Be excellent to each other
Preferably one since I only have that one large USB 3.0 stick. But if it is only possible to have it run on a MacBook if installed attached to a MacBook that should be doable, just not right now.
Regarding the picture: might take a moment.
Might take to tomorrow since I will be busy for the rest of the day and my laptop seems unwilling to boot right now.
I think I edited my last post while you were typing.
It is a 2MB partition of type bios-gpt-boot.
The rest remains empty.
Where exactly do I find that information?
BIOS Version is F.21 if that helps…
In the system configuration it shows a UEFI Boot order and Legacy Boot Order
Upon selection to create a partition table with GPT cnchi said :
“GRUB requires a BIOS Boot Partition in BIOS systems to enable its core.img file due to lack of post MBR embed gap in GPT disks.
Cnchi will create this BIOS Boot Partition for you.”
Except for the last sentence I have no clue what that means and overall I don’t know what that implies for the partitioning process.
I now have, through that automated partitioning, a 2MB bios-gpt-boot partition while the rest is still free.
Do I still need to make a UEFI and /boot partition?
Ah okay, I thought installing as I would with a regular drive meant autopilot. That’s another 2 hours of intalling down the drain.
So, from said previous installation I still have two partitions on the drive: AntergosBoot and -Root. Hence I want to create a new partition table, right?
Then, do I choose GPT or MBR?
Does the UEFI partition need a mount point? How large should it be? The hard drive has aroung 537MB, should it be equal is size?
Right now it says in the mount checklist that only the root direcctory is missing. Earlier it would tell that I also need a /boot and /boot/efi mounted partition. Are the root and EFI partition all I will need?
Sorry for the bombardement of questions, I’m beginnig to become desperate.
Step by step
I have downloaded echter and the current ISO
I flashed the stick
Bootet from the flashed stick
Unmounted all partitions of the larger target stick
Can I now proceed simply by installing antergos like I would on the laptops hard drive or do I need to fiddle with partitions?
