I know that’s my fault for not having a back-up PC, but that still doesn’t eliminate the sour taste in my mouth
What? No. Of course it is not your fault. You can’t be blamed for not having another system. Despite some evidence in contrary, Linux is still not just for the rich. And what kind of operating system would this be if you needed two machines to install one? I hope you haven’t learned that from anybody. If you did, strike out that person immediately from your list of people to look for advice.
It was instead the Manjaro installer fault. Plain and simple. Especially because the same hardware was detectable from other distributions, like it was the case with Antergos. However, saying that it was Manjaro fault does not mean that one can’t understand and appreciate all the complexity that goes into hardware detection and automated installers. You can bet there will be also opposite cases of people who had trouble installing Antergos – and whose Manjaro experience went much smoother. What it all means is that hardware detection is a complex business as are automated installers like Manjaro and Antergos’, that facilitate the installation of a highly developed and complex operating system such as Linux. For which reason one can expect the boat will sometimes sail through rough oceans. It’s just the way it is.
