[SOLVED] NVMe Installation Problem

Hello,

I haven't find anything mentioned about the problem I'm having, so I do apologies if there is already a post. Anyway I'm trying to make a new installation of Arch Linux on a NVMe disk however once the live environment is on and going to list the disk with "fdisk -l" I can't see it listed. The "lsblk -f" command gives the following output:

 
NAME          FSTYPE      FSVER                  LABEL               UUID 
sdc              iso9660     Joliet Extension    ARCH_202104  2021-04-01-17-14-04-00                              
├─sdc1        iso9660     Joliet Extension    ARCH_202104  2021-04-01-17-14-04-00                              
├─sdc2        vfat            FAT16                  ARCHISO_EFI    FCFD-B5F5                                           
└─sdc3                                                          
nvme0n1

When I do "# cfdisk nvme0n1" I get "cfdisk: cannot open nvme0n1: No such file or directory" probably 'cause is not under "/dev"?

I have tried a Windows installation and I can see the drive, ready to be installed.

Any help much appreciate.

Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] NVMe Installation Problem

What is your bios setting for the disk controller? It could be "RAID" for instance: if so, try "AHCI" if you can.

Hi paulkerry,

Actually it's set to "AHCI"

They are in dev. Have you tried cfdisk /dev/nvme0n1?

Re: [SOLVED] NVMe Installation Problem

OK. Hardware info like machine make/model, desktop/laptop, nvme make/model might be useful here.
Did you search for "nvme"? old post for example https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 0#p1864780
I'm not sure what the differences are, but there is a 2021.05.01 installation image.

edit: ignore my post unless @d_fajardo's post (thanks: missed that) doesn't help

Re: [SOLVED] NVMe Installation Problem

Hi d_fajardo,

Yes, it does work indeed. So the assumption I made was, if I can't see it with "fdisk -l" , so it's not under "/dev" (which is the location of special or device files) and I didn't use it in front of the command "cfdisk" as posted before as I do for every Arch Installation I have done, what's worst it's mentioned in the installation wiki too. So of course the right command to use was "cfdisk /dev/nvme0n1" and honestly I haven't thought to give a try.  Such a mistake! Pardon.

Cheers guys.

I'll mark the post as solved.
