[SOLVED]Can't install arch on Dell Venue 8 Pro

Hi everyone,

as described in this post I have a particular device, a Dell Venue 8 Pro and I wanted to install archlinux.  Now I made crap and I want to reinstall it.
I had to follow this guide to make a USB that my device can boot. But I have a problem:

error: no such device: ARCH_202011.
error: file `/arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz-linuz` not found.
error: you need to load the kernel first. 

I had worked around the problem using a script that made this guy, but the link to the script doesn't exist anymore.
So, what's the problem?

This is my grub.cfg:

insmod part_gpt
insmod part_msdos
insmod fat

insmod efi_gop
insmod efi_uga
insmod video_bochs
insmod video_cirrus

insmod font

if loadfont "${prefix}/fonts/unicode.pf2" ; then
    insmod gfxterm
    set gfxmode="1024x768x32;auto"
    terminal_input console
    terminal_output gfxterm
fi

menuentry "Arch Linux archiso x86_64 UEFI USB" {
    set gfxpayload=keep
    search --no-floppy --set=root --label ARCH_202011
    linux /arch/boot/x86_64/vmlinuz-linux archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_202011 add_efi_memmap
    initrd /arch/boot/intel_ucode.img /arch/boot/x86_64/archiso.img
}

Re: [SOLVED]Can't install arch on Dell Venue 8 Pro

This is a 64 bit CPU with a 32 bit UEFI. This should get you started: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Un … 2-bit_UEFI

I still have PTSD from my Bay Trail tablet, but once it works it works :-)

Re: [SOLVED]Can't install arch on Dell Venue 8 Pro

lsblk -f with the to be used stick inserted? The error seems quite self-explanatory. It doesn't find the disk/partition labeled as ARCH_202011

There also seems to be a typo either in your message account or the config vmlinuz-linuz != vmlinuz-linux
