• LiveUSB immediately goes to antergOS logo instead of boot options


    DELL Inspiron 5559 laptop
    Processor: IntelCore i7-6500U CPU 2 Cores, 4 Logical Processors
    Integrated Graphics Processor: Intel HD Graphics 520
    Discrete Graphics Processor: AMD Radeon R5 M335
    Drive: Crucial CT750MX3 SSD size: 750GB
    Memory: 16GB 1600MHz DDR3
    

    when I boot my UEFI laptop (Radeon graphics) with “antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso” liveUSB it immediately goes to the antergOS logo instead of the list of boot options you normally see.

    It’s very similar to the issue raised recently here…
    https://forum.antergos.com/topic/8233/stuck-at-antergos-logo-while-booting-from-liveusb-boot

    but I can’t seem to get past the antergOS logo, I tried hitting the “e” key in rapid succession during boot and the list of options did appear so I tried entering “modprobe.blacklist=nouveau” (as suggesed in the post above) in the long line of parameters on lower half of screen but this didn’t make any difference.

    I previously installed antergos 17.3 earlier this year in an identical laptop without any issues, and it is kept up to date and running very well since then. I’m using this laptop in antergos as I type

    I’m not an expert with linux but over the past couple of years I have managed to multiboot several linux distros alongside Windows 10 without any problems.

    I’m a bit puzzled on this one to be honest. Has anyone got any idea what might be causing this problem? Any advice would be appreciated.

    here is some details of my hardware using $ lspci -k

  • Nouveau module, if loaded and used, may hurt nVidia cards only. It is harmless for AMD cards. Preventing nouveau from being loaded with modprobe.blacklist=nouveau is useless in this case.

    You might try to use an extended, generic biacklist:

    modprobe.blacklist=nouveau,radeonhd,radeon,vmwgfx
    

    If it doesn;t help, you might also try:

    modprobe.blacklist=nouveau,radeonhd,radeon,vmwgfx vga=normal i915.modeset=0
    

    Just guessing, I don’t use AMD for quite a while.

  • Thanks for quick feedback, I appreciate your help. When it comes to graphics, I don’t know that much about it tbh.

    I tried both extended generic blacklists suggested above but I’m afraid it didn’t make any difference. The live USB does boot ok in an old BIOS laptop so it seems to be just a problem with a more modern UEFI laptop.

    I also tried burning the ISO using Etcher app in Antergos and and again using the dd method described in the link in my original post, but it didn’t make any difference.

    $ sudo dd bs=4M if=/media/hugh/NTFS/LINUX-ISO/antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdb
    

    If the structure of the antergos liveUSB has not changed, then perhaps something has changed on my DELL laptop but can’t think of anything obvious, except there may have been a DELL update to the BIOS.

    I even checked with a Manjaro liveUSB and it boots OK to the live screen so not sure what the problem is with the antergos liveUSB. Especially since it did boot ok earlier this year when I installed it on the other laptop.

    I’m a bit stuck to be honest.

  • @hughparker1 Maybe try using a different usb key writer. When I tried using UNetBootIn it would only go to the Antergos logo but when I used the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator it worked. I think that the best one is Suse Studio Image Writer or sometging like that. Use the Pamac app (assuming you’re using an Arch-based OS like Manjaro) and install the package called image-writer. That’s what works for me. Hope this helped! ;)

  • @CadenMitchell Thanks for your help. I logged into a manjaro os on another laptop and installed package called imagewriter 1.10.1420800585.134a9b3-8 from the AUR repo (it’s called SUSE Studio Imagewriter) and burned a new USB. Is this the correct imagewriter you mentioned above?

    This time when I boot, it didn’t go straight to the antergos logo, but does show the usual boot options screen first (so it is different from my previous liveUSB), the only problem is when I select the top default option it just displays the antergos logo and doesn’t ever get to the try me screen.

    I even tried the extended generic blacklists suggested by @just above, but no joy.

    It’s very frustrating as I am keen to get antergos installed but I don’t see any way to do this.

    PS. I then decided to see if I could boot the same antergos liveUSB on my daughters DELL Inspiron 3543 laptop which doesn’t have any discrete graphics (I think the Intel HD Graphics is built into the processor?), but it’s just same result as my DELL Inspiron 5559 laptop which does have discrete AMD Radeon R5 M335.

    specs for this laptop are…

    DELL Inspiron 3543
    Processor:  Intel Core i5-5200U, 2.20GHz, 2 Cores, 4 Logical Processors	
    BIOS Mode:  UEFI
    Video: 	    Intel HD Graphics 5500
    Memory:     8GB 
    Hard Drive: 1TB 5400 rpm SATA 
    Dell Wireless-N + Bluetooth 4.0
    

    so both laptops are not booting properly, do you think this might be related to the antergos image? or do you think it’s the USB writing. I’ve tried burning the ISO using

    Etcher app in Antergos
    Using the dd method in terminal
    USB Image Writer in Linux Mint
    SUSE imagewriter in Antergos

    Any idea what might be wrong? strange thing is manjaro liveUSB boots ok in both laptops.

    EDIT1: when selecting from the boot options I just chose the top default option which is Antergos x86_64 but wondered if there is any possibility of choosing one of the other options ? I’m not an expert but can use terminal if I know the correct commands.

    EDIT2: I even tried burning the minimal ISO but still no different

  • @hughparker1 That’s strange. I’ve never had this problem before. Maybe Antergos just needs regular BIOS instead of UEFI. You did use the proper USB Image Writer that I was talking about.

    Check out my art website @https://sites.google.com/site/sidedvirusartandanimation/home ;)

  • @hughparker1 Sorry for a stupid question. Did you check downloaded ISO’s md5sum against md5sum, listed on the Antergos site (scroll down to Latest Install Media)?

    File Details
    Name: antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso
    Size: 1.7G
    MD5 Sum: dcb06f17de46c664799624b5558e6d87
    Signature: antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso.sig
    

    Antergos Live ISO doesn’t have problems to run and be installed on UEFI computers.

  • @just thanks again for feedback.

    I did check the md5sum for the ISO before burning, always good to make sure it’s ok to use…

    created file…

    dcb06f17de46c664799624b5558e6d87  antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso
    

    then ran command…

    hugh[email protected] /media/hugh/NTFS/LINUX-ISO $ md5sum -c antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso.md5sum
    antergos-17.10-x86_64.iso: OK
    [email protected] /media/hugh/NTFS/LINUX-ISO $
    

    the strange thing is I have installed antergos on the exact same spec DELL Inspiron 5559 laptop at the beginning of this year and it installed perfectly and running well since. so I realise installing on UEFI is not a problem.

    It’s weird

  • @hughparker1 I don’t have WindOS for ages, UEFI and Secure Boot are permanently swtched off and disabled on all computers here, so I’m afraid to be out of ideas at this point.

  • @just thanks for taking the time to respond, it is much appreciated.

    I tried again but selected the second option in the boot screen, which is…

    Antergos x86_64 (Non-Graphical Fallback)

    then I noticed a couple of error messages so I rebooted to repeat the steps and got my phone out to take a couple of pictures in case they give you a clue to what might be wrong…

    I don’t have the technical knowledge to figure out what is going on here, could you have a look to see if it gives a clue to what the problem might be? Thanks again for the help

  • @hughparker1 Both shots are related to UEFI, which I don’t use.

    Have you already take a look at Dual Boot Antergos & Windows UEFI article in Antergos Wiki? UEFI+WindOS users may be interested in it. At least, it explicitely speaks about “vmlinuz: Not found” error from the first photo.

  • @just Thanks for your help, I will take a look after dinner and I’ll let you know how I get on.

  • @just said in LiveUSB immediately goes to antergOS logo instead of boot options:

    @hughparker1 Both shots are related to UEFI, which I don’t use.

    Have you already take a look at Dual Boot Antergos & Windows UEFI article in Antergos Wiki? UEFI+WindOS users may be interested in it. At least, it explicitely speaks about “vmlinuz: Not found” error from the first photo.

    Thanks @just, sorry for late reply, I read the article and it looked like the solution was to burn image on DVD rather than USB, so I did that but still got same problem. Tried on the two different laptops but no go. I don’t have any problem with other distros, but this latest ISO from antergos.

    In the end I had to install Manjaro to get the laptop working with Linux. Manjaro is ok but my user prefers the look and feel of antergos.

    So I’m disappointed about that, I will try again when the next release is available, perhaps i will have better luck.

    I know I could install antergos in March of this year but not right now, something has changed in the meantime, maybe it’s my laptop, not sure.

    Thanks anyway for all the support on this forum, I appreciate the help given as always.
