Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

Hi all.
I whose trying to install Arch from latest installation ISO without any success. I whose thinking that whose problem with UEFI and USB combination, similar to this
Boot USB installation as EFI
I've whose getting same output as on this screenshot
arch_test_2012_12_06_21_30_38.jpg

But after studying error messages, I've noticed some wrong file naming:

\ARCH\X86_64\USR_LIB_MODULES_FS.SFS 
\ARCH\X86_64\ROOT_IMAGE_FS.SFS 
\ARCH\I686\USR_LIB_MODULES_FS.SFS 
\ARCH\I686\ROOT_IMAGE_FS.SFS
\ARCH\ANY\USR_SHARE_FS.SFS 

Setup expects to find

\ARCH\X86_64\USR-LIB-MODULES.FS.SFS 
\ARCH\X86_64\ROOT-IMAGE.FS.SFS 
\ARCH\I686\USR-LIB-MODULES.FS.SFS 
\ARCH\I686\ROOT-IMAGE.FS.SFS
\ARCH\ANY\USR-SHARE.FS.SFS 

After changing file names, setup boots up normally and start shell. This is problem with file names or in ARCHISO.IMG?

Hope it helps for others to run installation media.

Re: Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

What tool did you use for extracting the image? Tha case sensitivity is wrong with most Windows extractors (but works under Cygwin). I put that note in wiki but it got deleted https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?ti … B_from_ISO :-(

Re: Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

I've extracted image using Total Commander (ISO plugin). It's not a matter of case sensitivity but wrong file names or mistake in script.

Re: Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

Thanks to both of you. Turns out using Windows 8 "mount ISO" feature or WinZip to extract the ISO will rename the files (USR_LIB_MODULES_FS.SFS instead of USR-LIB-MODULES.FS.SF).

7-Zip on the other hand keeps the correct case and file names.

Re: Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

This happens because you are using a tool that does not support Rock Ridge IS09660 extension.

Re: Wrong file naming on latest installation ISO

thanks alot for the clarification, I tried to search Google on this trouble and I finally found this post!

I also had to rename, although I extracted with 7-zip I renamed both the ROOT_IMAGE.FS.SFS files to whatever was tried at the prompt ...

We really should put some pre-built alternative images up for this on the download-page smile
