• Antergos not booting

    i can only see /dev/sda …

    do you try mount /dev/sdb2 as i advice you?

    there is no possible other place where Antergos could be installed:

    Disk /dev/sdb: 232.9 GiB, 250059350016 bytes, 488397168 sectors
    Device         Start       End   Sectors   Size Type
    /dev/sdb1       2048      5953      3906   1.9M BIOS boot
    /dev/sdb2       5954 480410249 480404296 229.1G EFI System
    /dev/sdb3  480410250 488397134   7986885   3.8G Linux filesystem

    can you make a shot of what filebrowser show from /mnt/custom ?

  • I did mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt and the output is
    mount: /mnt: /dev/sdb2 already mounted on /mnt

    and this is /mnt/custom

  • Guys, maybe I should open a new thread?
    I reinstalled Antergos on the Windows partition where there were no files I needed to save. When I log in with the pw I set during the installation the session opens normally. When I want to install gparted, or mount a partition, or change my pw the permission is denied - with the exact same pw which of course I wrote out in Office Writer to make sure I have the correct keyboard. Which is the case. I don’t know how to continue… Can someone help, maybe?

  • what should we do ? you can change your password from LiveISO after arch-chroot into new installed system.

    with passwd username or passwd for root

  • @joekamprad - Well, why would the pw be accepted to open a session but not to add a package/program, that is what I don’t understand.

  • may different keyboardlayout on login and inside session? is it GNOME you have installed? if yes take a look inside region and language settings

  • Thx, yes it is Gnome. Coming back to my f…d up Antergos install for which Manuel gave me precise instructions on how to reinstall properly: I reinstalled Antergos on the 1T HDD and should now be able to access the 250GB HDD where we could not access my files. Thx to joekamprad we created a directory mnt/custom where my files should be visible but they are not. Below is the present set up with the 250GB
    HDD listed but I still have not found the data that were there, and there is no reason they shoud have disappeared… And, remember, this all happened after a simple update.

  • gparted shows it now as ext4, and you should see files on it (250 GO) inside filebrowser…
    first the root filesystem of your messed up Antergos install and a folder called home with a folder named as your username…

  • Thank you, there is no home directory on this HDD:

    this is how root filesystem should look like…

  • It is the case on all other HDD except this one… I don’t know what to do, and I cannot believe these files were erased during an update, that seems impossible.

  • you must have done something, as far as i know it is not possible to erase all the system related data with an update…

    you do not have /bin /etc and /home …

    Do you may try to save data from the device to another one?

    I am not sure if it is may possible to recover filesystem with tools like testdisk or ddrescue, and this is also a long annoying procedure with the need to get knowledged abou howto do it…

  • I agree, updating has never affected my personal files and there is no reason it should erase them. I am trying Testdisk …(https://www.tecmint.com/photorec-recover-deleted-lost-files-in-linux/)

  • I wish you luck! ↩ HAPPY RECOVERY ;)

  • Thx, I recovered absolutely NOTHING. I think I give up.

  • to me it looks like partly removed files from the partition…
