PostPosted: Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:00 am    Post subject: Fresh installation kernel stuck after GRUB Reply with quote

Hello there,
I started a new installation on an Asus G20AJ everything seemed to work, but after reboot the system prompts me the minimal grub2 shell.
here I can already see, despite I am using efi, a partition with msdos1 (before on this machine I had kubuntu and Win10).
Even though I try manually to start the system:
Code:

set root=(hd0,gpt6)
linux vmlinux-4.4.39-gentoo root=/dev/sdb6 ro
boot

After RETURN the system simply freezes on the above display without doing anything and not even responding to the keyboard.

This are my disks:
Code:

Device          Start        End    Sectors   Size Type
/dev/sda1          34     262177     262144   128M Microsoft reserved

/dev/sdb6  162013184 211337215  49324032 23.5G Linux filesystem


/dev/sdb is SSD
/dev/sdb a normal hard disk

This is my fstab:
Code:

/dev/sdb6               /               ext4            noatime,discard 0 1
/dev/sda6               /boot           vfat            noatime         0 1
/dev/sdb2               /boot/efi       vfat            noatime         0 1    (I tried after the official guide to install grub2 on /boot/efi, that's why this entry is listed)
/dev/sda7               /tmp            ext4            noatime         0 1
/dev/sda3               /var            ext4            noatime         0 1
/dev/sda4               none            swap            sw              0 0
/dev/sda5               /home           ext4            noatime         0 1



I followed the official guide from gentoo (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Full/Installation#Default:_GRUB2), but when I had to install grub2, it says to mount EFI Partition or have /boot vfat formatted.
Here I might have done the error: I formatted /boot as vfat (although I had a old /boot/efi on /dev/sdb2) and installed in here grub.
So in my thinking, the system is still booting on /dev/sda2 where there is no info about the system.

Thanks for the help!

check with blkid,

try to refer the partition in another fashion.

e.g. uuid, whatever works


Those partition naming of grub is not that easy. I usually try around with the grub shell, or just edit it until it works. with my maybe this is the right name for the partition.

I think you named the partition wrong. You may have no support for the filesystem / device / ...

--
Since I use lvm2 i got rid of those UUID, partition refering names. lvm2 needs an initramfs, but i can use human readable volume names which makes things more clear.

Ok, can you help me with this? I have no clue how is working since I always have used LILO or the former grub.
This is the result of blkid:
Code:

I mean using grub-mkconfig he should take care of the partitions. How can I change it using uuid?

Try this first

LEts assume you want to load the microcode for example and have an initramfs from genkernel (both optional features)
if not just comment it #initrd /microcode.cpio /initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.2.3-gentoo


Code:


menuentry ' Boot Gentoo   ' {

echo    'adding gpt partition support'
insmod part_gpt

echo    'Changing boot partition'
set root=(hd1,gpt2)

echo    'Booting '
linux vmlinux-4.4.39-gentoo root=UUID=88c559e1-7ac0-4966-bbce-0c1d072e1b11 rootfstype=ext4 ro
    initrd /microcode.cpio /initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.2.3-gentoo

echo    'done'



}



I think the above one should work. If not try the one below:


Code:
menuentry ' Boot Gentoo  2 ' {

echo    'adding gpt partition support'
insmod part_gpt

echo    'Changing boot partition'
set root=(hd1,gpt2)

echo    'Booting '
linux vmlinux-4.4.39-gentoo root=UUID=fa62056a-6d51-45ab-8209-915f113ef4e7 rootfstype=ext4 ro
    initrd /microcode.cpio /initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-4.2.3-gentoo

echo    'done'



}

Having more than one EFI System Partition can confuse some (maybe all) UEFI implementations.
Your thought, "So in my thinking, the system is still booting on /dev/sda2 where there is no info about the system." is highly likely correct.

For fun, make a rEFInd ( http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/getting.html ) cd or usb, boot it, and see if it can sort out your bootable options. If you like it, build an efi stub kernel and leave it at /boot/vmlinuz-whatever version , delete /boot/efi ( or /boot/EFI ), install rEFInd on the windows ESP per http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/installing.html#windows .

Ignoring rEFInd; saving grub
You may be able to sort out which Grub is the new grub in the UEFI/BIOS and select it as first to boot.
You may be able to sort out which Grub is the new grub from efibootmgr -v run in a UEFI chroot and select it as first to boot.
See https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Efibootmgr#Managing_EFI_boot_entries .
Slightly more elegant: From the UEFI chroot, run rm -rf /boot/EFI (or /boot/efi if my memory fails) , mkdir /boot/efi , mount /dev/sdb2 boot/efi , reinstall grub per https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GRUB2#UEFI_with_GPT .

I just edited my previous post. I think the issue was the wrong reference to the vfat partition. I tried to provide hole grub2 section, just for copy and paste.

