I just installed Antergos on a new machine and I’m having this really stange issue with grub that I’ve never seen before. If I don’t touch anything and let it load the default option (antergos), everything boots just fine. As soon as I start using my keyboard, thing get really stange. First 5 strokes are ok, next few start to lag a couple of seconds, the next will lag entire minutes or the grub loader will outright crash. The os prober Windows entry works only half the time.
Everything else on that drive works perfectly: the antergos install and both Windows, so it’s not a failing drive issue.
I re-installed grub and used grub-mkconfig to regen grub.cfg. Same deal.
I tried uninstall Antergos grub theme, no luck.
My hooks in mkinitcpio.conf:
HOOKS=“base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap encrypt filesystems fsck” <- keyboard hook is there
Modules: MODULES=“dm_mod dm_crypt ext4 aes_x86_64 sha256 sha512”
I tried swapping out keyboards, issue persists.
I tried changing the resolution from 1080p to 680x480 but the problem still persists.
The grub on the live cd works without a hitch.
The SSD is mbr and the filesystems on it are:
Primaries: ntfs (1 system, 2 windows partitions: 10/7)
/ (luks / ext4)
2 ntfs for storage
Machine is an Asus Gene VIII z170m motherboard with a i7 6700k, 32GB RAM. I’m running it with just the intel gpu for now. I had made fresh installs of both Windows 7 and Windows 10 on the SSD before installing Antegos.
What do you guys think I should try next?
