Ok so far only Mcgyver way worked, using virtualbox hehehe.
*unfortunately Antergos is unbootable under VB when a partition is created during installation, only “erase and install” works in VB, so i can’t boot here for further tests.
For now, i can assume it will work, but i’ll test on my old pc.
NOT TESTED, BE CAREFUL IF YOU WANT TO TRY!!!
- Install Antergos in USB (real install not burned image)
1.1) optional, set aditional partitions like swap, /home etc (pendrive won’t boot in VB)
Boot the USB
- Install VB and all it’s stuffs
- Create a link to the real hd with
sudo VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename path/to/file/filename.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda
OBS: can be sda, sdb or even partitions if you like
3.1) Run VB as sudo
3.2) Create an empty VB, and set to use the filename.vmdk created as disk
3.3) Add the Antergos iso in VM
- Start the VM, it will boot into the livecd, check if the hd was detected (browse the folders), install antergos the way you want in the real hd.
That way you have an USB installed Antergos with the ability to install in real hd, through VB.
Yeah, it’s weird, not tested yet, so i don’t recommend using it right now. And yes, i really like VB
Possible correct solutions:
The developers adapt cnchi to run from an installed system (so far only work with .iso images)
Adapt some Ubuntu tools that do this job (i have no knowledge for that)
Marking as solved for now. I’ll investigate when i have time and get back here.
