• EFI boot with Windows installed


    Hi guys,
    First thanks for your great work with antergos, been using cinnarch back in the day, switched to arch linux, but some months ago my hdd went pop, lost everything and till now I didn’t had time to install linux again.
    Since I am not really in the mood to spend half day installing arch I opted for antergos.
    I am now running UEFI in my Thinkpad X230, and I have windows 7 x64 already installed on it.
    The good news: Antergos boots flawlessly, not the same can be said about arch linux.
    The “bad news” when partitioning (I put a 100gb partition for /) it says I need EFI Boot, where should I put it?
    In case it is needed my setup is:

    Thinkpad X230 - latest bios, from 2 days ago
    16Gb Ram
    Samsung 830 256Gb SSD with latest firmware
    Intel 6205 Wifi
    Intel HD4000 Graphics Card
    Realek ALC302 sound card

    Everything worked nice in previous arch installations so I guess I won’t have problems, just need to figure this out.
    Attached are my partitions, the Data one is going to be for Antergos.

    Thank you all

  • Hi,

    You should mount your EFI partition as /boot. Just make sure you [b:3tq4vc3w]do not [/b:3tq4vc3w]select the format option

    Cheers!

  • Thanks, worked like a charm.
    Antergos installed, but grub didn’t find my windows install.
    Using grub-customizer it gives me an error saying:

    grub-mkconfig couldn't be executed successfully. error message:  
    Generating grub configuration file ...  
    chmod: impossível aceder a «/etc/grub.d/10\_linux»: No such file or directory
    

    any ideas?

  • Don’t use grub-customizer…it never seems to get it right with Arch systems. Open a terminal and run:

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

    Let me know if it completes successfully. Also if you could grab the installer log from /var/log that would be helpful. It should be named cnchi-2014-24-05.log (or similar to that).

    Cheers!

    First thanks for your patience.
    Here is the output of that command:

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg  
    > [sudo] password for skinnie:   
    > Generating grub configuration file ...  
    > chmod: impossível aceder a «/etc/grub.d/10\_linux»: No such file or directory
    

    and here is the log [https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4h1o6nhhe85rdw/cnchi-20140524-235452.log][0]">[https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4h1o6nhhe85r][1] … 235452.log
    I think it may have been something wrong with instalation, because in my 1st attempt to install antergos I run grub-customizer and it ran fine, but ended up with only windows entry

  • Download the file below and then copy it into /etc/grub.d Make it executable (chmod +x) and run grub-mkconfig again. It should work

    Thanks, worked like a charm.Great support that you give!
    It put me in first place antergos with lts kernel wich didn’t worked for me, risked with grub-customizer and now everything is working nice.
    Other problem, chrome is hanging, uninstall and install solves but as soon as I reboot the computer without closing it , when I open it again it hangs.Any idea?

    Just another thing, why in the installation I can’t choose for example english as the language for the OS and Portuguese as the input?
    I had to choose portuguese for all…
    I figured out how to do it post install but…

  • Glad to see you resolved the grub issue

    We have discussed the issue of selecting different language than keyboard layout previously but I don’t quite remember the result of that discussion. I will bring it up again and see what we can do. Let us know if you encounter any other issues. Hope you enjoy your new Antergos system

    Cheers!

    thanks I will install chrome, I never knew about the differences, now I learnt.
    Since you are dev, any idea why the isos don’t get updated here [http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/testing/][0]">[http://mirrors.antergos.com/iso/testing/][1] ?

  • We had to suspend the automatic testing builds. It’s only temporary. They will be back soon. You can check [http://repo.antergos.info/iso/testing][0]">[http://repo.antergos.info/iso/testing][1] which is currently holding the images we will be officially releasing today or tomorrow.

    Sorry to say but it is the same with chrome, as soon as for some reason I shut down the computer without closing chrome next time it gives the warning if I want to restore, and either if I restore or go to some url, it freezes.

  • Try google-chrome-dev from the AUR. It is the chrome nightly build. Its what I use everyday. If it works for you then at least you will have confirmed the bug is fixed. If not then you should report it to the chromium bug tracker.

    Hey guys! What is the status of UEFI isos? I’ve downloded [antergos-2014.05.25-x86_64.iso[/url:20swrxye], and used [RUFUS[/url:20swrxye] to create bootable USB and I’m afraid there is still the same bug described [here[/url:20swrxye].][4]][3]][2]

    I used win32diskimager with that iso and booted and run without problems.
    In fact arch ISOS don’t boot in my setup but antergos do (that image and the one from 14.05)][4]][3]][2]

    I can’t make [b:3lwtt24l]UEFI[/b:3lwtt24l] boot usb drive with [i:3lwtt24l]dd[/i:3lwtt24l] or Suse Image Writer. Only old version (IIRC from March) is bug free and I can use RUFUS with it.
