The Live CD is the key to reformat and re-mount your partition. You can go directly to the installer, or you can also use gparted softare in the live environment.
Once you have a clean partition, you can try and install a distro again on it.
I would break it down as:
sda1 win32 /boot/efi
sda2 ext4 /
sda3 ext4 /home
sda4 swap swap
sda5 ntfs windows loader
sda6 ntfs other
This is the minimal safe way to partition. You would install the distro in the root partition, and leave the home for your settings, documents, and files.
HP HP Spectre x2
Detachable/8146, BIOS F.05 10/22/2015
That’s the type of hardware as mentioned in my initial question, and its bios version.
I am using HP Spectre X2 Detachable tablet
It just crashed and shutdown as soon as the wifi is detected 3 seconds after resuming back to desktop.
@mmartin20tw If you dont format the EFI partition, Windows should be able to boot. In some UEFI/bios, you can press keyboard F9 to select from a boot menu: Antergos and Windows Loader. Try going into Antergos, and see if you can get into the command line. The base system might be usable. If you can load the CLI, then you can try install the rest of the packages, by issuing a command:
Not sure if this is a driver’s problem or my Linux Kernel 5.6.7 or any version before it just can’t handle a webcam.
Type of webcams: 5MP HP TrueVision Full HD (front facing), 8 MP HP TrueVision Webcam (rear-facing) Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera (rear-facing).
I got a rear-facing webcam working on guvcview and skype identified as Intel Realsense R200, but non of the normal cameras work.
Has anyone installed a driver or workaround for this?
I am running Antergos on HP Spectre X2 tablet, with kernel 4.5.6, GNOME, and LightDM
Getting hibernation done is a nightmare, because you need to modify few things including grub, changing from GDM to LightDM, loading a swap partition, and kernel loader. That bit is finally done. It can now hibernate.
But suspend remains troublesome. I can suspend it using systemctl suspend, or select it from the menu, or by closing the lid.
Suspending looks fine, screen goes black, but when I turn it back on using the power button, it will show the exact screen situation. After 3 seconds, it just goes dead or shut down ungracefully as if something in the kernel do a hard switch-off to the table.
Is there away to fix this? It’s pointless to have suspend when it always shutdown afterwards.
