• Booting into grub console after install


    Hello there,

    read below horizontal line for my guess of the source of the problem

    Before installing antergos my system had dual boot of win10 + ubuntu. I wanted to switch away from ubuntu and therefore partitioned accordingly (keeping windows recovery, efi system, microsoft reserved and microsoft basic data untouched) as you can see here:

    Device Start End Sectors Size Type
    /dev/sda1 2048 923647 921600 450M Windows recovery environment
    /dev/sda2 923648 1128447 204800 100M EFI System
    /dev/sda3 1128448 1161215 32768 16M Microsoft reserved
    /dev/sda4 1161216 307202047 306040832 146G Microsoft basic data
    /dev/sda5 307202048 424389547 117187500 55.9G Linux filesystem
    /dev/sda6 424389548 440014547 15625000 7.5G Linux filesystem
    /dev/sda7 440014548 976773134 536758587 256G Linux filesystem

    I followed the antergos wiki for partitioning

    The 55.9G partition is root, the 7.5G is swap and the 256G is home. Furthermore I edited the fat32 partition (100MB) to include the mounting point /boot/efi and the label ESP.

    After installing and rebooting I ended up in the grub console.


    Now that I am writing it down I see some crucial mistake. Before installing antergos I booted into the usb in uefi mode (from boot order menu) and tried to start antergos (entry point was “antergos_x86_64” i believe) which resulted in a black screen and forcing me to reboot manually. After that I booted into the usb stick without uefi, which worked fine.

    So should I change the mounting point to exclude efi or reinstall with uefi boot (after I figured out why I cannot start antergos from there)

    Thanks so much for any help

  • hm… usually you will need to have both OS on same way booted either legacy-BIOS or UEFI/EFI …

    And as you Windows installation seems to boot in EFI Mode Antergos should do so also… Will be problematic to change this on every boot to change the booting OS…

  • I tried to install again and this time set the mounting point to /boot only. This did not work either.

    I assume that nowadays all installs are uefi by default. So my problem mostly resolves around the bootable usb not starting antergos in uefi mode. I flashed the usb via linux aka via dd command. So I do not see what is causing the issue.

    If all fails I might just skip the manual partitioning step and go for a complete wipe/automatic partitioning. I need to have a functioning pc some time soon. without it I cant even create more bootable mediums.

  • @wandang
    Uefi install is the way to go.
    I guess the boot issue was about graphics drivers.
    Please show the output of

    lspci -vnn

  • @wandang possible to disable integrated graphics inside firmware (BIOS) ? as you have intel integrated graphics (onboard) + AMD Graphics pci-e card?

  • @joekamprad Just tried. It is not possible :/

    Cant I give antergos boot parameter to start with my amd graphic card?

  • @wandang if you see this on live iso boot menu press “e” and go to the end of the line at the buttom (right arrow key) there you can add kernel boot parameter for live iso…

    0_1534925642812_Bildschirmfoto vom 2018-08-22 10-10-33.png

    for grub on installed system it will look like this after pressing “e” :
    0_1534925681698_Bildschirmfoto vom 2018-08-22 10-13-51.png
    go to the line where it says rw quiet and add the boot parameter you want to add ( adding the number “1” will also force system to boot without graphical login)

  • press Ctrl+X to boot then …

  • must be similar grub related issues that i have experienced after successful install, but for some reasons either you will have grub rescue, or have a menu but end up with unable to find kernel and such.

    i would just try and manually fix grub after install if this is the case.

  • @Wandang
    If nothing else works, you could disable/blacklist AMD GPU and use only the integrated Intel graphics. I just don’t remember how AMDGPU can be blacklisted, so someone should help out here.

    See also: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMDGPU

    But could you show what you have in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and also show some logs:

    ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
    grep '(EE)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    

    on your installed system. If you cannot boot to it directly, then you can boot with the USB installer stick and arch-chroot to the installed system:
    su

    lsblk -fm  # find correct X and Y of the root partition for the next command!
    mount /dev/sdXY /mnt   # set correct X and Y here!
    arch-chroot /mnt
    
  • @joekamprad said in Booting into grub console after install:

    ne at the buttom (right arrow key) there you can add kernel boot parameter for live iso…

    Sorry for the late reply. I got some health issues that I took care of today.
    I wouldn’t know what to add on that line. Maybe you can give me a hint? something like -usecard x I presume. I will try to google card usage parameters.

  • Hey manuel,

    that’s a neat feature to get into the os from the live distri!

    [[email protected] /]# ls -la /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
    total 20
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Aug 21 21:06 .
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Aug 21 21:05 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  311 Aug 21 21:06 00-keyboard.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1691 Aug 21 21:06 50-synaptics.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  216 Aug 21 21:06 99-killX.conf
    
    [[email protected] /]# grep '(EE)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    grep: /var/log/Xorg.0.log: No such file or directory
    

    hope this helps!

    PS: I never used grep this way. normally I would just pipe to grep like less conf.cfg | grep “searchterm”.
    hopefully I did use it right in your way.

  • @wandang
    Strange that file /var/log/Xorg.0.log didn’t exist. It should have.

    The grep usage is OK. Bash shell just supports many ways of using it, and many other commands.

  • @manuel said in Booting into grub console after install:

    Strange that file /var/log/Xorg.0.log didn’t exist. It should have.

    maybe ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log

  • @fernandomaroto
    I don’t have ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log …

  • modprobe.blacklist=amdgpu
    
  • @fernandomaroto said in Booting into grub console after install:

    maybe ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log

    share has no xorg folder :/

  • @joekamprad ok I will try adding this to the antergos uefi boot menu (pressing e and adding it to the line at the end)

  • @joekamprad This did not work. Resulted in the same “black screen” (black overall screen with blue line at the bottom.

    I could remove the graphics card temporarly instead. this should force the integrated card to be used. Cant I boot without graphical user interface first though? And after that try to install the necessary drivers?
