• \[SOLVED\] no such device after clean install


    Just did a fresh installation of Antergos with the latest stable iso. After installing with both the installers grub displays but when I press enter or wait a while I get the following error:

      
    no such device: [long number]  
    Loading Linux core repo kernel  
    error: no such partition  
    Loading initial ramdisk  
    error: You need to load the kernel first  
    
    

    This sound like HELP!!

  • I have the exact same problem with a fresh install on a clean disk. Latest .iso.

    The UUID that shows up in the error message is nothing like my real UUID of /dev/sda

    I put in the LiveCD again, mounted /dev/sda1 (boot) and looked into ‘grub/grub.cfg’. I replaced the wrong UUID with my real one and now the error message is:

    Loading Linux core repo kernel ...  
    error: file not found /boot/vmlinuz-linux not found.  
    Loading initial ramdisk ...  
    error: you need to load the kernel first.  
      
    Press any key to continue...
    

    How can I make it boot /dev/sda3 (root) ?

    Also, I do have ‘/dev/sda1/vmlinuz-linux’, but it searches for ‘/boot/vmlinux-linux’.

    Switched in bios: AHCI/compatible but didnt matter.

  • Our fault

    We had some full paths pointing to grub-mkconfig commands which changed from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin

    So your problem is that grub is installed, but the mkconfig didn’t run.

    The Cli installer is now fixed. It will take a little bit longer to fix Cnchi.

    You just need to run the grub-mkconfig from a chroot to fix it

    Sorry

  • No problem

    No problem but I’m a Linux noob so could you please show me how to fix it. I like opensuse but not as much as Antergos so please give me the steps to take! Tnx!

  • Run the liveCD and mount your root partition in /mnt for example. If you have a separate boot partition mount it in the /mnt/boot directory after mounting root.

    Then mount these other things:

    sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev  
    sudo mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys  
    sudo mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc
    

    Now you can chroot into /mnt like this:

    sudo chroot /mnt
    

    Finally, execute grub-mkconfig:

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

    And that should do the work

  • Fails on grub-mkconfig.

    Generating grub.cfg ...  
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux  
    Found initrd image: /boot/initramfs-linux.img  
    WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad: No such file or directory. Falling back to internal scanning.  
    No volume groups found  
    done
    

    When I restart and try to boot, after grub this comes:

    ROOT\_ANTERGOS: clean, 135252/12107776 files, 1561521/48416256 blocks
    

    What should I try now?

    Edit: Nvm, Ill just use the cli installer

  • So I downloaded the end of may iso from the root folder from where you can download the standard ISO. Used the cli installer and all went perfectly again.

    One question: Isn’t that tested before posting an ISO (or issuing an update)?

  • I’ve uploaded new isos with date from 2013.05.30 solving this full paths issues on both cli and cnchi installer.

    This errors should be fixed with autoupdates from the installers, but Cnchi doesn’t have it implemented yet in the released version. We have to test it a little bit longer.
