• Install antergos to an usb stick


    I tried to install base antergos without grub to my usb stick (live running from another usb stick, installing it onto a second usb stick), to be able to chroot into it from my antergos host, but it never goes beyond “preparing disk 100%”, googling the issue seems to yield no results besides “should be fixed now”, is there a way to maybe install antergos to the stick via cli to see some sort of output or to maybe even solve it that way? or is this a known issue and there’s actually a known solution to it?

    Edit: just ran cnchi inside the terminal and got that:

  • https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installing_Arch_Linux_on_a_USB_key can give some info abot install onto a stick…

    I do not think that Antergos installer is providing installation on a usb stick, without some hacking…

  • It might (and should) work, but the real issue will be the booting setup.

    Should the stick be able to boot independently?

    Also, you may have a UEFI machine with gpt disk partitioning, but the stick may have msdos partitioning that suits for BIOS/Legacy booting. So the stick should have the same partitioning system as the system drive.

  • I just install to a stick, it do not hang but it takes very long to install, blnext will be to try booting it…

    Already did that, since I couldn’t get antergos to install on it

    I’ve tried multiple usb drives and formatted them differently too, it always would get stuck for me on the getting ready part - did it just take very long at that part or later?

    Yeah that is what I am trying to properly setup on my usb drive now.

  • @ClownTie it needs around 1 1/2 hour to install here, but i can boot into installed system.
