Hi everyone. I was hoping I could get some help with my install.
I bought a new Asus Chromebox M004U. I updated the HD to 64GB, the memory to 6 GB. I ran through the craziness to get it to boot from a usb, and that seems to be working. However I can’t get the 64bit version of Antergos installer to actually boot after the welcome screen.
I’m currently installing the 32bit version, and the install is going pretty well (got into the “Live CD” environment and the graphical installer is working. I also tried a ubuntu 14.04 64bit and that got into the live desktop as well.
The current 64bit Antergos goes to boot but then restarts the system. I noticed this thread: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Acer_C720_Chromebook]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ac] … Chromebook which I found after seeing this: [http://www.brazzi64.net/blog/running-minimal-arch-linux-with-xbmc-on-the-asus-chromebox/]">[http://www.brazzi64.net/blog/running-mi] … chromebox/. It appears that to install a 64bit arch based version on the chromebox you have to use an older iso image.
The one the website gives is a 2013.10.1 version. Honestly I’m not sure how much I want to try a full arch install, it looks like it would take pretty much all day.
So a couple of questions:
1. Is there an (older?) version of the Antergos installer based on the 2013.10.1 version of Arch? Would this even solve my problem?
2. Will I have trouble running a 32bit version on my 64bit asus chromebox?
3. Any suggestions on a work around? I’ve tried booting with mem=1024M/1536M/2048M and that doesn’t change anything.
Thanks in advance and am enjoying Antergos on my laptop already.
