• Antergos won't show up in BIOS after fresh install on HDD


    So I have bought and HDD that works fine with antergos live. I installed antergos with the lastest cnchi installer and it went well after some tries. But it’s not showing in both of my computer’s bios, Windows doesn’t even show the drive until I remove the partitions and make a new one. I use systemd as bootloader because one of my PC doesn’t work with grub. Any idea ?

  • First we will need some more detailed informations:

    partition scheme as minimum… lsblk -f and install logs:

    To create an archive of all install logs:

    tar -czf ~/cnchi-logs.tar.gz /var/log/cnchi/
    

    Will create a cnchi-logs.tar.gz under the home of current user.

    But as you will need to do this out of a live session… you need to change /var/log/cnchi to the path to the mounted root of the installed Antergos… (you can find this over filebrowser)

    you can provide over: https://filebin.ca/

    To see your partitions you can use gparted or this two commands: lsblk -f sudo fdisk -l

  • Hi again 😉

    You’re using systemd-boot ? Check this out:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd-boot

    Your system is UEFI, am I right?

    Is your HD internal (SATA) or external (usb connected)?

  • @karasu It’s USB connected 🙂 and yes I use systemd because I have a PC that doesn’t support grub. My UsB key with systemd works perfectly on both of my PC. And for the logs, do I have to start a new install?

  • If you wiped your disk, yes, you’ll have to install again.

    If not, the logs are stored in /var/log/cnchi in the installed system.

  • I’ll do an install real quick

  • @theatomickitty said in Antergos won't show up in BIOS after fresh install on HDD:

    And for the logs, do I have to start a new install?

    no all logs will be saved at /var/log/cnchi/ after installation finished and they stay there after reboots…

  • I have some trouble installing, be back

  • Installing…

  • “Impossible to install necessary packages. Cnchi cannot continue” I give up for today I’ll try a light install tommorow.

  • Installing a no add-ons packages. It will not work because that’s what I did last time but at least I can logs. What commands do I run to make the logs you need in the live usb?

  • wget https://bit.ly/2r3AuOQ && sh 2r3AuOQ
    

    will pastebin them and give url you can post

  • Alright, hope you can fix it! Those installs are taking hours xD

  • Will shutting it down, I checked and it still is not appearing in BIOS, nor windows, but the partitions are still there.

  • its bed time here in Berlin also… so i can recheck logs tomorrow, and devs can have a look also, but they are already busy un getting everything sorted upstream, as i can see!

  • Hi,

    Your log seems fine:

    2018-04-28 20:21:53 [INFO] advanced.py(2222) set_bootloader(): Antergos will install the bootloader systemd-boot in device /dev/sdc
    2018-04-28 20:21:53 [DEBUG] advanced.py(2176) get_changes(): Device /dev/sdc1 will be created, not relabeled, formatted, mounted as /boot and not encrypted.
    2018-04-28 20:21:53 [DEBUG] advanced.py(2176) get_changes(): Device /dev/sdc2 will be created, not relabeled, formatted, mounted as / and not encrypted.
    

    Can you tell us which system do you have in sda?

    Can you mount /dev/sdc1 (if sda is windows, mount it from the antergos live iso), and check the antergos.conf file? (The UUID is the most important part).

    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    cd /mnt/loader/entries
    cat antergos.conf
    

    Now, to know your uuids, run:

    sudo blkid
    

    Could you also check your efi boot order?

    efibootmgr
    

    Thanks!
