I have read through the Manjaro and EndeavourOS forums and they seem like friendly communities as well. I forgot to welcome you to the community here, if you like and are planning on sticking around feel free to create an introduction topic in the introduction section.Althought I love pop os, I haven't been impressed by their community.. they have a chat at for community support. But, my requests was mostly being ignored.

I didn't do a dual-boot setup just a PopOS install with systemd-boot but I figured out how to install grub and to get it working. This is what I did.
1. Install Grub packages: sudo apt install grub-efi
2. Run grub-install: sudo grub-install
3. Copy grub efi file to pop efi location: sudo cp /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/grub.efi /boot/efi/EFI/pop/grubx64.efi
4. Remove systemd-boot: sudo bootctl remove
5. Set time-out in /etc/default/grub to 10 seconds, so this line
6. Update grub: sudo update-grubCode:
7. Reboot and you should now get a grub menu.
