• How to Boot Antergos Iso from hardisk for installation?


    I have screwed up my lenovo boot menu somehow. I rely on grub2 to boot/install ubuntu. I want to boot antergos. I have tried he following but it doesnt work.
    set imgdevpath="/dev/disk/by-uuid/04DE-B64D"
    set isofile=’/home/amrit/Downloads/antergos-2015.11.14-x86_64.iso’
    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisodevice=/dev/loop0 img_dev=$imgdevpath img_loop=$isofile
    initrd (loop)/arch/boot/x86_64/archiso.img

  • Hi.
    You want to boot Arch based distro from HDD like you can with Gparted, Systemrescue CD, and other distro’s like Linux Mint, etc…?
    Not possible.
    Not with Arch systems. Only with systems like those described above.
    I checked around the net several times before.
    Have also tried quiet a few times as well myself with various settings in the 40_custom file.
    No go.
    check this thread that I started on this same subject.

  • That is about iso emulation right? What about extracting the iso? Then will it be possible? Else it’s impossible for me to install arch if i can’t access my uefi

  • Extracting?
    That I don’t know. Sorry.
    What about system rescue CD? I am none too sure if can use that for fixing UEFI, though?

    I have one idea though. I have a rooted Android. I also have Drive droid installed. With Drive Droid, I can boot any iso linux to my laptop using that.

    Do you have rooted Android? If so, you could use that and install, using the apk’s link, to download Antergos onto your Android and try to extract or fix your system.
