it solved the problem
