[SOLVED] Created partition with no filesystem

Hi everyone,

I was installing the distro according to the wiki and everything was going well until I had to create the partitions with fdisk, to be honest I didn't know much about what I was doing and ended up stuck in the grub mode.
I used "ls" to see all the files available but none of them has a filesystem. What should I do?

Redo the installation and complete these steps: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Instal … partitions

How would do that, if I may? Everytime I turn my notebook on, I get stuck in the grub rescue mode.

Re: [SOLVED] Created partition with no filesystem

Same way you installed in the first place: boot from the live media.

Re: [SOLVED] Created partition with no filesystem

Strange... You have managed to install GRUB bootloader, so You already formated the disk, created filesystems, mounted them under /mnt, run arch-chroot and succeeded to install the bootloader. I think it's fine, you just forget/missed out creating the GRUB configuration file by runing

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

ls command (without any argument) in GRUB "basic shell" will output all current disks and partitions, so there is no file shown. But if you run

ls /

there will be list of files where is grub installed.

If you succeeded to

pacstrap /mnt

during the installation, you can resume installation process, there is no need to start from the point zero. Just boot from instalation media, mount the filesystems  under /mnt and chroot in:

arch-chroot /mnt 

and do whatever  you do, create the grub.cfg, install some stuff etc.
