• USB Ports not being accepted during live CD installation.


    Hello antergos community,
    I’ve downloaded the most recent 64-bit .ISO file, and burned it to a USB stick using this program via windows. Upon booting, I get this screen:

    ![0_1528166292880_20180604_191916.jpg](Uploading 100%)

    OFT:Unfortunately, i’m too lazy to type that one out so hopefully you’re able to read that, if not, i’ll type it out.

    I’ve searched this error on google, and apparently it’s something to do with a power surge or limiter, and the solution was to unplug all USB systems connected to your PC, then the power cord, wait a few minutes, and retry. I attempted this, but to no avail. I’ve never had any similar error on any other operating system that i’ve installed on my machine, including raw arch. Help would be greatly appreciated, as there aren’t any solutions on google.

  • There may be something wrong with the USB.
    But did you use the DD mode in Rufus?
    A good program for writing the USB stick is Etcher (https://etcher.io/).
    And the best burning program is plain old dd.

  • I did use the “dd” mode via rufus. Is it possible that my thumbsrive is damaged, and if so, able to be fixed?

    Also, may I ask, how does using “dd” or defaulted iso burning images, as they both essentially do the same thing, but dd is more optomozed for limuz distor utibs

  • @zenreon
    USB sticks do break sometimes, so it is possible. But if you can use it otherwise, then it probably is not broken.

    Didn’t quite catch your dd question, sorry about that.

    But if you have the opportunity to use linux and dd, then I’d suggest you burn the stick with command

    sudo dd bs=4M if=/path-to/antergos-18.6-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdX && sync
    

    where letter X refers to the stick and can be found using command

    lsblk -fm
    

    The dd command has never failed me. 🙂

    And if you don’t have dd available, then Etcher is the preferred burning program.

  • dd is not changing anything to the image itself and do not install any bootloader options e.t.c. so it will be the image as it is ready to use.

    But the errors in the image looks like a bad usb stick or a bad port, may try another port first, and if this resulting the same, clean the stick you can do that witrh winmdows as discribed here:

    Insert a USB flash drive into a running computer.

    Open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.

    Type diskpart

    In the new command line window that opens, to determine the USB flash drive number or drive letter, at the command prompt, type list disk and then click ENTER. The list disk command displays all the disks on the computer. Note the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive.

    At the command prompt, type select disk X , where X is the drive number or drive letter of the USB flash drive, and then click ENTER.

    Type clean, and the click ENTER. This command deletes all data from the USB flash drive.

    exit to close the programm

    Didn’t seem to fix the problem, unfortunately.
