• After installation hhd don't pass POST


    hi all!
    I have a little big problem, i have installed antergos on a pc:
    64bit 2core
    4gb ram
    nvidia gt440
    2hdd (1-1terabyte for storage, and the other one 500gb for S.O).

    PC works fine, before with windows and Ubuntu in dual-boot, after with only arch.
    the 500gb hdd works fine, during the installation i partitioned how the image explain:
    [url:19xe0r1a]http://imageshack.us/a/img36/5958/kgtj.png[/url:19xe0r1a]
    (the problem will be present also if i use -erase all the disk-)

    so the problem:
    after install Antergos on the 500gb hdd, it don’t pass POST. (I can’t go even into the BIOS)
    but if i disconnect the hdd pc go into the BIOS.
    If i erase the hdd, it will be detected by the BIOS.
    but, after a re-installation it don’t pass the POST.
    last thing, if i put on the hdd while the system is going, the hdd will be recognize and i can work on it.

    so…what can be, and what can i do?

    thx to all, and sorry for my bad english

  • it sounds like grub is not being properly installed for some reason. What you could do is use the livecd to chroot into the completed install on your drive and re install grub and kernel images. This is a good reference on that: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Change_Root][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Change_Root][1]

    Once you have setup chroot properly, you will want to run the following:

    pacman -Syu
    mkinitcpio -p linux
    grub-install --recheck && grub-install /dev/sdX

    Be sure to verify the correct drive number in fdisk first, as it may not be sdb this time.

    If you still cannot get it working, I suggest waiting a few days for our new version of the installer/livecd
