I have this shitty Acer ES15 (celeron,4gb,intelHDgpu) laptop which has a annoying bios that doesn't know legacy boot modes anymore. While installing elive on it i get a hard hang (everything just stops.mouse/kb does nothing.only way to recover 10sec powerbuttonboot) at the end of the installation :
I: Building Grub configuration
I: GRUB in EGI mode
Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
Tried automatic partition mode and made partitions also manually. And tried making just one partition and ignoring about the warnings that you need EFI partition. I latter case it installed ok, but machine couldn't boot naturally.
Only hdd is a 128gb SSD.
I also ran the installer directly from console with root priviledges while simultaneously monitoring /var/log/messages for anything helpfull, but i get nothing in the log concerning the crash.
Any ideas i could throw to the installer? Maybe tell it to skip the grub installing and do it manually afterwards? of course at this point the system is mostly ready and i'm now starting to see if i can get something done after a new reboot to the liveusb. So far i've tried 3.8.2 , 3.8.7 , 3.8.8 64bit images.
In live mode elive runs pretty well on this laptop so it's going to get the whole machine to itself
Earlier i did an elive install to Lenovo T450 which has also winsloth10 installed. That went rather well. Had to do some trickery to the hdd, but then all went well.
