pardon me if this is a duplicate of previous question, but haven’t seen in previous posts what the fix is for this issue. In my case am trying to install on SSD, currently on SATA port 1, sda1 is 500 mb EFI System Partition, sda2 Antergos Linux and sda3 4gb Linux Swap. Disk is formatted GPT. Compatibility on computer bios set to UEFI first but I’m hesitant to put as UEFI only, so have kept the Legacy option still there.
First time booted to USB and installed everything very quick. Upon reboot, however, booted only to say that partition not found, and every subsequent boot only gets:
or just blinking cursor.
Didn’t see any messages during install about Grub2 failing to load/install. Tried booting to various live distros. The Antergos USB and later burned DVD only boot to initial Antergos selection. No matter what chosen, now just boots to white screen or sometimes a long list of errors that I’m unfamiliar with.
blk_update_request: I/0 error, dev sr0, sector
Would be my understanding that sr0 would be the cd/dvd drive so am going to try and swap that out with another.
But what is the issue with the Grub not installing. Now trying to boot to any other disk or linux distro that I have installed is getting similar error or just blinking cursor.
Tried running boot-repair from Ubuntu live CD, bootloader restore utility from Parted Magic and then manually trying to mount EFI and chroot then install grub but it does not install. Boot-repair gives message to "enable GRub-efi-amd64 pkg from Antergos repos? Manual install of grub from live CD and chroot are complaining about an i386 file missing from GRUB. Tried installing rEFI program but other than an entry in bios and some new entries in a grub menu. Can only access any grub menu by using the Super Grub disk and then only when selecting an option similar to: grub-efix86_amd64 but selecting the Antergos, Ubuntu or Mint entries on grub boot menu just boot to blinking cursor or “GRUB”.
What am I doing wrong here? A bit frustrating and disapointing as was referred to Antergos by a friend because he said “everything just works” and I’m fed up with Ubuntu Studio and Linux Mint both having alsa audio issues that disable selection of my sound card.
