@tpowa: Why did you remove MiB unit in parted commands in the setup script? http://stopabusingsiprefixes.org/stopabusing.html

Because it simply doesn't work and fails. Try it yourself and you will see the error message.

Is this will be problem with x86_64 installation?

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

No this just means that ISO size was reduced by 60MB, due to using for each architecture one initrd which contains both lts and linux kernel modules.

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

I'm curious but how can I use Archboot and boot in UEFI Mode? When inserting an USB Stick with Archboot on it, it will always boot into BIOS Mode, while a Kubuntu based USB Stick has two options available in the boot menu.
So is there anything I need to do in order to kinda force the UEFI mode?

I tried to install arch on a uefi bios machinge but nothing seems to work and I don't get any entry in the bootmanager menu as well. Also if I manually insert the entry using efibootmgr it won't be there after the reboot.... :-(

Thanks!

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

I used unetbootin to create a bootable USB from the Archboot iso and it was recognized as a UEFI USB boot device. The install booted in UEFI mode but even though it detected that I was using grub2-efi-x86_64 it still didn't detect my GPT partitions and I got the "efivars kernel module not loaded properly. Manually load it and create a boot entry for GRUB2 in EFI Boot Manager." error message and the install failed.

Hoping I just got the partitioning wrong (see below for what was mostly left over from a Ubuntu UEFI install that I used for the Archboot install) but I'll try a few more partition arrangements to see what happens.

Disk /dev/sdd: 488395055 sectors, 232.9 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): FD58348D-F702-4900-8FEB-620EBFFB181D
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 488395021
Partitions will be aligned on 2048-sector boundaries
Total free space is 2014 sectors (1007.0 KiB)

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1            2048            4095   1024.0 KiB  EF02  BIOS_BOOT_GRUB2
   2            4096          395263   191.0 MiB   EF00  UEFI_SYSTEM

Thanks for the info!

If the grub_bios partition really needed for an uefi install? I'm not sure about that....

I had the same question. Some of what I read says no but Archboot auto prepare created it. See below for the partitions I ended up with.

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

According to the wiki entry the bios_grub partition is not needed...

But I found a BUG when running in EFI Mode: It's impossible to load the efivars module during installation. Just gives me a module not found message.

Where you able to load the module at all during installation? Without it I don't get a valid UEFI Menu entry (which doesn't seem to work anyway over here and I don't know why)...

Yes, archboot by default creates both UEFISYS and bios_grub partitions since it is too much of complexity to test whether booted in bios or ueefi mode and setup only the approriate partition. This partition setup also helps if you boot using both grub2-bios and grub2-uefi in the same system.

But one thing I noticed in your system if the UEFISYS partition should be FAT32, not FAT16. Although linux does not care about which FAT fs it contains, Windows UEFI-GPT requires UEFISYS to be FAT32. FAT16 might cause problems in UEFI-GPT dualboot setup.

Is this problem occurring in latest Archboot iso or in some earlier version? The latest one had few changes in the way initramfs is created (one initramfs per arch, not one per kernel). Can you boot into the latest archboot and check whether

/lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/firmware/efivars.ko.gz

file exists?

Also can you post the output of

# dmesg | grep -i EFI

from within archboot?

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

I only ever run Windows in Virtualbox so the 16/32 bit FAT is not a concern. Besides, Archboot created all of the partitions during the auto prepare of the hard drive. It wasn't really my choice.

The only file in /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/firmware/ is dcdbas.ko gz. There is no efivars.ko.gz and I do get the "...not loaded properly..." error message for it during the install.

Here is "dmesg | grep -i EFI" from within the UEFI USB Archboot...

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

@KairiTech: There seems to be a problem with "if statement" and "modprobe". Can you try changing

if [[ $(modprobe -q efivars) ]]; then

to

modprobe -q efivars

if [[ "$(lsmod | grep efivars)" ]]; then

in archboot installer script. You can do this by booting into archboot and editing /arch/setup file using nano or some other text editor.

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

@tpowa and KairiTech: https://gist.github.com/1080899 patch might solve the problem. I replaced modprobe with lsmod in the if statement and it seems to work. I also changed few other things like using "mountpoint" in finding UEFISYS partition etc.

Is this problem occurring in latest Archboot iso or in some earlier version? The latest one had few changes in the way initramfs is created (one initramfs per arch, not one per kernel). Can you boot into the latest archboot and check whether

/lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/firmware/efivars.ko.gz

file exists?

Also can you post the output of

# dmesg | grep -i EFI

from within archboot?

It is the latest Archboot (2011.10-1) and /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/firmware/efivars.ko.gz doesn't exist.

dmesg | grep -i EFI shows the following:

Re: 2011.10-1 archboot "2k11-R6" ISO hybrid image released

@tpowa: Any idea about missing /lib/modules/3.0-ARCH/kernel/drivers/firmware/efivars.ko.gz ? Something gone wrong in initramfs merge?

@KairiTech: There seems to be a problem with "if statement" and "modprobe". Can you try changing

if [[ $(modprobe -q efivars) ]]; then

to

modprobe -q efivars

if [[ "$(lsmod | grep efivars)" ]]; then

in archboot installer script. You can do this by booting into archboot and editing /arch/setup file using nano or some other text editor.

Progress! I made the changes to /arch/setup as you suggested and there are no more complaints about not loading efivars properly. There was however a complaint about not finding the 200MB EFI System partition and I got sent to cgdisk twice to set it up even though it was already created. I eventually got the "successful" GRUB install message but still can't boot from that drive.

Should the mountpoints for the handmade partitions listed below have worked? If not, what should I change and how do I apply the patch to /arch/setup?

Disk /dev/sdd: 488395055 sectors, 232.9 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): 6E1017A4-F27E-4AA2-9504-00B00BF039D5
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 488395021
Partitions will be aligned on 2048-sector boundaries
Total free space is 2014 sectors (1007.0 KiB)

Backward compatibility is for the masses. There's no dual-boot here...

You are missing 1 mountpoint. Should be

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name                 mountpoints
    2            4096          413695   200.0 MiB   EF00  EFI System             /boot/efi
   3          413696          567295   75.0 MiB    8300  Linux filesystem     /boot

Try install again with /dev/sda2 mounted at /boot/efi (after mounting /dev/sda3 at /boot).

Mounted /dev/sdd2 at /boot/efi. I did get the automatic label for EFI and no errors except /dev/sdd2 "already mounted." Still no boot from that drive.

BTW what fs should I have chosen for /boot/efi? I used ext2 the first time and ext4 on a second attempt to install because without a fs the mounts would fail.

Definitly Fat32.... you can refer to the Wiki entry for Grub2 and EFI.... it's all explained there...

Added it to grub2 hook now, don't know why it's not included anymore.
Do we still need the change in setup script?

Yes. Without those changes the setup script wont know that efivars is loaded and efibootmgr will not be executed.
