• Antergos 18.4 - NO Extended option

    Hi There
    I was seeking for a stable Linux to replace it with Debian , But couldn’t find . I decided to use Antergos OS , I had a Windows 7 x64 and then a Debian 9.3 since 7 month ago
    I deleted my Windows partitions last week . Now I want to install Antergos ; But it gives error You have 3 primary and an extended partition , While I only have 1 primary partion and an Extended and a raw partition

    The problem is Cnchi doesn’t allow me to chose Logical partiotn ( Extended ) and only has one option : Primary . But marked it as " Use as : Ext4 " . When I create one , The latter will give me error : You have 3 primary and a extended partitions

    Even I deleted my partition again and made it Ext4 , But it has only one option !

  • If you want you can use gparted also prior starting installation … inside live.

  • and if you are creating a gpt table it is not possible to create extended volumes at all

  • How do you partition the disk? from where / what programm what parameters

  • Should I report it as a bug ?

  • Yes sure if it is so😊
    If you do then provide cnchi log on failed install you will find it under /tmp/cnchi.log you can paste in it with:

    cat /tmp/cnchi.log | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1
  • @walkingdead
    could you show some info before deleting partitions:

    lsblk -fm
    sudo fdisk -l

    after booting with the USB installer stick?

  • @joekamprad Hi , Forum didn’t show Your replies . I used Gnome Disks to remove my Windows partition and made it Ext4 . Is there a Gparted option in installation ?

  • @manuel Hi , I’m in Debian now , But if it’s necessary to it via Antergos , Just tell me ( cause it’s not comfortable in Live OS )

    lsblk -fm :

  • @WalkingDead no gparted inside installer, but it is installed into Live Iso so you can use it before installation to partition the disk, then choose manual partitioning inside installer where you only need to create the needed mountpoints that installer knows where to install.

  • And on a EFI system isnt it the fact that we do not use dos partition tables and it is strictly needed to use gpt???

    So may installer get confused here because he wants a gpt table but harddisk is in dos?

  • I just try to reproduce this here but i have no such errors, i can see a dos partition table and all primary and extended and logical partitions and also can use them as it should be.

    Installer wants me to format / (root) and i need to have a mount point to an fat32 efi partition /boot/efi …


  • @walkingdead Disk sda is quite mixed. You have same mount points in /dev/sda4 and /dev/sdb1. Maybe your /etc/fstab is slightly wrong, could you show it?

    If nothing else helps, then take backups of your data and reinstall everything - repartition the disk first to have all partitions you need.
    E.g. one partition for debian, one for antergos and one for swap. I’d suggest not making any /boot partitions, unless you have a very good reason for them. And if I understood you correctly, you will not install Windows anymore.
    Note that I’m assuming your machine is not using UEFI.

  • /dev/sdb holds: sda1 ntfs My Passport // Disklabel type: gpt // mountpoint /media/lov = data storage

    but /dev/sda4 (ntfs) is mounted on same mountpoint /media/lov

  • @joekamprad Sir , I used Gnome Disks on Antergos and it hurt my HDD . There is no DOS partition in my HDD . I used Disks app for merging Partition 1 ( Windows Boot ) and Partition 2 ( Former Windows OS partition ) and make them Ext4 part . But it’s a bug !
    Antergos installer ( Cnchi ) want to use a Primary partition for installation . It’s not right … All Linux OSs use Logical parts by Extended partitions . Cnchi shows me Make Partition " As Primary " and doesn’t allow me make more then one

  • @manuel Sir , My MB is UEFI compatible but I boot as Legacy ( to Antergos ) cause making HDD as UEFI compatible causes I lose my all data . And it’s so hard to lose Debian . I want 2 Linux side by side ( Yes I hate Windows ) One Stable and one Bleeding Edge . Maybe they fixed the bug … Cause Cnchi wants me to make its partitions as Primary ! It might not be true … All Unix OSs use Logical partitions . I should wait for some while to they update Antergos and Cnchi then maybe fixed . Thanks a lot

  • i do not think that cnchi forces to install to primary partition, and with dos i do not say dos partition i say dos table instead of gpt!

  • problem is maybe that cnchi do not detect that you boot in legacy and want to install in efi mode?
    You are sure that Live ISO is starting in legacy mode? looks like this:

  • i just try reproduce again and create a partiotion table in dos then a extended partotion and all needed partitions as logical inside the extended… installs without issue on Bios boot…
