Did it ever work? If so, what changes were made just prior to the failure?
Which version of windows?
Is it a UEFI or MBR install?

Just use the live CD to mount the / file system of debian, chroot to a shell there. Then run update-grub. It should find all the OSs on the drive and put them in the boot menu.

Did you re-install Grub while you were booted into Debian. If I understand your last post, you do see an entry for Manjaro when you run update-grub from Debian but do not see it in the boot menu when you re-boot. Is that correct? Are you seeing all the entries? When you boot, use the keyboard down arrow to make sure you see all the entries. If you re-installed grub from Debian, post the grub.cfg file from it, at least the menuentry portion.
