• \[SOLVED\] 2013.11.17 (64 bit) DVD STILL won't boot????


    DVD R - Burned a copy of [i:6882gx1i]Antergos 2013.11.17 (64 bit)[/i:6882gx1i] with K3B, xfburn and Brasero. None work on 2 different computers.

    I never reach a boot screen, for a split second when the dvd reads there is a few lines of text in top left corner, but then computer reboots and repeats.

    ISO was downloaded a couple hours ago from the official download page.

  • Since your system is x64, it should be able to boot from a USB stick. This ISO may not be a hybid (as very few people use DVDs anymore - although this may simply be an oversight and will be fixed in the future) so seems to not work with DVDs.

    If you can, I suggest purchasing a small USB stick (if you don’t already have one

    I hope this helps, as I know how frustrating this can be.

    Please let us know how it goes for you…

  • Just thought I would confirm what MaNNa was saying. I tried to use a cd/dvd to install from but it wouldn’t work. As soon as I put it on a usb I can install fine. Figured I would pass that on in case you haven’t tried it yet.

  • I might try that, I suppose. But as far as “very few people use DVD’s anymore”, I beg to differ. At least in my experience (both via my circle of friends and Linux friends), the opposite is the case. And while a “few dollars” might buy a USB stick, it will also buy 5-10 DVD’s. I’ve never had luck with these USB stick installs. Always had issues. I’ve tried several methods, many distros. at least 75% fail. DVD’s (for the most part) are fool-proof.

    Again, this is my experience, and just my 2 cents.

  • Isn’t that amazing! This what makes the world go round

    My experience over the years since starting with Linux in 1996 is just the opposite!

    Whatever works for you my friend is good

  • um… I have the same problem… burnt w/brasero,gnomebaker, k3b, xfburn… no avail… is there a “reason” why the dvd doesnt work anymore at all (so it seems?) and i’m searching the forums, on how to even use a usb drive to install it…

    Hi,

    We are still investigating the CD/DVD boot issues but it seems to also be happening using Arch media as well. The exact method to boot from the USB once you write the image varies depending on pc manufacturer but this should help you: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners’_Guide#Boot_the_installation_medium][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Be][1] … ion_medium

  • Well, nothing I’ve done has worked via USB. All fail. Followed the link above (and others) with zero luck.

    Hopefully a proper Live DVD will happen soon. Eager to try, but until the DVD medium becomes usable, I’m out.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

    I wonder what is causing this issue for you. I have tested both the 11/17 image and the latest testing build and was able to successfully boot from USB and from DVD+R. For the DVD+R I did not do anything special, I used Xfburn and a 4x write speed. For the USB I used Suse Imagewriter.

    See this post for where to get Suse ImageWriter: [http://forum.antergos.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1259&p=4513&hilit=suse#p4513][0]">viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1259&p=4513&hilit=suse#p4513

    Obviously we will do whatever we can to assist you in troubleshooting this but it does seem to be an issue specific to you as I cannot reproduce it and believe me I have tried

    Would you mind to please tell us the exact steps you have taken to image, boot and install from USB? Also, any errors you get would be helpful.

  • Have to agree with others. I wanted to check out Antergos & SolydX (Debian vs Arch) tried two different discs., two different burners & two different dvd writers. The boot just resets & reboots. No problem with SolydX or any other distro I have tried. Wont even go to LiveCD

    All DVD types are supported. I’ve personally used DVD+R. Another user has reported using DVD-RW as well.
    I’ve used both Xfburn and K3b but other burning software should also work.
    For best results, write speed should be 4x or slower.

    For USB media (Preferred Method) we recommend using either dd command or Suse ImageWriter.

  • I think there is something very wrong with the installation on the iso’s, live i can run antergos but install is a no go.
    I have tried to burn iso’s with xfburn, usb with imagewriter and still no install it is always stuck at [i:1h12j897]‘retrieving packages’[/i:1h12j897]

    Seriously? Does it have to be a silver DVD or will a black one work. Sorry to be sarcastic ( i’m British, we cant help it) but something is not right when you have to be so specific. I wanted a XFCE rolling release distro & it came down to Antergos for Arch vs SolydX for Debian. I have SolydX installed with no problems at all.

    If this gets resolved so it can be burned & installed like every other distro I will give it a look.

    To be clear, the recommendations are not specifications. The live image is capable of booting from all types of CD/DVDs. The only type I personally own at the moment is DVD+R. I used those in my recent tests to try and reproduce this issue. After burning three perfectly functioning DVD’s I am unable to reproduce the issue. I plan to update the post once I have verified other DVD’s.

    Are you using the latest official release image ([antergos-2013.11.17-x86_64.iso[/url:1ybepumn])? The more recent testing images are not to be considered stable. Work on Cnchi development is being done every day. There are going to be times when changes are made that temporarily break installation (as it goes with any development branch). If it is the official release image that you are unable to successfully install with I’d like to figure out what the issue may be. If you don’t mind, could you post the contents of /tmp/cnchi.log after the installation has stalled?
