Hi, I have an Dell XPS 7590 and been using Garuda Linux for more than 8 months now.
Earlier today I finished browsing internet and turned off the PC. Now, when I try to start my PC it's booting only into BIOS. When I exit BIOS it will boot once again there and can't get away from there.
In boot sequence there is only Garuda.
I have nothing connected to the laptop.
I tried it with AC plugged in and also plugged out.
Do you have any other ideas how to boot into Garuda?
i only had the endeavouros os on my usb pen and this is how i fixed:
boot from the usb with the live os
open a terminal
type sudo btrfs subvolume list -p /mnt
it will give you an output like this
ID 257 gen 484265 parent 5 top level 5 path @home
ID 258 gen 483827 parent 5 top level 5 path @root
ID 259 gen 483827 parent 5 top level 5 path @srv
ID 260 gen 484237 parent 5 top level 5 path @cache
ID 261 gen 484265 parent 5 top level 5 path @log
ID 262 gen 484265 parent 5 top level 5 path @tmp
before you start, make sure what /dev/sdX or /dev/nvm.. you are playing with. mount the things you need and understand what u need. then sudo umount /mnt/ and start restoring your os. i have my garuda gnome since 2020 and never had the need to format the system. everything is fixable
sdXn stands for the name of your storage name, in my case it is not starting with /sdX* but with /nvme0n1pX and for my, if is divided in 2 or 3 segment. if i remember correctly, in the p1 there is the grub, in p2 the /.
now, for encrypted storage there is an additional step:
sudo cryptsetup open /dev/sda2 mycryptdevice
this is the end:
type sudo arch-chroot /mnt if you have no encryption, type sudo arch-chroot /dev/mapper/mycryptdevice if you have encryption.
type sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id="Garuda"
now the terminal act like you are operating in your garuda ecosystem.
if you want, you can even type fish and it will load w/o problems
I did this, still borked. I'm currently booted into my windows install to create a new live usb. I'll try it one more time before I reinstall. I just don't have the time to figure it out, i have to get going on my research now that i'm back from my vacation. Reinstall and setting everything up again is a more familiar process to me than troubleshooting whatever's going on, for which no instruction sets have helped yet.
(i've been banging my head against every proposed solution since 10am my time today, and now it's almost 3:30).
I tried using the graphical boot repair in garuda to reinstall bootloader and grub config AFTER doing a garuda-update from inside the live usb. that last thing is something i hadn't tried yet. This got me back into my garuda environment without any errors, but i didn't trust it because that had happened a few times before, then on reboot, it was borked again.
From there, i did a garuda-update, and then downgraded grub per a staff suggestion, then rebooted back into my environment and it was fine. Going to try rebooting a few more times to make sure it is okay.
