Ive done some searching and am unable to figure out how to add my windows 10 drive (seperate HDD) /dev/sdd to the grub 2 menu.

I installed Manjaro linux on a seperate drive, windows is on the old one. Windows was installed first, I remember when I first dabbled in linux with ubuntu, it detected and listed windows by default in grub.

How do I add a windows entry to grub?

uname -r -> 4.4.17-1-MANJARO

grub-install --version -> grub-install (GRUB) 2.02~beta3

sudo update-grub ->

Attempting to follow this guide while inside mounted system /mnt/windows, called find . -name bootmgfr.efi with no luck. Inside /mnt/windows/Boot has no EFI folder or efi files of any kind

Mounted win10 iso, mounted EFI, entered EFI/Microsoft/Boot/ and the file bootmgfw.efi already existed, added bootmgr.efi from win10 iso, ran sudo grub-mkconfig, grub still had no Windows option

    Use os-prober, grub-mkconfig will call it if it finds it.

Please install os-prober: pacman -S os-prober

Also, it's bootmgfw.efi, not bootmgfr.efi.

The file bootmgfw.efi is not on the Windows partition, it's on the EFI System Partition. Use fdisk -l on every disk to find the EFI partition. Then extract the file bootmgfw.efi from the Windows 10 ISO to $esp/EFI/Microsoft/boot, where $esp is where the EFI partition is mounted. Then run grub-mkconfig and you are done.
