Error loading \vmlinuz-linux: Not found (SOLVED)

Hi!

I'm following the Beginners' Guide. This is my /boot/loader/entries/arch.conf:

title          Arch
linux          /vmlinuz-linux
initrd         /initramfs-linux.img
options      root=/dev/sda1 rw

So, when I reboot and try to boot the hd, it returns this error: Error loading \vmlinuz-linux: Not found. I tried to overwrite to /boot/vmlinuz-linux, without success. What have I forgotten to do?

Thanks

That is not really enough information to help you.

Re: Error loading \vmlinuz-linux: Not found (SOLVED)

Can you provide more details:

Is this an efi bootloader?  Which one?

How is the disk partitioned?

The kernel will almost certainly not be at /boot/vmlinuz-linux while the bootloader is running - generally it will be in the working root directory (base of whichever partition the bootloader is running on).  But depending on which efi loader you are using and how it is configured, you may have to copy the installed kernel over to the ESP.

My guess is that you have forgotten to mount the EFI System Partition before using pacstrap, that means the kernel was never copied to the ESP, but only the root partition.

I installed Gummiboot.

/dev/sda1 => FAT32 => EFI partition
/dev/sda2 => ext4 => /
/dev/sda3 => swap
/dev/sda4 => ext4 => /home

I see. When I used pacstrap I forgot that I didn't boot as EFI. Well, it makes sense now. I'll format the partitions and try again.

Re: Error loading \vmlinuz-linux: Not found (SOLVED)

No need to repartition - just mount the esp, and reinstall the kernel.

But also note that your config in the first post has sda1 as root, that should be sda2.

I know, it was a try. I know it should by /dev/sda2. Ok, I'll try this.

EDIT: this was it. Thanks!

Still relevant two years later. Thanks!
