tty1 login freezes in Arch 2022 & Arch 2023.01.01 install not booting

So I am trying to install Arch Linux 2023 since the start of 2023 as I was interested in knowing how to install it on a real machine which in my case in HP Laptop db-15xx and it previously had Windows 10 and later upgraded to Windows 11 then after Mr.Robot series in lockdown of 2020 I installed Kali linux and after I broke it with audio and video issues which I couldn't fix after using it for a long time, I then installed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Open SUSE... After breaking these three I installed Garuda linux and got a taste of Arch based distro... Then Kubuntu... and after breaking it.
I then tried installing Manjaro but couldn't and then I installed Endeavor OS. But couldn't resist from exploring Arch installation which was 2023.01.01 version and after researching for a bit and used ArchBoot iso and used it's terminal to install the Arch using youtube tutorial as it was very hard for me to follow along Arch wiki guide as it posed many alternatives but ZI am yet to learn the arch way... The tutorial I used was this : https://youtube.com/watch?v=PQgyW10xD8s … IECMiOmarE
But after installing it successfully.. when I booted it up I was stuck in the login screen of tty... I had created a user with sudo privileges but the moment I turned it on.. The prompt blinked for 5 sec approx and then was stuck and sometimes it used to reboot,Thought it might be some issue with Secure boot and UEFI...
So I wanted to build my own arch version with Archiso which had support for Secure boot and UEFI... using the Grubx64.efi and BOOTx64.EFI of Ubuntu as they had the signed CA certificates from Microsoft as described in https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Unifie … tion_image
By the way I had turned off my secure boot and my laptop did not have Setup mode turn on or turn off in it's BIOS settings.
I then stumbled upon modifying existing iso of Arch linux...
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Unifie … ustom_keys
Then I needed to make the db.key and db.crt for the signing process and used Lubuntu and followed along with Manual Process of Creating keys section of the same page....
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Unifie … al_process
Used it and created the iso and there were no errors and warnings but it also didn't boot.
Then I thought it may be some problem with 2023.01.01 iso so I hopped on to other iso version of 2022...
https://archlinux.org/releng/releases/2022.11.01/
It was successful it booting live on my hardware but it too had the same issue of GETTING STUCK ON TTY1 LOGIN PROMPT.
I tried to update the packgae in which getty and tty1 came in and it showed that they were up to date.
I tried to installing it for the 5th time but still the same problem is persisting.
I have installed Arch successfully and is fully functionional when I mount the root directory with /mnt and arch-chroot it...
But it just gets stuck on tty1.....
I have also tried with the second available version of 2022...
https://archlinux.org/releng/releases/2022.12.01/
But same problem persists...
I am now trying to modify the iso of 2022.11.01 and try to implement Secure boot....
https://archlinux.org/releng/releases/2022.11.01/
I think the problem may be with UEFI Secure boot itself...
Because even though the OS was installed successfully it rechecks??? And may be if I implement Secure boot into Arch iso, I may be able to do it...
If anyone has any idea about what can be done then pls help...
I am way past "Do it Yourself" stage....
I tried everything in my hands...
And I think it is bug of some sort but Arch linux 2023.01.01 Install doesn't boot itself on my laptop....
Kindly help...

Re: tty1 login freezes in Arch 2022 & Arch 2023.01.01 install not booting

So I added the db.key and db.crt to the iso but after reinstalling it successfully, I again was stuck in the tty1 again...

And as the iso was old, I heard there was an update in keyrings so I updated the Arch keyrings using pacman:

pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring

Then when I ran pacstrap on the /mnt which had the root directory mounted to it...

pacstrap /mnt base linux linux-firmware

But I saw some warnings in the output of the above command like some warnings...

But still the tty does freeze on login prompt....
If anyone has any solutions...
Pls help...

The stock ISO image should start fine if you disable SecureBoot.

But sir/madam, I have disabled the secure boot and when I try to boot the latest Arch iso which is 2023.01.01, it stops after a while even though the bios of Arch live had appeared but the previous 2022 versions worked just fine...
The booting itself is not taking place...
I am unable to comprehend the reason behind this behaviour even though everyone is saying it works fine...

I tried again... just now and it is not booting... the 2023.01.01 iso
Here is the output I got after it got stuck...

And I have disabled the Secure boot in BIOS settings:

But still it is the same...

I would prefer a gender-neutral title, if you don't mind.

So use that version then. You could even try archinstall, that is supported here.

Re: tty1 login freezes in Arch 2022 & Arch 2023.01.01 install not booting

And ya the Archinstall script didn't work....
Only errors and nothing else...
This is the 15th time this is happenin...

It doesn't work everytime...
Can't even install Arch... I am skeptical on how I will run it....
I guess this is happening this year...
The 2023 iso won't boot and 2022 iso's can't install the arch properly....
My brain has run out of options...
Hmmmm ?
