Archlinux dual boot Dell xps15 9560

Hello.

I'm tryin to install archlinux next wo windows 10 on new dell xps15 laptop.
I saw https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dell_XPS_15_9560, I did part UEFI.

(small problem, I used Rufus, If i choose GPT UEFI and iso, then usb is not visible, if I choose GPT UEFI and DD then it is)

Then I did configuration step by step https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide.

This is new laptop with oginal system end there is few partitions. I resized windows partition and did my own (swap, /mnt, /home)

Here is it
https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/Hml253bx.jpg

I formatted swap partition

# mkswap /dev/nvme0n1p7

# swapon /dev/nvme0n1p7

and others

# mkfs.ext4 /dev/nvme0n1p8

# mkfs.ext4 /dev/nvme0n1p9

then mount partitions

mount nvme0n1p8 /mnt

mount nvme0n1p9 /mnt/home

but.. mounting boot partition?

mount nvme0n1p1 /mnt/boot

?? (i did it this way for tests)

After that I did next steps (documentation):
- Install the base packages
- Generate an fstab file
- chroot
- timezone
- locale
- hostname
- rootpsswd

I stack in boot loader.
I don't know what I should choose and how to configure it.

Anyone want to help me?
I will be grateful.

Thanks
W.

Personally I'd use systemd-boot as it is easy to configure and already installed.
Follow it's wiki page for instructions.

Yes that's alright, you should ensure that it has an entry in your fstab so that it remains mounted and will allow for seamless kernel updates.

Re: Archlinux dual boot Dell xps15 9560

Ok, I configured systemd-boot. I have a menu with linux and windows (windows didnt want to start, but later).

I have a problem during turn off/reboot

lines (sorry, but i have consoel on other laptop, so its not copy-paste)

watchdog: eathdog did not stop
sd-remou[xxx]: Failed to remount '/oldroot/sys/fs/cgroup/(different values)' readonly: Device or resource busy
shutdown[xxx]: Remounting '/oldroot/sys/fs/cgroup/(different values)' failed abnormally, child process 5xx aborted
shutdown[xxx]: Unmounting '/oldroot/sys/fs/cgroup' failed abnormally, child process 5xx aborted
sd-remou[xxx]: Failed to unmount '/oldroot': Device or resource busy
sd-unmou[xxx]: Failed to unmount '/oldroot/(different values)': Device or resource busy
(...)

System didnt start de facto, some tmp problems

... nouveau pointer to tmds table invalid

but I did not configure grahics at all, so I think it could be a reason. Am I right?

About reboot error, there is so much windows partitions (orginal with system, recovery etc, https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/Hml253bx.jpg).
Maybe one of them? i dont know. '/oldroot/sys' looks like linux smile

Re: Archlinux dual boot Dell xps15 9560

The reboot and shutdown errors are a known bug that will be fixed with the next version of systemd.  They are nothing to worry about.
