So I'm new to Garuda linux. So I got very excited about installing Garuda. I tried installing it on my nuc8i5 machine, but updating the system destroyed the GRUB menu, leaving only the option 'garuda snapshots'. I ended up reinstalling Manjaro again. Also, it was laggy somehow. Fixing grub and chrooting didn't help me out. But I think perhaps I don't know enough about chrooting and fixing Grub.
Today, I tried installing it on my main production machine. Garuda kinda works, but it wouldn't install nvidia-dkms through the 'Hardware Configuration' module. The script would just fail, it said. I ended up installing it by using the terminal for the nvidia-dkms package. After that I was able to complete the setup through 'Hardware Configuration' again. However, browsing and watching YouTube video's is still very laggy. Also the desktop experience seems laggy at times. I did not experience this on both Arch and Manjaro and Garuda is marketed as 'snappy' and 'speedy'.
What can I do to fix this? I don't want to switch back to Manjaro, but I might have to. Even Arch worked out of the box, what's the difference in this case?

I edit your post, read wiki "reporting bugs". Seems there are missing parts. greetings SGS
