I wrote this in the thread several times, but you didn't read to the end, no wonder the thread is long.
The Arch Wiki would have been a more reliable source of information.

You can try again with the mount commands and it should probably work.

Thank you for your help. I appreciated it. I went back and did all this, including updating linux kernel. Like I said...

Code: [Select]
su
lsblk -f
cryptsetup open --type luks /dev/sda2 root
lsblk -f
mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/ManjaroVG-ManjaroRoot /mnt
chroot /mnt /bin/bash
exit
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
pacman -Syy
pacman -S cryptsetup
pacman -S linux45

This does not fix the issue. I feel I'm left with no option but to dump Manjaro and stop recommending it; that makes it a sad day.  :(

You need to issue the mount commands before the chroot command!
Yeah it can be tricky sometimes with Manjaro, but not exclusively.

Yeah, could be a troll, especially considering the last words. ;) :P
