Disk not found while installation.

While installing Arch I get this error.

:: Mounting '/dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201504' to 'run/archiso/bootmnt'
Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201504 ...
ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201504' device did not show up after 30 seconds...
Falling back to interactive prompt
You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
[#rootfs]

I searched the web and all problems on the web seems to be because installation media being a USB.But I am using a CD here.
Also I can't access other commands such as fdisk,etc... although simple commands like ls etc... works fine.Also md5sum and sha1sum does'nt return any errors.

I think the problem might be my cd drive is being recognized by some other name.(Just a guess,most of the problems that I came upon online is because of a naming problem.)

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Wait, where did you get the arch image (.ISO)? Is it a recent one? The label says 201212, I suppose the problem might be you're using a very old image. Try downloading a recent one.

Edit: I just noticed a 201504. Where is this 201212 coming from then?

Re: Disk not found while installation.

I just copied and pasted a similar post I found on the internet.Except for the version date all the rest is the same.

That isn't helpful. Paste the actual errors...

We can't see images on your harddrive, you need to post them to a image sharing site. (edit: above edit made this irrelevant)

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Did you check integrity of ISO? As here (see checksums).

With I/O errors on on sr0 dev *I think* it is issue with your installation media.

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Yes I did.MD5SUM and SHA1SUM outputs gave the same strings on the website.

Re: Disk not found while installation.

I would try burning it again at lowest speed possible. If it does not work then your drive might be faulty. Do you have problems with other live cds?


I put at button on it. Yes. I wish to press it, but I'm not sure what will happen if I do.  (Gune | Titan A.E.)

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Hey now I am trying to install Arch and I saw this: /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201506 device did not show up after 30 seconds.

So I have to format USB and then I will burn it again more correctly? What exactly I have to do? I will do it in Ubuntu..

No -- if you are using `dd` to transfer the image then the USB stick will be formatted by the ISO image.

Try to load it again a few times, I have seen that error when attempting to load the ISO but it does work *eventually*

I did it many times and it did not work... What else I have to do except format - burn again the USB on Ubuntu?

How are you transferring the ISO image?

If you're not using `dd` you're doing it wrong...

Re: Disk not found while installation.

I am trying to make it with dd on ubuntu and it says: dd: failed to open ‘/path/to/archlinux.iso’: No such file or directory

I will change /path/to/archlinux.iso with the correct? For example /home/ubuntu/Downloads?

So the command will be:

dd bs=4M if=/home/ubuntu/Downloads/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

or

dd bs=4M if=/home/ubuntu/Downloads/archlinux-2015.06.01-dual.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

????

dd: failed to open ‘/home/ubuntu/Downloads/archlinux.iso’: No such file or directory

In the second case it says: dd: failed to open ‘/dev/sdc’: Permission denied

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Konstantinos, this is only meant for your benefit, but perhaps archlinux isn't right for you yet.  Archlinux is targetted at users with a good bit of linux experience already.  We have phenomenal documentation, but all of that documentation has some basic assumptions about a users starting knowledge: how to fill in template/placeholder information in commands, how/when to run commands as root, etc.

The errors above suggest that you will have a hard time following the wiki and man page documentation - this will likely just lead to much greater frustration with archlinux even if you get it installed.  So perhaps tinker with some other distros for a while first.

But if you want to move forward, you need to be root (or use sudo) to write to block devices.  But as you failed to fill in the appropriate information in those commands, I worry that you would actually try to write to /dev/sdx rather than where you usb drive is.  The error message at the end suggests you did actually use /dev/sdc as the output, but is this your flash drive?

Re: Disk not found while installation.

Hello Trilby. It was required  a sudo before the command. Now everything is ok and I go ahead on the installation. Thank you.

Re: Disk not found while installation.

I had this same problem (I/O errors).
Reason: used TAO mode when burning the CD.
Solution: use SAO (DAO) mode when burning the CD.

In TAO mode, the whole disk is readable and md5sum matches, but reading ends with I/O error. In SAO mode, there's no error. Apparently Linux gets confused about these TAO disks, and not only during boot but also when inserting the disk after boot (just look at dmesg). It's not only Arch Linux installation media; other disks show the same behaviour. I wonder if it's actually a bug in the Linux kernel?
