  • Hi,

    Is this the image you downloaded? [http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/testing/antergos-2013.11.10-x86_64.iso][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/testing][1] … x86_64.iso

    That is the latest and every test we did was successful. Did you verify the MD5 sum to rule out a corrupt download? What method are you using to write the image to usb/dvd? Try writing your image with ImageWriter, it has never failed me

    Linux Version (Arch): [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/imagewriter/][0]">[https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/imagewriter/][2]
    Linux Version (deb): [https://launchpad.net/~i-5lmm/+archive/][0]">[https://launchpad.net/~i-5lmm/+archive/][3] … _amd64.deb
    Windows Version: [https://github.com/downloads/openSUSE/k][0]">[https://github.com/downloads/openSUSE/k][4] … Writer.exe

    Hopefully this takes care of it. Please let me know! Good luck!

  • Yes, it is lastest build MD5 checks on both ISOs. I used imgBurn to write to [b:23uo4o4t]DVD[/b:23uo4o4t] , official “stable” iso which i tried 14 days ago booted up just fine but there was that error with fraphical interface.

    I cant try to boot up from flash, i have none.

  • Have you previously been successful using imgBurn to create bootable DVD’s? The bootloop you are experiencing points to a the media being corrupt in some way. If you are certain imgBurn produces images that work on your pc then we can skip trying other software. (I’d still try at least one other program if it were me). I have checked my usual sources for any similar issues. One thing to consider is this:

    @"Arch’s said:

    The quality of optical drives and the discs themselves varies greatly. Generally, using a slow burn speed is recommended for reliable burns. If you are experiencing unexpected behaviour from the disc, try burning at the lowest speed supported by your burner.[/quote:1rym9oqe]

    Without being able to reproduce this issue locally or having any additional occurrences reported, it’s difficult to know whether this is an issue with the iso or with your software/hardware. If you could give the slower burn speed a try and use different burning software so we cover all the bases. In the meantime I will continue to research this and do more tests. We have another iso build scheduled on the 17th although I don’t think the image is where the problem is.

  • Thrust me, i alredy budned with it a lots of ISOs (mostly to upgrade Ubuntu or try new distro) and as i typed, lastest Antegrgos ISO worked just fine.

    Im using DVD-RAM (yes, RAM, not RW), which never failed me, it is burning slow but i can coun on it.

    So is it working for you now?

  • No, i ment lastest stable, that worked. From october(?)

    Newest reboots just after POST.

  • I just realized that it was not just you I was helping. I split the topics for less confusion

    Thanks!

  • ISO was from September.

    I was able to boot it, but there was the error with graphical interface, i made it somehow to Gnome but instalaion failed. Downlaoding the lastest (17.11) build now.

  • Same problem in 17.11 32b, reboots just after post.

    MD5 ok, burn and verifed in imgBurn.

  • Something in our iso setup must not get along with imgburn. I can’t think of anything that would cause this other than a bad disc or corrupt burn. Since we ruled that out, I will consult with the other devs and see if they ever seen anything similar to this. In the meantime you could try burning the dvd from command line

    sudo growisofs -Z /dev/dvdrw=iso\_image\_here.iso

  • I downloaded again this morning and burned in K3b PClos and it still won`t boot and reboots again, sorry!

    Unfortunately, without more information there isn’t anything more I can suggest. If there were an error or any other clue shown before it reboots that would atleast give a direction to look in. You may have better results if you write the image to a USB drive instead. I know that is not the answer you are looking for but it’s all I have at this point. Sorry!

    Best Regards,

  • if this can help my live cd also reboots, but in UEFI mode it boots just fine, then the gui installation would hang at 100% so I would do CLI installation. I’ve been dodging all these issues and have succesfully installed Antergos haha

  • While booting from DVD-Rw I have got the following error:

    ISOLINUX 6.02 ETCDisolinux: Disk error 04, Ax = 4207, drive

    I downloaded the 64 bit version with torrent and checked the md5 sum. I just burned Ubuntu on the same dvd-rw and I can boot.

  • While booting from DVD-Rw I have got the following error:

    DVD-RW are terrible, they dont last and are generating errors, bug DVD-RAM.

  • Tooday, i bought 8GBflash drie for 150Kč (about 5 EUR) and created bootable USB with

    [b:1jbt0yw9]Multisystem [/b:1jbt0yw9] - Best tool available [http://ubuntuone.com/1eFsQuRalh6boZiVlhVmyl][0]">[http://ubuntuone.com/1eFsQuRalh6boZiVlhVmyl][1]

    It is working.

    But you guys seriously need to work that DVD bug out.

  • I need to get some more information before I can say for sure but I it looks like DVD’s may not be supported for the boot media in upstream Arch. If that turns out to be correct then it is certainly the reason for all of the troubles you all have been experiencing. I will update when I know more. In the meantime, USB is the recommended medium to use for Antergos images.

    Best Regards,
