I have a pc with two SSD's and a HDD. The first SSD has windows 10 for gaming. I had ubuntu on the 2nd SSD. I could boot into ubuntu by holding down F12 for boot options and selecting to boot off this 2nd drive.

I have decided to try out arch with rEFInd on the 2nd SSD. I've installed arch ok from a USB drive but I cant boot into arch off the SSD.

When I boot off the SSD with arch, I get a white screen that says 'rEFInd boot management" for like one second then the system restarts.

How can I get rEFInd to find my arch install? Is there a way of troubleshooting why I am seeing a blank rEFInd screen? I feel like I am close but am stumbling in the dark now. I have included some system info below. Ive got a brief video of what happens on startup.

Ive been following guides at http://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/installation.html https://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/installing.html#linux https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/REFInd
