It must have been a typo if I referred to the refi partition it should have been /dev/sda1. Sorry if I confused you.
The antergos installation is always found. The problem is either:
- in the case of Antergos installed over elementary, grub does not load automatically antergos.
- in the case of a pure antergos, grub does not even start.
I have just tried to install a fresh anterior using systemd-boot with a boot partition only and it does work fine. I will use this from now on.
Thank you both for your kind help in trying to resolve this problem.
I have the list of files from the /boot folder of different installs.
Fresh install of ElementaryOS:
I overwrote the root partition with Antergos:
Fresh install of Antergos:
Hope that helps.
Finished to install. Rebooted and presented with the GRUB shell.
This is an improvement though!
Grub.cfg contains an antergos entry.
When I follow this post, I can boot fine. Here are the commands I used:
$ root=(hda0,2) $ linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/sda2 rw $ initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-linux.img $ boot
grub.cfgfile, I see that the
--hint-efiparameter points to the
/partition and not the
/boot/efi. I tried to edit the
grub.cfgbut it does not help the boot.
What should I do now?
I was referring to Suggestion 2. It must have been a typo for the disk size (the drive is 500Gb and I always use the rest of the drive for /).
You actually answered a question I was going to ask.
I just launch the “overwrite” install. Let’s see how it goes.
Thanks for the help.
I tried this but it did not show up.
What should I select exactly?
- Format the / partition
- Select the ESP partition for /boot/efi without formatting
- “Use the device below for boot loader installation” should be checked or not?
- Would you advise on GRUB2 or systemd-boot?
