I’m sorry for my poor description of the issue, I’m a Windows user that are looking into making a transition to a Linux based OS, I have none whatsoever previous experience of Linux beyond that I’ve tried out Ubuntu and Linux shortly.
That’s OK. But Arch is probably the least user-friendly system to transit from Windowz. It is even considered as hard to use by some Linux users.
The thing is that I can’t boot into my installation at all, the only way for me to reach my files is by booting up by my live usb and mounting the already installed partions. I can’t get beyond the error message in the first time setup that I posted a picture of - After the failing of loading the Setup Virtual Console the screen just shows a blinking underline without proceeding any futher, after which I have to do a hard reset to get out of.
OK, forget about Setup Virtual Console message for a while. It’s just an old message issued earlier. It never blocks the system. At worst, you’ll get a wrong keybord in terminals only. The GUI uses the keyboard specified in another place.
The error that blocks the system is somewhere else. I can’t figure it out from your photo. Everything runs with [OK] exit code.
Virtual Console may be set later, once the system is installed. Again, it never blocks the boot process.
I found the vconsole.conf in /etc/ and opened it through the terminal as su and deleted the single line that was there “KEYMAP=se” and then saved the file, this I did due to following some instructions blindly that I found googling for a solution to the error.
Did you edit the /etc/console.conf in the live session? If yes, it has no sense.
It could be edited in the installed syste. The point where you don’t arrive.
Never delete the KEYMAP= parameter from the file. Others may be absent, but this one should be present.
My keyboard layout is “se” for a Swedish layout.
That’s the excellent value for Swedish.
To summarize. Your KEYMAP=se is good. Anyway, wrong country code here never blocks the boot. The true error is somewhere beyond that point. I can’t figure it out from attached image.