Thanks to all of you for the information.
I was attracted by the efibootmgr, so I ran it on the machine (currently I am in sysrescue remotely):
Code:

sysresccd boot # efibootmgr -v
BootCurrent: 0005
Timeout: 1 seconds
BootOrder: 0001,0000,0004,0005,0003
Boot0000* ubuntu        HD(2,GPT,ff42c69d-48f9-45fc-9a54-6d2fab380c12,0x190800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\UBUNTU\SHIMX64.EFI)
Boot0001* gentoo        HD(2,GPT,ff42c69d-48f9-45fc-9a54-6d2fab380c12,0x190800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\gentoo\grubx64.efi)
Boot0003  Windows Boot Manager  HD(2,GPT,ff42c69d-48f9-45fc-9a54-6d2fab380c12,0x190800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\MICROSOFT\BOOT\BOOTMGFW.EFI)
Boot0004* ubuntu        HD(2,GPT,ff42c69d-48f9-45fc-9a54-6d2fab380c12,0x190800,0x82000)/File(EFI\UBUNTU\GRUBX64.EFI)
Boot0005* UEFI: (FAT) KingstonDT 101 G2 PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x14,0x0)/USB(5,0)/USB(2,0)/HD(1,MBR,0x4294967263,0x800,0x1ddf000)..BO

I am not an expert, but here there is something wrong with the same EFI on ubuntu and gentoo. :roll:

That above is the result (if it is related) of using straight away /dev/sdb2 (the EFI partition) as boot partition (and then I ran again grub-install and grub-mkconfig again)


Can please someone explain me what these are and how to remove something (if I have to)?

}



Ok thanks, I will check this later since now I cannot reboot the machine since I am remotely connected to it

First a question: is Secure Boot disabled? It is shimmed in ubuntu.
If you will be keeping ubuntu in a triple boot; easiest way to continue with grub is to enter the gentoo chroot, unmerge grub and remove the /boot/efi and/or /boot/EFI directories as existing, to do so, run
Code:
emerge -C grub
umount /boot/efi
umount /boot/EFI
rm -rf  /boot/efi
rm-rf  /boot/EFI
exit the chroot and boot ubuntu and follow ubuntu procedures to add gentoo to the boot list in the ubuntu grub menu.

Hi...yes I disabled this damn secure boot already in the past.
As I wrote earlier, the current situation is this:
Code:

I shut the old boot out (/dev/sda6)
I mounted boot directory using /dev/sdb2 (the EFI partition)
ran grub-install as usual (--efi-directory=/boot)
ran grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


I don't want anymore ubuntu, so I don't know where that entry is coming from (I thought installing grub removes ubuntu entry but it seems not like that!)
Can I remove all ubuntu entries?

Ok, I removed the ubuntu entries, now I think everything is fine from grub's point of view (or at least cleaner):
Code:

sysresccd boot # efibootmgr -v
BootCurrent: 0005
Timeout: 1 seconds
BootOrder: 0001,0005,0003
Boot0001* gentoo        HD(2,GPT,ff42c69d-48f9-45fc-9a54-6d2fab380c12,0x190800,0x82000)/File(\EFI\gentoo\grubx64.efi)

Boot0005* UEFI: (FAT) KingstonDT 101 G2 PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x14,0x0)/USB(5,0)/USB(2,0)/HD(1,MBR,0x4294967263,0x800,0x1ddf000)..BO
sysresccd boot # ll /boot/
total 7568

drwxr-xr-x 3 root root    4096 Jan 23 16:27 EFI
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root    4096 Jan 23 17:07 grub

sysresccd boot # ll /boot/EFI/gentoo/grubx64.efi


Later I will try a soft reboot to see if I have chance of a correct gentoo boot, if not I will try the suggestions using the UUID.
Thanks for the time being

Hi all guys...
it seems that cleaning the EFI let it at least to start and show the grub menu with entries!
So I fixed this first issue, but the second one (manually starting the kernel stuck) is still there:
Code:

Booting a command list

Loading Linux 4.4.39-gentoo ...


and it remains like this!!! :cry:

I have tried also the suggestions to run it with UUID and PARTUUID, but same behaviour.
I don't use a pre-loaded image, but I don't think that is the issue...
What will you guys suggest next?

grub then is no longer the problem.
the kernel configuration may be
why is the kernel so old?
how did you make the kernel?
from the chroot
Code:
run emerge wgetpaste
eselect kernel list | wgetpaste -t
uname -r | wgetpaste -t
mount /dev/sdb2 /boot #if that is what you have been doing
ls -alR /boot |  wgetpaste -t
wgetpaste -t /usr/src/linux/.config
Post the url's returned.

I will do this tomorrow...
why do you say it is old?
I just did
emerge --sync
emerge gentoo-sources

I will provide all the info tomorrow.
For the time being, grub is showing the "interface" and I can select which kernel to run (from the /boot/grub/grub.cfg)
and it doesn't load anything, no info or start or kernel panic...just stuck after RETURN with "Loading kernel ..."
so it seems it is not even starting the kernel!

oops! why is the kernel so old? Probably a good question but should not have been asked of you. I use testing branch gentoo-sources and git-sources which are at 4.9+ and 4.10+. Did not know going stable was lagging so badly. Should have checked, sorry.

Yes...I thought your question was the outcome of different things you normally do :wink:

It really seems the ssd is not found...although starting sysrescue seems it is recognize that as generic scsi driver...

from the chroot run:
Code:
emerge wgetpaste
eselect kernel list | wgetpaste -t
uname -r | wgetpaste -t
mount /dev/sdb2 /boot #if that is what you have been doing
ls -alR /boot |  wgetpaste -t
blkid | wgetpaste -t

this is an extraction from dmesg from sysrescue not yet in chroot:
Code:

sdb6 is my root (ssd), why it is asking for ext3?

sysresccd is heavily modular; it tries the ext3 module, rejects it, loads ext4

did you just do the base handbook install or have you gone beyond to setup direct boot into a GUI?
