• System reboot on Live USB startup

    I’ve been trying to install antergos for 2 days now and every time I start the live USB I get to the antergos logo screen and then my notebook reboots. I have windows 10 installed and everythong works fine, so I guess there is not an overheating problem. I tried other linux distributions (deepin, ubuntu and centOS) and the same thing happens. I also can’t find a startup log to pinpoint the error. I installed both antergos and deepin on this same notebook last year and had no problems before.

    With that description, I guess the problem may be how you created the USB installer.

    Plain dd is a good way to create it. But on Windows, Rufus (preferably in DD mode) and Etcher are alternatives that seem to work for many.

    Unetbootin afaik does not work.

  • I’ve tried rufus on both ISO and DD mode. I also burned the iso image on a DVD and the same thing happens.

  • yaourt -S imagewriter

  • @victor-lima-314
    Could you show info about your system with commands

    lsblk -fm

    One thing that should be checked: is Windows using UEFI boot or traditional BIOS/MBR boot, and which boot mode did you select for Antergos?
    Actually that should be visible from the commands above…

  • The problem with those commands is I cannot make any linux distro work. All distros that I’ve tried reset when starting so I can’t open a terminal.
    Windows is usign UEFI boot with secure boot turned off. The live USB was made with GPT partitioning for UEFI. The boot actually works, I select “try antergos without installing” option, the system startup begins and about 3 to 4 seconds after that the shutdown happens. The last times I tried I get to “dell smbios unable to run on non-dell system live” step and it’s over. Is there any way to record the system startup process?

  • @victor-lima-314 said in System reboot on Live USB startup:

    dell smbios unable to run on non-dell system live


    On Windows Rufus works well.

    On Linux use dd (copy and convert command):

    sudo dd oflag=sync bs=1M status=progress if=the.iso of=/dev/sdx
    sudo sync

    You should check if “secure boot” is disabled and TPM as well. And review all BIOS settings. If you boot from USB, it won’t touch the hard disk, so it does not matter if it is Windows or Linux already there.
    Also there is a kernel parameter to prevent reboot on panic: panic=0
    Try that.

  • @casquinhasJR Created a new media with dd on a different PC and same thing happend, even with the panic=0 parameter it rebooted. Also tested the USB drive on the other computer and it worked fine.

  • @victor-lima-314 can you give some system specs? also possible from windows about CPU Graphics and chipset - also the exact model of the norebook will be helpfull.

    –> Intel HD Graphics 520 + SKYLAKE

    May GPU needs an more uptdate firmware loaded, this seems to be not enabled by default .

    You can try adding this to kernel parameter (at boot menu)

    i915.enable_guc_loading=1 i915.enable_guc_submission=1

  • Sorry for the delay. Didn’t work either. I’m running out of possible explanations. Since the restart happens suddenly i have the impression it happens on the same moment of start up, but can’t say for sure. It actually passes through the dell_smbios message, so I guess that’s not the problem. Actually the behavior is very much like when I hold the power button to force shutdown, the screen just goes blank and it starts over.

  • Just tried the Arch installation drive and the exact same thing happens. I’m starting to think it may be a HW problem, but it doesn’t makes sense to affect only linux and not windows

  • @manuel
    For now in Windows (and maybe for a lot of OS):
    Rufus Top 1 (work for 90% of UEFI bootables with default settings)
    Win32 Disk Imager Top 2
    This one make an exact 1=1 CD/DVD image of an USB from an ISO archive
    After that I noticed that linux tools like Gnome Disks and Gparted failed to remove the ISO format from the created USB. The one that succeed to remove it is Minitool Partition Image.

    Etcher failed last time to create a UEFI bootable from Solus linux iso image, despite cleaming he made a pure ISO image.

    Two weeks ago DD instructions on Antergos Wiki page to make an bootable Antergos USB failed for me and Rufus succeded.

  • @ben_h
    I always use dd and it always works. And I have done that many years and countless times.
    Actually, if I happen to use Windows, I use dd from Cygwin for these things.

  • I even made a USB drive with DD on terminal (using another computer) and teh same happened

  • @manuel said in System reboot on Live USB startup:

    I always use dd and it always works. And I have done that many years and countless times.
    Actually, if I happen to use Windows, I use dd from Cygwin for these things.

    So dd… do you know what does “dd” stands for?
