Installing bootloader freezes live USB (Intel MacBook Pro 13" 2020)

No journal files were found.

Also without chroot?

--boot=-0 --since=today?

Does not really matter. It will show then the journal log of the live session.

If this problem still exists. Please check the UUIDs in /etc/fstab.


I thought the '' was from when I typo’d when mounting for a second. It wasn’t. Anyhow:

Ok this problems exists also on the live ISO, but shouldn’t prevent you from booting…

May 16 20:17:17 manjaro-gnome kernel: ERROR: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI 34

So are these UUIDs the same as in /etc/fstab ?

cat /etc/fstab

cat /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information
# <file system>    	<dir>     	<type>	<options>      	<dump> <pass>
/dev/mapper/root-image /         	auto  	defaults       	0  	0

In chroot please. This is the live session. :wink:

# Static information about the filesystems.
# See fstab(5) for details.
# <file system> <dir> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

That’s literally the whole thing.

No entries? I guess there was a problem during the installation process.

You can add them:

UUID=25d97dec-829f-46a0-a17b-a58da9b70e43 swap swap defaults 0 0
UUID=b314de7f-fb51-4b58-b7e6-bb840a5e5cd1 ext4 / defaults 0 1
UUID=f40d70a8-07ec-40a2-bf6a-84b6c165af35 ext4 /home defauts 0 2

Apple hardware is designed exclusively for macOS not for a random Linux distribution.

Your best bet is use macOS - don’t waste time on a doomed endeavour - and most of all don’t waste forum members time with a pointless venture.

Where do I add them?

Just add them to the fstab (in chroot):

echo -e "UUID=25d97dec-829f-46a0-a17b-a58da9b70e43 swap swap defaults 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
echo -e "UUID=b314de7f-fb51-4b58-b7e6-bb840a5e5cd1 ext4 / defaults 0 1" >> /etc/fstab
echo -e "UUID=f40d70a8-07ec-40a2-bf6a-84b6c165af35 ext4 /home defauts 0 2" >> /etc/fstab

and check again:

cat /etc/fstab

I did that, but it still dropped me.
Should I take linux-aarhus’ advice and just stop?

I guess it would be better to stick with Appleware when using Apple Hardware. The problem seems to be deeper than the normal user would expect. Apple is not known to be a friend of other Operating Systems.

Alright then . . . I’ll reinstall macOS. Sorry for your time. :sweat_smile:
