• Antergos not in boot list - HP 255 G5 laptop

    Hello there!

    I am having trouble installing Antergos on my new HP 255 G5 laptop. The laptop was supplied new and without an operating system.

    I initially created a live USB using one of the graphical tools, yet this was obviously doomed to fail. Subsequently, I created a live USB using the command line as per the official Antergos wiki. This seems to have been a success:
    *449+1 records in
    449+1 records out
    1884717056 bytes (1.9 GB) copied, 291.559 s, 6.5 MB/s

    However, when attempting to start the new laptop, Antergos was not in the list of operating systems (I was only offered FreeDos and “HP Documents”).

    Does anyone have any ideas what could be done?


  • Hi!

    I managed to solve the issue: It was a simple matter of using Zorin’s image writer, which worked perfectly.

    However, I now have a new problem: Whenever I attempt to install Antergos using Cnchi, I receive the following error:

    “Cannot create download package list (metalinks)… Please reference the following number when reporting this error: 595705.”

    I read in another threat that others seem to be experiencing the same problem…

  • @sqi8L , it seems the issue has been resolved already…
