I’m at a bit of a loss. I bought my laptop a year ot two ago. It came with Windows10 with a 1TB hard drive. I removed the hard drive and replaced it with a 250GB SSD. I don’t remember what I did when the old HD was installed, but apparently resized the windows partition and repartitioned it to dual boot it. Again, I don’t remember.
I have reinstalled the 1TB hard drive because I need more storage than the 250GB SSD. Over the weekend I tried several things. Unfortunately I didn’t take any notes and I’m depending on my memory.
I’ve attached a screenshot of Gparted with my current system setup.
I originally tried installing Antergos on dev/sda5 from an older usb flash drive and it just wouldn’t work. So I tried and succeeded installing Anarchy Linux on dev/sda5 and on boot got the appropriate grub selection screen.
I realized that I had been using an older antergos iso, so I downloaded the current version and then tried installing it on dev/sda7. The installation went fine, but I got some error when I rebooted and it wouldn’t boot.
Next I successfully installed Ubuntu on dev/sda7 and it booted into a grub menu and I had access to both Linux installs but not the Windows. And that’s where I am now.
I don’t like the Ubuntu grub screen, so I wanted to change to the Anarchy grub. Based on instructions I successfully used before which I got from the Antergos forums, I tried installing grub when I was logged into the Anarchy installation. I got the following:
<code>[sudo] senha para randall:
Instalando para a plataforma i386-pc.
grub-install: aviso: this GPT partition label contains no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won’t be possible.
grub-install: aviso: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged…
grub-install: erro: will not proceed with blocklists.</code>
Also of note, when I look at the BIOS, it appears there is only a legacy boot option. I didn’t see an option for UEFI.
I’d really like two things. First and more important, is I want to get Antergos installed and working on this computer. It’s the only distro I REALLY like. Second, I’d like to be able to use the Windows10.
Any ideas what I should do?
