So here goes. I'm pretty new at Linux, actually really new, but I'm okay with computers generally speaking. Mostly Windows, actually. To get to the point this is the issue I'm having. After installing and restarting the PC I get stuck at loading. I don't want to dual boot with Windows so I did the erase the partition, now, mind yourself I have a HP laptop with a pretty "new" I guess SSD which I think it's causing the problems. Even when I installed Windows for the first time I needed to inject the driver into the usb boot.
I really want to use this distro, I am amazed by the eye candy and the effort that has been put into it and I need help.
I got all sort of errors when running for example CHROOT I get this message:
"grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sda1. Check your device.map."
The HDD is 250 GB so if there is anybody here that really wants to help me, please give me 15 minutes and tell me exactly what steps should I take in partitioning and furthermore installing the Linux GRUB and running smoothly in the end.
Thank you so much,
I have a new hp just like you with 11th gen CPU and Intel Iris Xe as GPU, also with the same issue and that screen appear when I press esc on the bootloader try with this detailed explanation this should work :
0 - boot from Garuda iso bootable usb
1 - Choose chroot in the Garuda Welcome prompt
2 - Choose You installation of Garuda linux (with numbers)
2 - install text editor like vim sudo pacman -S vim
3 - sudo vim /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
4 - Add vmd to MODULES="..."
5 - Make sure to save the file
6 - mkinitcpio -P linux or mkinitcpio -p linux ( or whatever command regenerates the mkinitfile for you)
Lets start with the facts you have a brick your trying to install Garuda on, How do you really expect any help you have not given one detail you don't even know if it has a SSD or SSD please read the wiki on how to help others to help you.
