So I was following jays arch Linux installation tutorial on youtube, and after I installed the GRUB package, when I try to install GRUB, it gives me an error, here is a screenshot of that error! Thanks to whoever helps me in advance :D :)


  • I suggest that you copy the text and paste it here, instead of a bad image of the text.

  • Lets see details, use ppa version with your live installer (2nd option) or any working install, not Boot-Repair ISO: Please copy & paste the pastebin link to the Boot-info summary report ( do not post report), do not run the auto fix till reviewed. help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair

I solved it. The problem was that my PC was old and did not support efi. I had to do it in legacy mode like this -

pacman -S grub
grub-install /dev/sda --force
