Very, very weird. There was little else I could do that wouldn’t result in an instant kernel panic. Since I was testing an unstable pre-release image, I decided to boot into Windows, deep format the drive as FAT32, and use Unetbootin to burn an older stable copy of Antergos that I knew worked.
I booted it up, and to my surprise, I came up with the same error again! I tried using LiLi instead, but it still didn’t work. I even tested my images with VirtualBox to check if they were clean, and sure enough, they were. Frustrated, I wrote down the error and Googled it. It seems to be a particularly nasty bug with Unetbootin that has apparently affected others.
I decided to write the ISO directly to the flash drive without using Unetbootin nor LiLi as my middle-man. Let’s get our hands dirty in the terminal.
