So I have the following problem.
I want to install BlackArch on an USB.
I downloaded the Live ISO (64Bit) and used PowerISO to make a bootable USB. I am on Windows 8.1 so I hit Windows + C, went to Settings, holded Shift and hit restart.
Then I booted from the USB. After that this error showed up:
Failed to start loader.efi: Not found"
Also the file
vmlinuz.efi was not found.
After that I used the Fedora Media USB Creator. After booting from the USB the loader was found but then the next error showed up:
:: Mounting '/dev/disk/by-label/BLACKARCH_201601' to 'run/archiso/bootmnt' Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201212 ... ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/BLACKARCH_201601' device did not show up after 30 seconds... Falling back to interactive prompt You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
So I found out that I have to rename the USB to
BLACKARCH_201601 but there is a problem. The max length for renaming is 11 characters. So I googled and found out that I can change the label with an
autorun.inf file. But that didn't work. Secure and Fastboot are disabled. Its an ASUS Laptop with Windows 8.1 and UEFI.
Okay so now I checked out the Files on the USB Stick and there was a
.conf file which had a line Called
label=BLACKARCH_201601. I changed it to
ARCH_EFI and renamed the USB
ARCH_EFI. That worked! Now he could mount
/dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_EFI. But now there is a new error:
Failed to mount /dev/loop0
