• Windows 10 and Antergos


    Yes I’m not a fan of updates from Windows 10 but I have to use it for work. About every six months a new version of Windows 10 downloads and installs automatically. My question is every time this happens I loose access to the boot loader. Is their a way to restore the boot loader without having to re-install Antergos?

    Thanks,

    Tony

  • Hi there!

    If you are using a DELL computer, then under the Boot Order options there should be a place to add another one manually. Within there, you can actually find Antergos_Grub.

    If you are currently using a different brand, then I don’t know how to help you since each company (unfortunately) decides that they must have a special BIOS menu just for them.

    Hope this helps though!

  • Thank you for your replay, it’s not a Dell it’s a Toshiba. I was wondering if their was a way to repair grub? I’m sorry i’m new to Antergos and basically new to Linux. Only really used Mint/Ubuntu for awhile.

    Thank you for your help, I did not find anyway to add Linux or Windows to the boot loader.

  • I would try Boot Repair out. It might be able to solve your problem for you:slight_smile:.

    i’m new to Antergos and basically new to Linux.

    Welcome to Linux then! May your journey into Antergos (and Linux in general) be a smooth, easy one!

  • @tpalermo30 on linux mostly everything is possible !!!
    you can simple boot up from the LiveIso and reinstall grub, the configuration are stored inside the filesystem of linux, and will not be erased.

    Process is like this:

    1. boot into Live Environment
    2. open a terminal
    3. mount / to /mnt, mount /boot to /mnt/boot (if you have this on different partitions)
    4. sudo arch-chroot /mnt
    5. grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    6. grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Antergos-grub (for EFI systems)
      6a. grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sdx (for Bios-systems)

  • Thanks @joekamprad! I was not aware of that trick! I’ll definitely keep it in mind:slight_smile:.

  • @tpalermo30 I’ve been dealing with the same thing. Need some things on Windows so dual boot for me.

    I noticed it’s especially bad after the Windows 10 Creator’s update, regardless of Arch, Fedora, or Ubuntu. As @joekamprad said, you basically need to boot via a live usb and make a new grub install. Don’t forget the command “sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg” for Grub to actually search and find the Windows boot loader.

    It’s pretty annoying, but only happens once every few months.

  • @mach01dan said in Windows 10 and Antergos:

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    Thanks I did find this command, # grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg here on the [Arch Wiki](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB#Generate_the_main_configuration_file which fixed the issue for me. My question is what’s the difference between the command you gave me and the one I used?

    Thank you for everyone who gave me help.

  • Should be exactly the same command.

    They are one and the same. # means you need sudo *before the command. If you used it without & worked, that was because you had already elevated permissions as sudoer because you had used sudo in a previous command.
