new here :-)
I’m trying to install Antergos on a Lenovo Ideapad 320 (AMD A9-9420, Radeon R5 & 8 GB Ram, 1 T HD).
So far I’ve always installed only Linux on my laptops, but as this one has a quite big hd I’d like to have a dual boot Windows/Linux machine.
Antergos live seems to be working fine (and this is actually the reason I’m trying it, instead of Manjaro as in my previous laptop), however as I wrote I can’t go beyond the partitioning stage.
I do (try to) follow the instructions found on the antergos wiki for dual booth with Windows.
I do select the free space and click on + new, write as from the instructions and this is the result:
Now, first there’s this thing that the Mount Checklist doesn’t change and there’s that red “no go” sign, then there’s one fat 32 partition, but the label isn’t ESP but there’s this SYSTEM_DRV. I’ve tried to edit this partition, ad here’s the result:
And then I can’t go any further, as “+ New” stays gray whatever I try, and I don’t know what to do next.
What if I use gparted on the live to create a big free space and then modify/create the root, swap and home partition with Cnchi?
Or there somewhere a more detailed tutorial for the not so bright linux users?
P.S. please note I’ve had many issues logging in here (mentioned in another section of the forum), if you reply and don’t see me answer, it’s just because I’m outside struggling to get in…
