• UEFI bootloader installation fails


    Hey there,
    I am trying to install Antergos on a GPT UEFI system using automatic partitioning and standard settings. In the end it says (translated to English) “there may have been problems during the bootloader installation”.
    I already tried this with all combinations of GRUB2 or gummiboot and encryption enabled or disabled. Cnchi is version 0.8.29
    I hope you can help.

    PS: I would attach logs but uploads just fail with “413 Request Entity Too Large”.
    EDIT: now uploaded them to my webhoster: http://yel-o.de/logs.tar

  • Hi, actually the installer log is located in the /tmp directory of the live environment. There’s nothing from the installer that is sent to the regular system journal.

  • @lots.0.logs I could see some interesting things in the journal, anyways, I now packed the cnchi.log too. Just redownload the logs.tar.

  • Give this a try and let me know the result please:

    After the installer is auto-updated, close it and run the following commands:

    su
    cd /usr/share
    rm -rf cnchi
    git clone http://github.com/antergos/cnchi.git cnchi
    exit
    sudo -E cnchi -dv
    
  • Didn’t work either, I updated the logs.

  • Just to confirm…You are rebooting between attempts right?

  • Have you tried selecting Grub as the bootloader with the latest version available on github?

  • Nope didn’t work either, no trying without encryption and grabbing the logs

    Didn’t work either without encryption… Logs are here: http://yel-o.de/cnchi.log
    I figured out I wouldn’t need to pack it as it’s only one log.
    Do you need any other files?

  • I will now try with LVM

  • This post is deleted!
  • I use autoformatting which should handle things correctly (?)

  • Actually, forget what I said in my last post…sorry! I’m pushing out v0.8.48 right now. Please let me know how it works for you. Thanks.

  • I had the same problem and with v0.8.48 it worked! :wink:

  • Did work once with grub2 and without lvm or encrytion. Otherwise somehow failed. I’m afraid I have to setup a production-ready system without UEFI now and can’t test anymore. If you haven’t I will test all combinations when I have time (next weekend).

  • @petabyteboy No worries. Thanks so much for reporting your results to us!

  • So is it working already? UEFI installation with gummiboot?

  • In our testing bootloader installation is working with gummiboot and grub. Please let us know if you have any trouble with it.
