I can add a small amount of packages to the new repos based on the suggestions of the users.
But unfortunately I cannot add any requested package, since there are certain restrictions:
- prefer packages that are small in size
- all repos should be kept relatively small
- bandwidth may/will be limited
So please, only suggest packages that you really, really would like to be added there. If I cannot fulfill your package request, please don’t take it personally. My hands are tied.
I have set up three small new repos for Antergos users at github.com.
In short, the new repos are:
Name & link Description antergos-maur A selection of prebuilt AUR packages. antergos-mup Provides the up-to-date versions of selected packages of the Antergos repo. antergos-m Packages I’ve created.
If you are interested in seeing what they offer, please check the links at the table above.
Usage instructions are at https://github.com/manuel-192/antergos-common-repo-info.
Feel free to use them. In case of any problems or comments, write them here at this thread.
DISCLAIMER: use them at your own risk.

Rufus may work too, but needs to be configured exactly right (DD mode).
But etcher is known to work without additional configurations.
To install, it depends on the successful boot. As your machine seems to be able to boot in either mode, you must select the BIOS mode in machine’s BIOS/firmware, then installer should boot in BIOS mode. Then you should not see anything related to /boot/efi. But if you see the /boot/efi in the Checklist, installer has booted in the wrong mode, try booting again with different settings.
If the installer boots OK in BIOS mode, then select suitable partitions for Antergos when asked, shouldn’t cause any trouble. You may want to have only one partition (root or /) for Antergos, since a swap file can be created later, after install. And let the installer overwrite the MBR of /dev/sda (Windows had written it earlier), otherwise Windows remains in control of booting.
BTW, if you wish to keep Windows, I strongly suggest you make a WIndows recovery disk (or whatever the term is in Windows). With that disk you are able to rewrite Windows MBR if needed.
And, before doing anything, make sure you have backups of your personal data on some external drive. Any error can occur during install or its preparations, and hence the whole disk may be wiped.
BTW, I know Windows is able to boot Antergos with some arrangements, but that is out of scope of this forum.
How did you burn the installed USB stick?
The preferred programs are:
- dd on Linux
- etcher on Windows
Your stick has gpt partition table. That probably explains why it tries to boot in UEFI mode.
And your motherboard probably supports both UEFI and BIOS Legacy boot.
So, burn the stick again with a program listed above, and reinstall Antergos.
You should install Antergos in BIOS Legacy mode because of your Windows 7 installation.
