Welcome :slight_smile:

Seems we need more details.

How you install which DE?
Post the full ISO name and where you dwnload them.
Best way to install is to use or Garuda Downloader.

  • Boot the PC and press the manufacturer specific key to open your device's setup utility. Common keys used: Esc, Delete, F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, or F12. Find more common keys and buttons.
  • Disable fastboot and secure boot. It may not be possible to disable the latter explicitly - try clearing the secure boot keys instead. Check the manual of your device/motherboard for further info.
  • Make sure that your device's SATA controller is set to AHCI mode in your device's setup utility. Otherwise, the Linux kernel may not be able to detect your drive.
  • If your firmware supports UEFI then configure your device to use UEFI only in its setup utility. UEFI is much preferred over BIOS whenever possible.
  • Create a bootable USB using Garuda Downloader or (DD/Etcher/Ventoy/Rufus).
  • From the setup utility, boot to the usb drive:
    You might see separate commands for the same device. For example, you might see UEFI USB Drive and BIOS USB drive. Each command uses the same device and media but boots the PC in a different firmware mode. We recommend to boot the drive in UEFI mode if listed.
  • After booting the live media, start the installer and follow the guided installation procedure.

The OS that i have tryed to install is Garuda KDE Dr460nized, at first i try to download by torrent. Afther that i tyed by using Garuda Intallator. I have desable every think and follow the instalation step by step as i say in the website. Everytinks go fine until the end of the instalation, afther i reset the computer it goes again to the USB media and if a remove it it apear a message saying " all boot options are tried.".

When i tryed to re-install it it seems that is installed, but the BIOS dosent show it as an option to initialize with

Are you dual-booting with Windows or another OS or it is ONLY that one installation of Garuda?

Is only that, i delete windows for Garuda

Did you follow SGS's steps in his post above?

Seems you install grub on the USB-Stick.

I have tryed to install Grub but it seem unsucess, do you have a tutorial or sometink like that?

Or just install again :slight_smile: and do not use the stick as boot partition.

@Saltybee can you confirm you have booted to the BIOS menu and reviewed the options there? You may need to explicitly enable booting from the target device.

Also disabling secure boot is not optional.

Please respond to these bullet points:


Look, i have tryed to install grub using chroot and it gave me this error

What did you do before issuing the command?

What error, if any, did you get when you clicked on INSTALL GARUDA LINUX from the gui window inside Garuda after booting with the USB stick?
Did you choose the option to ERASE entire disk when installing?
What is that /dev/sdb disk, is it the USB stick or a real drive?
Did you mount the EFI partition before sending that command?


Guys, the problem was in the machine i was in stalling it, i chage the computer and it work. Thanks you guys so much.
