This' my first Arch Linux install. I followed every installation step correctly but after rebooting my box I can't load up the Arch. I end up at a grub prompt. After hours of consulting Google I have realised that I am missing the vmlinux Linux kernel file in my /boot directory. Some people online claim they found the file in the root / folder and simply moved it to /boot folder to solve this. However for me I am not able to trace the file in the / dir. How and where can I get the vmlinux file? I need it in order to boot my new Arch install. xo
The kernel image has to be in
/boot if you followed all the steps correctly. What you can do is:
- boot into the live cd.
- mount the root partition somewhere.
arch-chrootinto the root partition.
- install the
linuxpackage. It would be wise to install
Don't forget to mount the
efì partition before installing
