• Cant boot into live medium


    I am trying to install Antergos on my laptop:
    Lenovo Y410p
    1tb HDD
    8gb ram
    Nvidia Geforce 755m AND Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics.

    The problem is the live disk will not boot. It starts to boot & begins running through the typical text startup. Gets to “reached target graphical interface” & stops. I treid several times. Let it sit for 15 minutes, nothing went any further.
    I re-downloaded & treid again.
    Same problem.
    I ran a checksum, everything was good.
    I was ablw to boot & install in a virtual machine (virtual box) no problem. The problems only occur when trying to boot on a physical machine.
    Any clues here?

  • I did find a similar thread which provided this solution:

    One of our devs also asked for a testing iso but 64 bits, so here you have it, but it is nothing official, and this iso just fixes the Intel bug

    64bit
    [http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergo][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergo][1] … x86_64.iso

    32bit
    [http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergo][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergo][1] … 4-i686.iso

    The problem is when I click these links I get a 404 not found error,

  • We are working hard to release a new livecd release including the newest version of our installer which adds a lot more features within the next few days. Have you tried booting with the number one (1) added to the boot command line? When the screen comes up just press 1 you will see that it starts typing in the box. That will take you to console that will give you two options. Many users have had success pressing “D” to continue boot. Hope that helps; Oh and btw, Welcome to Antergos

    Regards,

  • At which point am I supposed to press 1? When I did it at the boot menu, it only stopped boot process. I sis it at the freeze point & nothing occured. So when do I press 1?

  • Press one after iso boots. You will see an antergos screen with a few options like hw test.

  • So I get to the Antergos boot screen & I press 1. This does show in the “boot options” command line, but it does not send me to a console. Hitting enter after entering 1 does not work either as it just begins the boot process.
    I assume I misunderstanding & doing something wrong. So please try to explain further.

  • It is supposed to start boot in single user mode, from there you can press ctrl + d to continue, and it should bring you to gnome desktop.
