I am trying to install Antergos next to Windows 7 Professional.
Something went wrong during the installation and whenever I start my computer it boots into Windows 7 and I can’t boot into Antergos even if antergos_grub has the highest boot priority. In the following I will explain exactly what I did:
I followed the tutorial that was recommended during the installtion but I had to vary from the instructions at one point: The tutorial recommends to set the path of
boot/efi to ESP partition that already exists and is used by windows. Unfortunately this partition does not exist in my system. I just had:
- Windows7_OS(C:) - 134 GB
- SYSTEM_DRV - 2,10 GB
I googled a bit and figured out that I do not even need a
boot/efi partition on my system. But because I couldn’t proceed with the installation without having
boot/efi, I decided to just create this
boot/efi partition for Linux.
I reserved 340 MB for it and chose fat32 for its type. I also created a partition for root (15GB, primary, ext4),
/home (20GB) and one for swap (4GB). I chose Grub2 as the bootloader. Because I couldn’t create any more primary partitions, root is the only primary partition and swap,
/home are placed in an extended partition. If you need any more information I will happily provide it.
I know that I didn’t reserve much storage for the home directory and root so far but my plan is to get used to Antergos and then reduce the Windows partitions and give this space to Antergos.
Now I can see all this partitions after booting into Windows but I just can’t boot Antergos. Does anyone know what went wrong and how to fix that?
It will be great if anyone can help me!
