Good morning, i’ll try to be quick and concise:
Having problems getting Antergos to boot post install, while using EasyBCD to set-up boot menu options within Win 10 boot manager.
The reason I DO NOT want to let Antergos Live USB edit the win10 MBR is because I’ve had headaches with it before, to the point where I had to fix MBR’s and sometimes lost WIN installs. I’d like to avoid those situations by having control of the environment in a fashion which I’m a lil bit more familiar with (EasyBCD).
Coming from Elementary OS install, this one is proving a bit tougher to get up and running out of the box. On Elementary OS, I’ve been able to just set up /root /home /swap, finish the install, boot into WIN10, use EasyBCD to manually point it to root partition, and boot Elementary.
This method does not seem to work with Antergos, and I’m wondering if there’s a way to get it to work this way. (I really want to avoid letting Linux modify the WIN MBR on install).
The bootmenu ends up looking something like this (http://prog-city.ru/uploads/posts/2012-09/1348685167_easybcd.png) which does not seem to work.
While looking for a solution on forums here, I found this article, which I have not tried yet. - https://forum.antergos.com/topic/9275/stop-using-boot-partition-and-use-root-partition-instead so I can’t comment on weather this will work or not yet.
If anyone knows a solution to this, please help. Thank you in advance!
Some things I noticed might be of importance:
Live USB for Antergos does trigger some sort of “modified/can’t boot” error/warning, have to switch to non Windows/EFI security to get it to boot.
Wondering if i’m running into these issues because this Distro is running release and not LTS?
Again, thank you for your time/help! - Can’t wait to see if I can get this distro up and running.
