[SOLVED]Install freezes at 95%
« on: 2020/05/02, 22:47:47 »
Following up on a wifi issue with the Xfce4 iso I decided to install it and upgrade the kernel to attempt to fix it.https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=7966.0Well I never got that far. Install seems to go smoothly until 95%, installing boot loader, and then it locks up solid requiring a power button reset. I tried to install the boot loader manually in the live usb but with the same results. Full on Lock up. It looks like all the files are there. I did have some trouble with the installer, it wouldn't let set the esp flag to sda1. I used gparted to create the partitions and mark the flags and everything went ok until the boot loader lock up.
Am I doing something wrong here? I did have a similar issue when I originally installed MX-18 on this laptop(Acer Aspire ES 15) but was able to install the boot loader manually and carry on.
Any insight would greatly be welcomed.

Try the cli-installer

apt install cli-installer

As root (su)  run      cli-installer

We'll, I had to try again a few times. Both graphical and cli-installer and still won't boot. "No Bootable Disc". The last attempt with the cli-installer at least completed but no boot. I'm out of ideas here. Any suggestions? I came across dibl's bit of code to reinstall the boot loader, it completes but no boot.


Would be nice to get this sorted and not go back to where I was.

hi,

looking at the sheer amount of partitions, i would recommend a trial install with a "simpler" setup, and see whether that works or not. how about only two partitions?

1. / (boot, root, home, etc...)
2. data

best

Yes. That was going to be my next step. Remove everything. Back /data up of drive and start fresh with /esp /root and /home.

HendrikL, no I didn't. You need to chroot into the /root for that yes?

I do not have a modern uefi system, but I assume yes.

And there is no need for a separate /dev/home partition only for an extra /dev/data-grave for your personal stuff, my two cents. An extra home is only wasting hdd/ssd space ;) and useless.

If you ever install new, in 99% of cases you can't use the old settings and all important things like ~/.gnupg, .~/ssh and so on can be placed in the /data-grave and linked back to ~/.

OK, I'm 99% there. If I try and do a normal boot I get "NO BOOTABLE DISC". If I boot from the usb and select "detect efi boot loader" and select the correct one I can boot to the installed system. It seem to work normally. No boot error showed up that I saw.
Also, I installed the suggested kernel to get wifi working and now have a good, strong and stable wifi connection.
Code: [Select]
uname -r
5.6.8-towo.2-siduction-amd64

Does anyone have a suggestion to move on from here to get this laptop to boot normally? Through all my attempts this is the closest I've been. Like I mentioned, whether the graphical or cli-installer I get a full system lock up at the boot loader installation. Even trying to install manually I got a lock up. There was a couple times it did complete but there was nothing there so it actually didn't complete.
side note: I was planning on wiping the whole drive to simplify the partition scheme but tried the install one more time and got here. So I still have the posted partitions.

I don't own a laptop, or a uefi motherboard

I would try and install again without a home partition, if that don't work , I would wipe.


My thing with home is it does more harm than good

I don’t use a separate /home,  I have a partition  >  /my shit  < that has all my stuff like > /my shit/movies  < and > /my shit/music < etc....

 /home has settings that can be os dependent/package version dependent. I have seen some messed up things with /home, especially mixing one from a different distro or using one spread out across the system using many distro's.

Just not worth it to me. The problem using /home from a "stable" version to a "rolling release" version is asking for trouble imho (.kde, apps, config, etc.) different version number of apps(stable, ubuntu would be much older), dependencies (stable, ubuntu would not be up to date, etc) installing a /home  is like driving a ford pinto.


I and others here have seen many problems with home

my 2¢

Thanks for the input Piper. I agree with you. I still plan on wiping everything and start fresh like you mentioned. I just needed to see it I could get this to boot first.


By the way, i owned a pinto a little over thirty years ago.
