I am trying to get Antergos working on either an old windows 7 PC, or on a virtual machine on my current windows 7 laptop. In both cases, I get the same issues.
First when trying to booth from a bootable USB containing the Antergos ISO:
- I entered boot order menu and selected boot from USB
- Antergos bootup menu comes up and the useful options are “Start Antergos Live” and “Non-graphical boot”.
- I selected “Start Antergos Live”
The OS boots up, and I see the home screen, I can launch the terminal and do things. However, as soon as I click Cnichi or Install Antergos, I’m asked for a root password, and I don’t know what to enter here because I haven’t even set anything up yet. I have tried blank as well as the host machine’s Windows password. I have also tried re-creating the bootable USB by running the tool as administrator. Neither has helped. When the OS is booting up, not each task is shown as [OK]. There are a couple of tasks that show [FAILED], but I do still get to a functional screen, albeit with some issues, like the shutdown/sleep menu missing from top right corner, in addition to being asked for root password.
Next, I tried the same as a virtual machine on my current working windows 7 laptop, using virtual box, and i get the exact same error prompt.
Has anyone faced this issue before? Any tips would be appreciated. I really want to try Antergos out.
