I have the latest blackarch ISO (2019). I have live-booted it on a 64-GB USB. The Live-Boot works perfectly. However, if I install it in my HDD, It boots in the GRUB Menu.
Here is the steps I followed:
Once I reached the query saying
install with windows/other OS?(y/n)?
I put in
y (though I tried with
Then opens the partition menu. The partitions are as follows:
/dev/sda1:HPFS (where in my Windows resides) /dev/sda2: (500M) Linux /dev/sda3: (16G) Linux Swap/Solaris /dev/sda4: (128G) Linux
Proceeding, I set the boot partition as /dev/sda2 and root as /dev/sda3 with both filesystems ext4 (I even tried with ext3 and ext2 for both and btrfs for root partition) When I write this partition table and install it, the installer ends without any error even the grub-install returns no error
However, when it tells me to reboot, on reboot, it goes to the GRUB menu.
surprisingly, after installation, no initrd file shows up in the
/ or the
/boot directory, though an
initramfs is there (which when used dumps the kernel)
What am I doing wrong during the Installation?
solutions here don't work :(
