New issue this morning after a windows update.
Restarted and got the message
Failed to Mount/boot

Edit:
I discovered fast startup was enabled. Disabled it
I discovered hibernation file was active. removed it.
Still have the /boot error

Looking for steps to fix this. Arcolinux won't boot. I can get to tty but without internet

OK got the arcolinux to boot.
I removed the fstab entry for the /boot which was tied to the windows partition.

I have discovered that there is a /boot on the arcolinux partition that the system is using.
grub.cfg is also there.
etc/default/grub also exists.

I now can boot but I have no network.
It appears the network drivers are not loading.

Ok I am fixed.
What I did was boot to usb live
arch-chroot to system.
updated the system
re installed the linux package
rebooted and all is working fine now.

I don't know what started all of these problems but I have a feeling Windows had something to do with it.

I don't have UEFI on this system.
It appears GRUB is configured on the arcolinux system in /boot
lsblk shows no boot partition only / partition on /dev/sda3

Windows also allows me to boot to arcolinux through a windows menu.

I will mark this solved. However there are still some unanswered questions about this system.
