    What does Fail safe - boot option do?


    When you install Antergos and boot it, you can see the fail safe boot option.

    What does it actually do?

    And would, if you run latest Kernel, the LTS kernel be a failsafe incase an update screws with your installation?

    Hi:

    Always installing archlinux system, initramfs image is generated with the modules and the hooks detected by the system, sometimes hardware can fail.
    Fail safe mode load image initramfs with all modules loaded by the kernel for try to boot the system.
    Hardware detection is difficult , you can modify the initcpio.conf with the modules and hooks required.
    You can install the two kernel (lts and release) and choose in the grub you start it , but you will always have two kernel and two failsafe modes.

    Cheers

    @Archrysler Thank you very much for this explanation, hope I never need it, but those things are good to know.
