Since the introduction of Apple’s M1 hardware, the Linux community efforts to run Linux on it have been in full swing. We also wondered how EndeavourOS would run on them. Although this tutorial isn’t for running EndeavourOS native on M1 hardware but on Parallel desktops, we still are delighted to share this tutorial with you. Just see it as a first step of running our project on M1.

Community member Specialworld83 made a tutorial accompanied by a video, thank you Specialworld83 for putting so much effort into this.

How to get EndeavourOS running in Parallel desktop on M1 hardware

The step by step guide

Format partition

mkfs.fat /dev/sdb1

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb2

Mount partition

mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt

Download archlinux arm

cd /mnt

wget 1

bsdtar -xpf ArchLinuxARM-aarch64-latest.tar.gz

rm -rf ArchLinuxARM-aarch64-latest.tar.gz

Get into chroot

mount --bind /mnt /mnt && cd /mnt && rm /mnt/etc/resolv.conf && cp /etc/resolv.conf etc && mount -t proc /proc proc && mount --make-rslave --rbind /sys sys && mount --make-rslave --rbind /dev dev && mount --make-rslave --rbind /run run

chroot /mnt /bin/bash

prepare multiple download

nano /etc/pacman.conf

Search parallel and remove flag

ParallelDownloads = 5

Init pacman keyring

pacman-key --init

pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm

Commands for install

pacman -Syu base linux linux-firmware vim arch-install-scripts efibootmgr networkmanager network-manager-applet dialog os-prober mtools dosfstools base-devel linux-headers

prepare boot

ls /boot

cp -rv /boot/* /tmp/

mount /dev/sdb1 /boot ## mount boot efi partition

cp -rv /tmp/* /boot/

config system

dbus-uuidgen > /etc/machine-id ## Fix for missing machine-id

genfstab / >> /etc/fstab ## Check your fstab after issuing this command to make sure there aren’t other partitions

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Rome /etc/localtime ## This is if you’re located in Europe with Rome’s timezone

hwclock --systohc

nano /etc/locale.gen ## Select your locales


echo “LANG=it_IT.UTF-8” >> /etc/locale.conf ##Assuming you want this locale

echo “endeavouros” >> /etc/hostname

nano /etc/hosts ## Here we use vim to modify the hosts file

ADD MANUAL IP localhost

::1 localhost

Install bootloader

bootctl --path=/boot install ## Here we begin setting up systemd-boot

Enable NetworkManager

systemctl enable NetworkManager


nano /boot/loader/loader.conf

timeout 10

#console-mode keep

default arch-*


nano /boot/loader/entries/entries.arch.conf

title EndeavourOS

linux /Image

initrd /initramfs-linux.img

options root=/dev/sdb2 rw

Download script in /opt

cd /opt

For endeavourOS

git clone 1

Exit ssh

Create system into parallel

System Debian

halt system

Create VM

Start EndeavourOS

cd /opt/install-script

chmod 777
