Hi all please help me, I build my first computer installed everything correctly turn it on, everything work great. I can get to the bios and mess with the setting, but when i try to boot from the usb stick to load Arch linux the Aorus logo pop up than it go straight to a blank screen with a flashing underscore. Ive been searching on google how to fix it nothing is really helping me out. Ive called Aorus customer service and ive been on hold for two days and counting. Somebody please help me with this issue? do I have to download Grub bootloader? is it just an update fix? Thank you in advance, down below is the link to my pc spec.

I installed ArchLinux from a USB on my own system and it worked the first time for me. Try to make sure you selected to boot from the USB from the BIOS menu (in case it isn't). Try different USB ports (in case you haven't). Make sure the USB cable is really plugged into your motherboard (just in case).

FYI my system is at https://pcpartpicker.com/list/R96LTB

Like Derp88_, I'm curious if you made a bootable USB or if you copied the ISO to the USB without using Rufus or any other tools

I know the USB port is working because it picking it up when i go to the select boot device, i just always end up with a blank screen. I dont know what im doing wrong.

Sounds like there isn't a bootloader. How did you create bootable media?
