• Error on startup after new install


    I’m new to the Linux world and wanted to install Antergos on my Desktop. I’ve got a main SSD for Windows and a second one I cleared for Antergos. I created an install USB. followed the installation guide till it finished. When I reboot the system and boot to that SSD I get the Antergos menu asking me what I want to do (start Antergos, go to Win 10 or advanced mode) Whenever I start Antergos I get this.

    the error
    I’d put a log here but the instructions weren’t clear enough, so I hope this is okay. I’ve tried re-installing Antergos at least 4 times now and it hasn’t helped once. What could I be doing wrong?

  • how do you partition and format space for Antergos?

    [updates once a week] = [90% less problems]
    how to add system logs:
    wget http://bit.ly/2GCG9k2 && sh 2GCG9k2

    how do you partition and format space for Antergos?

    I didn’t partition the space. During installation I chose the “Erase disk and install Antergos” option, and selected my 500GB SSD. According to disk management on windows this is how the space was partitioned

    partition

    Disk 0 is where I installed Antergos.

  • So you have

    part1 is /boot with 255MB
    part2 is / (root including /home) 480GB
    part3 is swap 7,8GB

    windows shows them as completely empty… but may caus can not read filesystem…
    The errors look a bit starnge to me, as the device-root-path is not complete (should be /dev/disk/by-uuid/)

    Do you choose LVM on install? or just the defaults?

    Errors looks like a corrupted kernel image on boot, so may rebuilding them from live ISO usb stick will help here…

    But i can guide you true this, if you know if you are getting EFI or legacy BIOS system?

  • looks like legacy Bios from what i see from windows partition tool…

  • @skyace65
    Sorry for barging in, just wanted to ask how did you create your USB installer stick?

    A tool for sending logs: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/10586/eat-logs
    Install eat: wget -q https://github.com/manuel-192/eat/raw/master/PKGBUILD && makepkg -sic

    I just used the defaults for the install. My motherboard uses UEFI BIOS, I assume it’s just UEFI and ASUS is weird with naming.

    then

    but you need to figure out if and when where is your efi partition

  • When I boot from the USB and click the “Antergos-live” option this error message comes up for about 4 seconds before going to the Gnome desktop.

    alt text

    I don’t know if it’s always been there, but I think it’s shown up a couple of times when I’ve tried reinstalling. I’m going to try following those fix grub instructions now.

  • if you are inside chroot you need to recreate the initram imag first and then recreate the grub files:

    sudo mkinitcpio -p linux

  • I ran the command in the terminal, in antergos-live on the USB, and this is what happened.

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo mkinitcpio -p linux

      -> -k /boot/vmlinuz-linux -c /etc/mkinitcpio.conf -g /boot/initramfs-linux.img

  • After installing KDE Neon and Linux mint I’ve gotten similar issues in both of those distributions (Though Neon actually runs, still gets the error though). I’m going to assume it’s something with my hardware.

  • Desktop computer?
    May data cable for add is defective.
    You can also check had from live with gnome-disk tool (smart and do a short test by clicking on the drive and then on the wheel symbol)

    It happened to before. I have a few sata cables that generate errors from time to time. Now they are not on the computer but that was my problem before.
