    i mean the Antergos-installer-stick to boot from it and get into your [chroot] Antergos system.

  • Ok, I understood that a bit later. But I have never had that and generating that now is supposedly impossible.

  • Or installer-stick? Well, I did have it, but exactly that USB stick/disk/thumb drive was last night used for that BIOS update. I didn’t have any other useless device for that purpose… damn!

    likely the same issue here

  • True. Can I regenerate some working installation USB stick to allow tuning the BIOS?

  • If you get a working PC, you can do, rewrite the GRUB loader

  • Ok, I need to bring up my old PC running an ancient Fedora. The only reason I started using a newer was that this one is more silent and much quicker. Otherwise the old PC was perfect! Hopefully it can write this USB disk again with an installer of Antergos.

  • Thanks @joekamprad! I will create a bootable USB disk in the evening at home.

    This actually reminds me of the initial issue I had when installing different Linux variations until I bumped into Antergos. The high-end graphics card seem to be the issue why the PC worked only at most for a minute until it got stuck. The new graphics card made a change that caused the same, but more seldom. Not even every day, but sometimes, as yesterday, several times during the night. So, that it can be there was nothing wrong with that original graphics card as there is nothing wrong with this new one either. But there s most likely something wrong elsewhere. For example, in the BIOS. It would be nice to able to use that original graphics card. It was able to do much more. And I could hook two displays into it.

  • Ok, now I have booted the Live version from my newly written USB disk. I have root prompt and I can see that there are partitions on 1T disk as follows:
    /dev/sda1 size 200M type: EFI system
    /dev/sda2 size 256M type: Linux fs
    /dev/sda3 size 923.3G type: Linux fs
    /dev/sda4 size 7.8G type: Linux swap

    How should I proceed?

  • Way is to chroot into your system on the hd and reanimate EFI and Grub so that your Bios recognize it again und you can choose and boot it …

    But i do not know how the EFI GRUB install is done by Antergos installer, i do not have any EFI System here.

    And as i can see from your partitition list you get a /boot and a /EFI partition…

    So please @developers or someone know about join here!

  • Thanks @joekamprad! But how to use chroot command in this case and how to give that grub_install subsequently?

  • I tried a little, but could only boot to a graphical cnchi. Probably the EFI is not the correct boot partition.

    Need to continue tomorrow.

  • chroot is done from terminal with:
    first mounting the partitionions then arch-chroot to it and you are in your hd system, able to run any command from shell… But first i need to know how the efi setup is done by antergos.

    As far as i understand you need to add your Antergos to the Boottable inside EFI-Boot-Bios system…

  • Thanks @joekamprad! Looks pretty similar to my situation.

    I will try to get back to this in the evening.

  • I install EFI system inside virtualbox to investigate…

  • Awesome! Thanks a lot!

  • you can have a search for a Secure Boot option inside your efi/bios and disable this …

  • Hi,

    Just to clarify, to chroot to that system I’d boot from the USB and open a terminal:

    sudo su
    mount /dev/sda3 /mnt
    mount /dev/sda2 /boot
    mount /dev/sda1 /boot/EFI
    arch-chroot /mnt
    

    Cheers!
