• Installation failed


    Probably, grub bootloader installed incorrectly. It took the system to complete the installation of the bootloader about 20 minutes at the end of the installation process.

    When I reboot I get a message, “you have to run kernel first, press to continue”

    The os-prober didn’t detect other flavors either, including an antergos KDE flavor.

    How to repair the bootloader?

  • can you give us the output of:

    $ sudo fdisk -l
    

    This will give also filesystems of your partitions.

    Thanks for replying.
    I already solved the problem by firing up the live usb; then, I mounted the partition and run the “grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg” command from the live USB and it reinstalled the bootloader correctly.

    Though the os-prober is very slow; it took more than 10 minutes to update.

  • Glad your problem is solved! Could you please mark this thread as “Solved”?

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it
