• Antergos not found by GRUB after Mint18.2 upgrade


    Just what the title says. I upgraded Mint to 18.2 today and after reboot no Antergos. Is there some way I can fix this?
    Thanks in advance

  • Reconfiguring grub from the mint side might be the easiest. What do you see when you run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg? If this detects antergos partition, it should work.

    If this doesn’t work,

    you should chroot to your antergos / partition. You can do this from linux mint but it will be easier if you have live antergos usb. Use arch-chroot script in this case and run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg within Antergos.

    See here for details: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root

  • Thanks psscnp142. I tried the grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg command in Mint without success and will try chroot in the morning. Just loaded up a live usb and gathered the info from the wiki so I am prepped but just cracked a few brews so I better wait!
    Cheers!

  • to detect other OS (like windows) you need os-prober installed
