I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I basically used the latest arch linux live disk in a VM (Linux KVM),
- booted the latest arch linux live disk in a VM (Linux KVM on Arch)
- made a single partition
- formatted that with btrfs -m dup
- mounted the partition, ran pacstrap with base and base-devel
- genfstab -U /mnt /mnt/etc/fstab
- arch-chroot into the partition at /mnt
- install grub through pacman, run grub-install /dev/vda and grub-mkconfig -o /etc/grub/grub.cfg
- Grub throws a few error messages: "error: no such device: [some device ID].\n loading linux core repo kernel \n error no such partition \n loading initial ramdisk \n error you need to load the kernel first \n press any key to continue"
I can still boot the machine by going into the grub commandline, doing "linux (hd0,msdos1)/boot/vmlinuz...." and the same for initrd, and running "boot" to boot it, but that seems a little inconvenient. Yes I'm cutting short some things like hostname and what not, but it should boot as far as I know.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Edit: I changed /etc/default/grub to not use UUIDs and ran grub-mkconfig again, here's the grub.cfg it generated: http://pastebin.ca/3746197 it still will not boot, though.
