I’m trying to install antergos alongside windows 10 on my Asus laptop. I’ve shrunk my C: drive so I have 50GB of allocated space and created a live usb drive I can boot into antergos from. When I start it up I connect to my wifi network and the installer updates. I can go through all the steps up to where I see the page where the partition table should be, but it’s not showing up. Anyone else have this issue? I’m unable to install because of it.
Can't see partition table in Antergos installer
@Atlas I never experienced that, but are you sure you partitioned the hd correctly? Didn’t you erase some partition?
The way you explained you must have 3 partitions now:
- for booting win 10 (system reserved) [probably sda1]
- installed win 10 [probably sda2]
- empty one
One thing you can do is open the terminal on Antergos live cd and type
sudo gpartedand then verify the partition table
blkidon terminal to see your partitions as well.
[[email protected] ~]$ lsblk
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
loop0 7:0 0 1.6G 1 loop /run/archiso/sfs/root-image
sda 8:0 1 15.1G 0 disk
└─sda1 8:1 1 15.1G 0 part /run/archiso/bootmnt
when I run gparted it only shows me my usb drive. It’s like it’s not even detecting that there is a hard drive at all.
It seems the ISO is not detecting your disks.
Are you booting in UEFI mode?
sudo fdisk -lshow anything at all?
Have you tried another distro (not Arch based)? Ubuntu, for instance.
Run it and open GParted, tell us if your drive is shown or not.
To be honest, I have no idea whatsoever of what can be wrong here.
