(Im sorry, I have just recently switched to linux)
I have tried to install Arch Linus on my laptop and followed a tutorial by DistroTube but it was saying no bootable device so I did it like the installation guide said.
But there is still the same issue, I am using Grub and I have disabled Secure boot for UEFI.
Also my partition table is GPT like the tutorial said.
Also I have no Idea how I get back to the installation I just tried to configure.
Thanks in advance.

There is a timing element here.

Was UEFI mode enabled or disabled when you did the install?
Did you change it after the install?

You likely don't have a way to view your file systems,
but it would be interesting to know if you have a...
/efi/boot
or a
/biosboot

There is a way to list whats on your drives from grub
however finding the device path is sometimes a little tricky.

UEFI was enabled and secure boot disabled but later switched to lagecy because wanted to test if it maybe works (it didn't)
Im sure I didn't used /biosboot and I'm pretty sure it was /efi/boot
Thanks for the reply btw

/efi/boot is where things initially get loaded in UEFI mode.

/biosboot is where they get loaded in legacy BIOS.

If you switch the UEFI/BIOS mode, it won't know where to look for the bootloader files.

Reinstalled for the fifth time now EXACTLY like the installation guide was saying (even installed the intel ucore) still saying No Bootable Device

Arch is not known to be for those new to Linux.
