endeavouros-2019.12.22-x86_64.iso I am using this particular ISO, I used Etcher to burn the ISO to my USB drive and I booted into EndevourOS. When I booted into this distro I was greeted with some options whether to install endevour, update the app etc.
I clicked on install EndevourOS, and the installer started prompted me if I want offline or online installer, I selected online installer.
On the welcome page, it shows what language to install, but beneath it, it showed me waiting for two modules please wait and I waited for like 5 minutes and nothing happened. I tried to restart the installer but the installer would not open up. I restarted my PC and again booted into live mode and I tried to update the app (which worked fine) it still did not work, same issue.
I am able to connect to the Internet just fine but I don’t know why the installer is not working. I have installed other distros such as Manjaro with the same installer and it works just fine.
Edit: On VirtualBox, this ISO works just fine. But on my main computer I can’t install it at all.
Ok so on my main PC it will show waiting for 2 modules instead of 27 modules and it will not do anything other than to show the loading animation (I took this image of the VM setup but this is where the problem occurs on my main PC).
ISO burning issue, how did you burn the ISO to the USB stick?
Secure Boot, did you disable it?
internet connection, does command ping 184.108.40.206 give any reply?
If possible, a more informative picture is the one at the real hardware, since it may show a terminal output too. You should update the Welcome app from the button Update this app! first and then try to install, and then take the picture/screenshot about the issue and show it here.
Right now I am in liveISO. Ok so I reinstalled Etcher (there might have been an update I am not too sure) and I did reburn the ISO to my USB drive. I booted into live mode and the same issue happened.
I rebooted my PC and this time I did a full system update in live iso (sudo pacman -Syyu) and I then opened the installer but nothing happened. Nothing opens up.
Also for the ping 220.127.116.11 I did do that and it does work fine all though it seems to do keep pining forever

This is the output.
Edit: When I start the Endevour welcome launcher I then select start the installer option, and when I pick both the offline and the online installer I get this on the terminal.
Edit: I had a look at the first article but I don’t think it has anything related to my current issue. as I can boot in just fine but I can’t run the installer properly.
Also with the 2nd article it does suggest to use Etcher for Windows. And that is exactly what I am using.
There seems to be something weird going on with the way how my other partitions are mounted. When I ls both the /mnt and the /media directories nothing was mounted. I did try to mount sda2 (that is where Windows 7 is installed) sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt and it just hanged and did nothing. But on file explorer the partitions are shown but when you click on it it does nothing.
Yep so if it’s your disk we want see how you partition it exactly, what is your scheme ?
Something is wrong there…a Shootscreen from GParted that you have by default on the Live would give us a better comprehension !
I am using MBR as I have a legacy BIOS. So I have two ntfs partitions for Windows, and there are 2 more ext4 partitions (I think 2 more or 1 parition I can’t remember) and that is for the previous GNU/Linux distro which still exists.
I ran gparted but it is taking forever and my hardddrive did spin a bit but that was all it is still doing the same thing.
Yeah eventually I did leave it on for a very long time.
I believe sda3 is the root partition for Kubuntu and sda4 is for the /home parition.
I am not too sure what fastboot enabled means. But my BIOS has restarted to its defaults as the CMOS battery is dead and I sometimes do have blackouts. So I don’t at all change any of the BIOS’s settings. And Windows is not hibernated.
What is strange is that I have used other distros that use this similar installer and they have worked just fine. I have no idea what EndeavourOS is not working
