Garuda linux stuck in first boot (loading screen)

I don't think the chroot was correct.
Maybe you could try to open a terminal from the live USB and use the tutorial.

i tried to make chroot manually and ı got this output. What should ı do ?

Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
grub-install: error: /boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition.
/usr/bin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).

When do you get this, when you enter

sudo garuda-chroot /mnt/broken/@

?
That one is the last step to chroot, you don't need to install the bootloader.
After that, you should continue with the bullet points in my first post.

There's a proper fix for this coming in mkinitcpio 31, and that will be included in a future installer image.

Until then, you can use a chroot to edit the necessary files on your installed system:

Please revise the installer to add vmd to modules - #5 by ricklinux - General system - EndeavourOS

yes ı got this error when ran the command you mentioned. ı will pass this step.

It looks like it is getting closer :blush:

Although I see a lot of stuff in there other than the install/block: include vmd module by @nl6720 in #60 that we need here... (I mean, I hope everything will be OK with the new release)

Regardless of when this change comes, I think you could and should try to move forward.
The reported errors

Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
grub-install: error: /boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition.
/usr/bin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).

look a bit strange to me at the initial chrooting step (I would have expected them maybe when install the grub later on (which is not needed here), but I'm not a developer...).
In the next outputs provided when you try to chroot, please copy the entire command + output from the system, to have a clearer picture of what was executed successfully and what went wrong.
And also that "/boot/efi doesn't look like an EFI partition" is a bit wierd.
I'm not really sure what else we could try. I think you should make a step back and provide:

  • the disks set-up with the output of fdisk -l and lsblk -o name,type,fstype,size,uuid,mountpoint
  • your system specs, with inxi -Faz

Soon is an abbreviation for, it's ready when it's ready. :smiley:

Thank you. I was having the same problem ("mount: /new_root: can't find UUID...") and these steps worked for me.
The only issue I had was that the Windows entry was gone from the Grub menu but I had made a backup of the original grub.cfg and was able to correct the new grub.cfg manually.

By-the-way, I see that soon is getting closer... :eyes:
This one below is a development daily build (or something like that, anyway nothing official), but I see for the first time mkinitcpio 31-1:
https://iso.builds.garudalinux.org/iso/garuda/dr460nized/211202/garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-211202.iso
If you want to give it just a try reinstalling and see if it works...
But I strongly suggest that you reinstall whenever there will be a new official release (also here, Soon™ :slight_smile: )

That's a nifty Help Vampire avatar, SGS. I may need to 'borrow' it occasionally, if you don't mind.

Only for nefarious purposes, of course. :wink:
