Hi guys. I’ve been using EndeavourOS for a while but I have ran into a weird issue.
Starting today, when I attempt to reinstall EndeavourOS on the same laptop I had it on before (and had installed it on as recently as last week), I can see (and I guess install to) either of my two SSDs in my laptop - one is an NVMe and the other is SATA - during the installer / live USB.
But once the system is installed, I can no longer see the SATA SSD (once I install EOS onto the NVMe) now.
I have tried installed the XFCE and KDE versions (prefer XFCE, just tried KDE as a sanity check). Installing Manjaro, that OS can see both hard drives after installation.
Gparted and lsblk both don’t see the secondary SATA SSD either.
I’ve tried formatting the SATA SSD in ext4, having it as no partition, having it have GPT or MSDOS style, but nothing changes it.
Since Manjaro can see both, it has to be EndeavourOS.
This has to be from something recently changed or updated, since it worked within the past two weeks just fine.
There is no option for anything about SATA being RAID vs AHCI, or anything for RST. There’s Intel VTX and Intel VTD, which I’ve tried changing but had no results. This laptop’s BIOS is pretty bare bones actually…
I didn’t touch anything in the BIOS between the install within the last two weeks and today.
The Live USB does show the secondary SSD. There is no dual booting either, it’s just going to be a storage SSD.
I am in the process of doing a full Windows reinstall to try and update the BIOS in case they added that feature. But I am positive I changed nothing between installing this two weeks ago and now with the BIOS settings, and it used to work just fine. And since the Live USB sees it, something about the install makes it unable to see it. Why would a Live USB be able to see it but not the full install? Is there a package or anything that the Live USB uses that it doesn’t install, to see all drives?
It could be the latest kernel. You have to realize Manjaro runs it’s own repo and kernels are usually behind. EndeavourOS has all the latest Arch packages. The current kernel is 6.2-1 which just got updated.
Edit: The output on the live ISO is 6.1.9 and the installed system will have the latest kernel 6.2-1 so I’m assuming it’s a kernel issue.
You could try using downgrade to downgrade the kernel and kernel headers?
