Hi, I installed the tkg pds kernel because I wasn't satisfied with the performance of the stock kernel (I ran some unigine benckmarks and I was getting 15-20 fps less than on Windows 10), after I installed the tkg pds kernel the results were the same. I'm not sure what I did but I think I accidentally uninstalled the stock kernel because when I boot in advanced options I only see the tkg pds kernel. If I try to install linux-zen kernel or any other kernel i get this error:

Help!

Boot from a live USB, chroot and try installing from there.

Ok, I will try this in a few hours, when I will be able to get the live USB. Oh, and about the performance shouldn't it be at least the same as Windows? I mean from what I've seen the performance is better on Garuda than on windows.

You probably don't even need a live USB actually.
I didn't read correctly the error messages from the mobile, sorry.
If you have internet connectivity (I guess so, since you posted the errors), then you could try to refresh your mirrorlists. If you still have errors, this could be a DNS problem, so you could change your DNS server with the Garuda Assistant.
About the performance, I don't know, this is a completely different and much more complex topic, depending from many aspects.

Ok, thank you, I will try this.

This might be the problem.
You should update first of all (this will also refresh your mirrors)!
The current kernel to be installed should have been: 5.16.5.zen1-1

I ve done that but now when I boot I am stuck on a screen where it says
Loading linux-zen...
Loading initial ramdisk...
Edit:Forgot to install linux-zen-headers.... Now it works
