  • If you have an Intel or Nvidia Optimus graphic card, there’s a known bug with the default acceleration method UXA and GDM that hangs the boot process.

    You can test this iso [http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergos-2013.05.14-i686.iso][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/antergo][1] … 4-i686.iso which sets the acceleration method to SNA and let me know if it works. I just have that i686 image until next release.

  • Good information there, as I was having the same issue. Wish I had caught that before I burned a DVD of the ISO that will not work on any of my 3 regular machines.

  • or you could just try add nomodeset in boot param line for a quick fix which saves you all the trouble downloading iso again ;D

    i am just waiting for x64 release now, or should i just use migration arch method :/

    To Err is Human, To Forgive is Divine

  • Any ETA for the fix in x64?

    Thanks!

  • 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

  • Thanks for the replay, unfortunately for me this won’t work. I’m using a nVidia GeForce GTX 570.

    If you guys need any test I could do don’t hesitate to let me know.

    Do you see any nouveau error on boot? Yours could be a nouveau (nvidia free driver) problem.

    Check this bug report to see if it is the same thing [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=783535][0]">[https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=783535][1]

  • Actually I gave it a try to the new x64 file and is actually working, installing as we speak.

    I guess I was doing something wrong but I have no idea what, but I’m happy now.

  • Have the same problem.

    Iso: latest x64
    Laptop: Lenovo t61p
    GFX: Nvidia Quaddro FX 570M
    Kernel driver in use: nouveau

    Any fix? I need an OS!

    I have the same problem too. I tried all of the isos linked and the latest x64 release.
    My graphics card is a [gtx650 ti boost[/url:23r9xeb5]
    I can use alt + F2 to access another terminal but when i try to start the installer from there(by running antergos-setup) i get an error saying something about it cant start x.[/quote:23r9xeb5]

    That is because it’s trying to run gnome-terminal, just run this instead to have the CLI installer.

    • Configure your network first
    • sudo sh /arch/setup]0

    Thanks

  • I tried starting the antergos installer with the nomodeset boot option but with no success. I also tried installing with by logging in to another terminal as root and running “/arch/setup” the installation worked but when i booted antergos i get the same problem, “hanging at [ OK ] reached target graphical interface”.

    I tried reinstalling the nouveau driver and nvidia-beta from the AUR but it was conflicting with some mesa thing when i tried to install it so i just left it. I have installed cinnarch on the same computer before with no problems.

  • I also receive “the reached target graphical interface” after a 64 bit CLI install. The graphic installer wouldn’t even boot that far with both 64 and 32. I have Lenovo R61 with a Nvidia quatro NVS 140M. I tried it with all nvidia drivers with no results. I’m now going to try the install ISO with the intel bug fix.

  • did anyone find a solution to this problem?
    just installed the latest iso (2013.05.30) and have the same problem on a macbook pro 8.2

  • I’m experiencing this same issue trying to install the newest (2013.08.20-1-i686) version on my laptop which has an Intel card. I tried adding ‘nomodeset’ with the same result.

  • hi,
    I am using linux distros since more than 10 years and want to try antergos on the Medion laptop.
    the live cd runs until: “Reached target Graphical Installer”.
    it stops at: “Starting GNOME Display Manager”.
    it does not matter which bootcode I use (I looked at the ArchWiki).
    has anyone an idea how to run it ?
    thnxs.
    peter
