EFI dual boot Windows 8.1 grub doesn't work

@masozow said in EFI dual boot Windows 8.1 grub doesn't work:

cnchi goes nuts when there’s more than one OS installed

Only if you have EFI-Bios or more then one OS installed before…
On Bios System i never have a problem with second OS …
But this does not count for the fututure as we will go to mostly EFI Boot systems…

Trying to update

This type of issue is rare so you were unlucky to see it so early in your introduction to Linux. All Linux distros with regular updates have the possibility of something that users raise and fix before the devs see it. This is part and parcel of Linux and it’s ever-changing nature so moving to Ubuntu for example will not avoid this but might lower the chance.

The more bleeding edge the distro (such as Arch/Antergos), the earlier in the chain you are for receiving software updates so update errors are more frequent but these in turn create an ability in the user to quickly fix almost anything and continue with little pause.

No distro will need fixing every time - no matter how complex or low-level it is, so why not try Antergos for a few weeks and see how you get on, and if it somehow matches your worst fears, move to a distro with a much slower release cycle - at least this way you will know what you will miss if you move away to another distro.

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Wi-Fi going slow

@juantello said in Wi-Fi going slow:


The rtl8723ae and rtl8723be modules are included in the mainline Linux kernel.

Some users may encounter errors with powersave on this card.
This is shown with occasional disconnects that are not recognized by high level network managers (netctl, NetworkManager).
