Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

All Asus UEFI guys: Please install the updated grub2 pkgs from https://www.dropbox.com/s/jep9t8edsgx3yt6 (bzr r3857) and create a upadted iso using archboot-update-iso.sh script from https://www.dropbox.com/s/rt2s32r3zj5mzn5, test it and report any success/failure. These grub2 package contain important uefi patches that (might) correct the uefi booting issues you have in your Asus laptops.

EDIT: Updated to bzr r3915.

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

I tried to make a fresh install on macbook air late 2010 and got black screen after grub. I used default installer and every thing went "ok". Also had arch before install, so I am not sure if entries in refit changed correctly. Something I can read or do? Is information about ASUS relevant for my case? THX

@rat

tried to build iso using your script but it errors out. Have not had a chance to go through the whole output. It is included below:

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

Not sure if the following are the issue:

./archboot-update-iso.sh: line 301: grub-mkstandalone: command not found 
cp: cannot stat `/tmp/grub2_uefi_mp.Fsz/efi/boot/bootx64.efi': No such file or directory 

Thanks,

You answered your own question. You don't have grub2-common and grub2-efi-x86_64 installed.

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

I arrived here because I have the same problem booting a migrated Arch install as Jeff:

The dropbox linked Grub2 seemed to make things worse.

I also have an Asus machine, is this a known issue with Grub2? Does it only effect UEFI booting?

Thanks, Jamie

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

@Jamie

You installed the grub2-efi and grub-common from dropbox and it did not work? I have not been able to get back to the issue lately but it sounds like you tried and it will not work.

Does it only effect UEFI booting?

You can use a mbr bootloader, I am using syslinux at the moment. I still have my ESP(EFI_SYSTEM_PARTITION).

Which brings me to another question...

@rat

For testing I should be able to boot either from Syslinux/mbr or from grub2/efi if I want to test out new packeges?? They will not interfere with each other will they

Thanks,

Jeff

Yes BIOS worked, thanks. And yes, you should be able to boot from either. Is this a known/reported bug?

I use both grub2-bios and grub2-efi-x86_64 in my system. I have a bios_grub partition and a ESP. So yes it is possible to have both. Syslinux/bios + grub2-efi-z86_64 also should not a issue. I initially had syslinux for bios boot but i changed back to grub2-bios as that was better for my needs (scripting support, rescue shell etc.)

ASUS UEFI people: Please try grub2 2.00~beta0 packages at https://www.dropbox.com/s/jep9t8edsgx3yt6 along with https://bitbucket.org/the_ridikulus_rat … ate-iso.sh for generating a updated iso.

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

despite the grub-uefi thingy...with kernel 3.2.7. and 3.2.8 I got the message during image creation with mkinitcpio that the ext4 filesystem was present twice. So I posted my /etc/mkinitcpio.conf on IRC and people started ranting about me having entries in the MODULES section like ext2, ext4, etc., therefore getting this message. Since I didn't enter enything to this file archboot does this by default. People said that in a modern linux system there is no need for MODULES anymore so I removed everything in it making it look like this:

MODULES=""

in the HOOK section they recommended adding fsck making it look like this:

HOOKS="base udev keymap autodetect pata scsi sata usbinput filesystems fsck"

after that mkinitcpio didn't complain about ext4 being present twice anymore. I even removed fglrx from the modules section even thought it is stated as needed in the Catalyst Wiki to either enter it in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf or /etc/rc.conf.

I built the image tonight with the newest files but that is as far as I got. Tomorrow I will see if it will boot and get back to you. Thanks for ALL the effort you are putting into this. I appreciate it!

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

I built the image extracted it to my flash drive. Cant boot into the shell it just passes on and boots from my harddrive. Booting to UEFI/USB or /efi/boot/bootx64.efi drops me straight to grub~beta shell.

Anything else just let me know please!!!

Thanks,

Jeff

My laptop is ASUS K42J Series, and I have got the black-screen problem now. As I have tried to make an update iso as #62, I got a new iso and copied files to flash driver via unetbootin.
The problem is still. It will be black-screen first and then reboot the computer. (It was just freezing before.)
But,  it is better for grub2-efi now. No more freezing rather than grub 1.99

Thanks

Bill

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

Can you try compiling grub2 2.00~beta1 using PKGBUILDs at https://www.dropbox.com/s/jth3mchm3hobmfy and updating the iso. This problem might be solved in beta1 as few uefi related fixes were added.

I've tried compiling grub2 2.00~beta1 using the PKGBUILD on AUR.The grub2 is working but also the same problem that cannot boot to the setup program.
It will leave the screen with black and reboot automatic later. I don't think it is the problem from grub2 now, but maybe from the boot image.

When I try to build grub2 2.00~beta1 I get " error: target not found: grub2-common=1:2.00beta1" . Sure this is my mistake, how to rectify the issue. I dont see the missing package, am I just overlooking it?

Thanks,

grub2-efi-x86_64=1:2.00beta1 depends on grub2-common=1:2.00beta1 , so you should have that package installed to be able to build using makepkg. Anyway you can try the 2.00~beta2 (x86_64) packages from https://www.dropbox.com/s/jep9t8edsgx3yt6 .

Just checking to see if you were still around and if anything new is happening with grub2?

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

@cphase: Few issues with /etc/grub.d/10_linux file, otherwise no issues with grub2 2.00beta2. Archboot setup script is being updated, but for check read the updated wiki instructions for manual install. The grub2 instructions in the setup script will not work with 2.00beta2 package.

Re: 2012.01-1 archboot "2k12-R1" ISO hybrid image released

I think I am going to ask a couple of stupid questions...
So, I have bought myself ASUS notebook and have black screen problem. As I understand it I need some beta version of GRUB2 and for this I have to make new ISO, but when I am trying to install Archboot via pacman it fails:

warning: cannot resolve "capi4k-utils>=050718-8", a dependency of "archboot"
warning: cannot resolve "bittorrent>=5.2.2-4", a dependency of "archboot"
:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      archboot

I kind of feel lost at this point. Can someone brief me in, please? I am new to UEFI world of pain :-)
