Manjaro Tutorial: BIOS, UEFI, MBR, GPT, GRUB, SED, LUKS

tl;dr:
  • All modern motherboards and operating systems support UEFI. Therefore, there is absolutely no reason to install the operating system in BIOS mode (which is emulated by the Compatibility Support Module of the UEFI).
  • Like UEFI, GPT is supported by all modern motherboards and operating systems. So the choice should be GPT without a doubt.
  • A separate boot partition is not required on modern systems.


Attach stick on target system, reboot and select it on UEFI boot menu.
