First of all, Thank you for opening up a RR branch of Netrunner! I’m coming from Manjaro 0.8.11 KDE and I would really like to try Netrunner on my private desktop. But I have problems setting up a working UEFI installation.
The Netrunner Rolling 2014.09.01 ISO was based on Manjaro 0.8.10.
As with all Manjaro Hybrid ISO’s make sure you don’t use Unetbootin to create the USB media or UEFI installs WILL fail, the ISO needs to be burned to the USB the same way a DVD would be burned to a disk, by leaving the original partition layout and format of the ISO file in tact.
Here is the Netrunner Installation Tutorial: http://www.netrunner-os.com/faq/installation/
Also be sure to read the Netrunner Rolling Readme: http://www.netrunner-os.com/readme-1408/
Thank you for the quick answer. I created the USB drive using the SUSE Imagewriter. Worked perfectly.
The boot menu does not display the UEFI option for me (as shown in the installation guide), I choose the non-uefi option there.
While booting into the live-mode I see 2 “Failed” points. Is this intended?
Thank you for your help. I did those steps (mentioned in the readme) before trying this. The problem at hand is that I can’t create a clean boot entry (UEFI). Manjaro is able to boot from UEFI, later the installer displays that with a checkpoint requiring a /boot/efi partition. I also tryed to create one myself, using chroot and a fresh grub installation on the efi partition, but that didn’t work out.
Manjaro didn’t introduce the “UEFI” boot option until the 0.8.11 snapshot ISO’s.
As I pointed out earlier Netrunner Rolling 2014.09.01 was based on Manjaro 0.8.10.
So yes, that boot option not being on the live media would be normal.
Sorry, I didn’t get that from your post before. Is there a tool / way to create a LiveMedia of the current Netrunner state (with 0.8.11 under the hood). If not, do you already have a release date for the next LiveMediia?
Netrunner has used a modified version of thus up until now. You could try forcing an update to the latest version of thus from the Manjaro repositories while booted into the live session prior to installation, but I’m not 100% sure that would work as expected.
As I’m not part of the Netrunner development or release teams, I’m not exactly sure if they are planing to have another snapshot ISO based on Manjaro 0.8.12 (KDE SC 4) or if they are waiting for the Manjaro 0.9.0 plasma 5 ISO to be released. Manjaro 0.9.0 will use calamares instead of thus.
