Hi, I am trying to install EndeavourOS on an extended partition
Here is an overview of the partitions setup:
– /dev/sda6 fat32 /efi
– /dev/sda5 ext4 /
I am installing on an extended partition since for some reason i can’t use gpt, i’ve disabled legacy boot from my BIOS.
Every time the installation process reaches the bootloader step, it’ll fail with the following message:
Boost.Python error in job “bootloader”.
No such file or directory “/tmp/calamares-root…/loader/loader.conf”
I read somewhere that i should’ve checked the format option, but there was no such thing.
The EOS version i am installing is the cassini nova.
difference isn’t going to be perfomace persay as it is limits.
MBR is limited to 4 partitions to a disk where GPT is limited to 128 partitions to a disk. Also any ssd or nvme drives that are over a terrabyte should be gpt as MBR has a size limit (not sure of what it is anymore)
Another lesson: in a legacy BIOS node, installation according to the MBR scheme is supported, while in UEFI mode, GPT is supported. Perhaps the confusing thing is that you can often choose both in the BIOS.
