• Installation Errors


    Every time I try to install Antergos, the kernel that opens up shows me this:

    early console in decompress_kernel

    Decompressing Linux. . . Parsing ELF. . . done.
    Booting the kernel.
    starting version 219
    error: /dev/sdb: No medium found
    error: /dev/sdc: No medium found
    error: /dev/sdb: No medium found
    error: /dev/sdc: No medium found

    Then it goes to this white screen that says something like “Oh no! Something has gone wrong” and gives me a log out button, but I don’t have a mouse on screen. I have my first boot option to removable device and quiet boot and fast startup disabled. I also tried on 2 pen drives, but still no luck. Any response is appreciated.

  • Then it goes to this white screen that says something like “Oh no! Something has gone wrong” and gives me a log out button, but I don’t have a mouse on screen.

    You don’t need one, simply press ENTER (or TAB and then ENTER, I do not recall exactly if the button has focus or not).

    Tell us how it goes.

    Cheers!

  • Thanks mate!

  • Another question, how do I boot into windows after dual booting

  • I am not quite sure I got your question.
    You simply reboot and choose from the GRUB the Windows option to boot…

  • Yea, I kinda don’t see that GRUB thing, how do I reinstall grub?

  • @3spooky7me can you boot into Antergos?

    After you boot into Antergos it’s just running this command in a terminal:

    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    

    Obviously you may need to replace /dev/sda by whatever drive you are booting from.

    If you still don’t see the windows boot option you can try rerunning grub-mkconfig (as root):

    grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    

    Cheers!

  • Should it be the root or swap?

  • @3spooky7me

    root, swap doesn’t have anything to do here.

  • Here’s what happens after I run “sudo grub-install /dev/sda:”

    [sudo] password for antergos:
    Installing for i386-pc platform.
    grub-install: warning: File system `ext2’ doesn’t support embedding.
    grub-install: warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged…
    grub-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.

  • It installs with --force, but I still don’t see grub. If I run grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg, I get:

    [[email protected] ~]# grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Generating grub configuration file …

  • @3spooky7me Ok, you know what? forget grub, can someone please help me to delete linux and boot back to windows 8.1 without any recovery cds

  • @3spooky7me said:

    “sudo grub-install /dev/sda:”

    I hope you didn’t add that colon at the end…

  • Never mind, sorry for the trouble, antergos just labeled windows 8.1 as windows vista
