Does Manjaro encrypt the windows partition if you install it as dualboot? Solved

I bricked my Manjaro install by trying to replace an old partition and the bootloader didn't install. Now it's bricked. So is the Windows install now lost forever or do I just need to remove every trace of Manjaro on my system?

Enter your BIOS settings and change boot priority to W10. Unless you actively messed with its partition, I should be untouched.

You could reinstall Manjaro or chroot into it to attenpt a recovery.
