Issue installing ArchBang from Guide [Solved]

I was following this guide: http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=5653

And when I got up to the point of where it says to 'install a bootloader  / syslinux-install_update -i -a -m'

I get this error "/ (root) file system is not supported by Syslinux"

In gparted my /sda1 partition is set to ext4 along with sda3 being set to ext4.

sda1 flags are set to boot, esp, and legacy_boot in gparted.

using  lsblk -l in the terminal, sda1 doesn't have a boot /boot mountpoint. I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong at this point for it to not be working.


[ablive@archbang ~]$ lsblk -l
NAME  MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
loop0   7:0    0 535.2M  1 loop /run/archiso/sfs/airootfs
sda     8:0    0    20G  0 disk
sda1    8:1    0   7.2G  0 part
sda2    8:2    0     3G  0 part
sda3    8:3    0   9.8G  0 part
sr0    11:0    1   592M  0 rom  /run/archiso/bootmnt

I use grub, much easier for a newbie.

Im yet to delve into syslinux but arch wiki has a good document on it here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Syslinux

See http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=5837  (last 3 posts dated May2017)

At the bootloader stage of ABinstall (and using Grub);
Select "manual"
Then within Manual, type "sudo grub-install /dev/sda" [assuming dev is SDA].
Then "exit" from Manual.

Good luck!
