• Restore rsync backup


    Hey guys,

    so I got my laptop back from the repair center and since I had problems booting (although the HDD and SDD with their data are still there) I wanted to restore my rsync backup from my USB drive.

    So after doing it the complicated way and installing Antergos again and then copying my USB data into the root partition again I cannot boot anymore into Arch.
    It starts and then it says

    A start job is running for dev-disk-by\\x2duuid-3E06\\x2dE4C9.device (.... / 1min 30s)\_ 
    

    then

      
    [TIME] Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\\x2duuid-3E06\\x2dE4C9.device  
    [DEPEND] Dependency failed for /boot.  
    [DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems.  
    
    

    After timing out it goes on with a lot of OKs but then I get into the emergency mode

    As written in the rsync article in the wiki I took a look at fstab and grub.cfg but I think they should be fine now:

    fstab: [http://pastebin.com/Kf4XsKi4][0]">[http://pastebin.com/Kf4XsKi4][1] (the windows thing was uncommented before but wanted to fix that later)

  • So what your saying is that after this:

     Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\\x2duuid-3E06\\x2dE4C9.device  
    [DEPEND] Dependency failed for /boot.  
    [DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems.
    

    is basically when your having problems booting into arch. You mentioned that you had to re-install Antergos. I would surmise that between the time that you had your laptop fixed and the time that you re-installed Antergos, there were probably some updates that resulted in some dependancies being removed due to Arch systems being a rolling release OS with updates being constant. When you tried to re-insert/re-install some of your stuff from USB, the USB content was now older than the newly installed/updated OS. That’s my opinion. What files/folders did you attempt to put back in from your USB, if you don’t mind me asking? Were they crucial file systems? Were they software file systems? Just curious.

  • The UUID for /boot (3E06-E4C9) is correct ? You may check this with

    blkid -o list
    
  • Unfortunately I “bypassed” this problem by installing it from scratch again :/
