Installation completes but GRUB doesn't show an entry to boot into the newly installed system

blendOS.iso downloaded from Master Build Server mirror (4636db55) on 2024-06-24 Loaded on a USB drive with sudo dd if="blendOS.iso" of="/dev/sda" bs=4M status=progress as per the installation guide (https://blendos.co/install/normal-pc/#flash-a-usb) Booted on a UEFI system. Ran the installer, target is NVMe drive /dev/nvme1n1. On first attempt, installation fails instantly as the drive has an existing partition and the installer is incapable (bug?) of simply wiping the selected drive on its own. Second attempt after wiping clean the drive with GParted and rebooting for good measure, the install wizard finishes seemingly successfully (although literally all repo mirror urls seem to have failed?) Rebooted and entered UEFI's Boot Menu Selected new boot entry. GRUB menu only shows the "UEFI Firmware Settings" option, nothing else. New /boot partition isn't empty (as opposed to some other tickets here), there's the /boot/grub folder with all the grub files, and in /boot/EFI there's blend/grubx64.efi and BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI. Running grub-mkconfig in chroot does nothing.
Solution:
I guess it won't be possible to install the distro unless the mirror is back up, seems the iso is just not ready for public use yet

The mirror URL failure probably means it did not work Please check that you can access https://cloudflaremirrors.com/archlinux/core/os/x86_64 You can also try a redownload Rebuilds happen Without a version change

There’s the issue Happens to a lot of people, means a worker failed It might be trying to point to a mirror that’s down Rudra said he’d let people change the install mirror and never did that

Do I just keep running the installer ad infinitum until it doesn't die?

It only checks that one Refresh the mirror page ad infinitum Once it works try the installer again :trollge: In all seriousness you can try reaching out to cloudflare about it They operate the service
