Hey, I’ve been trying to install Endeavour OS since yesterday and I’m getting desperate . Endeavour doesn’t seem to like me .
I downloaded the EndeavourOS_Apollo_22_1.iso from https://endeavouros.com/latest-release/ and here from Alpix. Flashed it to a USB stick with the Balena Etcher and booted into the live session with the Nvidia drivers. There I updated the mirrors and started the online installer. Wipe the SSD and create a btrfs. In my first attempt of at least 5342450 tries I selected KDE Plasma and took out the Intel and AMD GPU drivers as well as Firefox, Dragon and KDEconnect. The installation runs without errors and says I can reboot now. I did that after pulling the usb stick, but after the grub boot manager the system does not boot into the desktop environment. Instead I see a terminal view in which the lines run down so fast that you can’t read them at all. At the end I can’t scroll up either.
OK I thought a new try. Stick inserted - everything made as just described, but now I have taken out no packages and left everything as it was. Same game installation runs through, reboot terminal view instead of desktop environment.
OK I thought maybe something is wrong with KDE, so next round with LXQT, same result.
Now I tried the offline installer. After the installation the system boots into the desktop environment and everything works fine.
But I did not want to give up yet. Another USB stick, the same ISO on it - same result.
Then I found this page https://endeavouros.com/news/apollo-iso-bug-is-fixed-for-most-users-and-also-a-workaround-for-those-who-need-it/ and tried to update Archlinux-keyring via the terminal before the installation. No success - same result.
I did the offline installation again and did the described https://endeavouros.com/news/apollo-iso-bug-is-fixed-for-most-users-and-also-a-workaround-for-those-who-need-it/. The result was that after a reboot I could not boot into XFCE anymore.
At this moment I tried to log in to the forum, unfortunately I can’t open any topics with my first account even after several hours. OK I thought maybe it will take some time to unlock.
Then I stopped for that day and continued today. Now I have tried as described here https://github.com/endeavouros-team/EndeavourOS-ISO to create an own ISO. Unfortunately this ISO was not able to boot into the live session.
Then I tried to flash a stick on a Windows notebook with Rufus (with the own iso) and the same result.
Thought now that can not be and to exclude everything installed Garuda Linux and Manjaro with KDE. With both no problems.
Now I downloaded the ISO EndeavourOS_Apollo_22_1.iso from https://endeavouros.com/latest-release/ but this time from Freedif. I have now tried countless variations with other USB sticks, other USB ports etc. always the same result. Since after the Grub Bootmanager the lines fly down only in such a way that you can’t read them, I came to the idea to record the screen with a camera in the time lapse. On the Video I found out that it shows “Failed to start load Kernel Modules”.
Next try I installed the LTS Kernel and the Zen Kernel. But that didn’t help either. Then I noticed that I still can’t open topics with my first registered account and I registered here again with this account and now I hope that someone can help me.
So summary stand now the PC boots after the offline installation in XFCE at least until I run sudo pacman -Syu and reboot. With the online installer I have not yet found a variation that boots into the desktop environment.
