I'd like to gradually switch to Arch (from Ubuntu) so I decided to install it on a virtual machine (Virtualbox).
I followed the instructions in the "Unofficial Beginners Guide" and I thought I followed all the steps correctly.
The only thing that confused me a bit was the installation of the Virtualbox Kernel modules (to me from the guide it
is not clear if I have to install them in Ubuntu, the system from which I run the virtual machine, or in Arch the system
that is installed in the virtual machine).
Anyway I think I followed the procedure in the right way, and I didn't get any error message during the installation,
but apparently I made something wrong.
When I boot Arch, I get the GRUB menu. I select "Arch GNU/Linux with core repo kernel",
but I get this error message:
error no such device: (device id) Loading Linux core repo... error: no such partition Loading initial ramdisk error: you need to run the kernel first. Press any key to continue...
When I press any key I get back to the GRUB menu.
If I select "Arch GNU/Linux, with core repo kernel (Fallback initramfs)"
I get the same error message.
Can you help me understanding where things might have gone wrong?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help,
and hopefully I'll join you soon in this Arch adventure
