Error during boot

Hey guys.

I recently did a clean reinstall of Garuda, but every time I boot my system I get this error. When I press enter it continues normally unto the login screen. No issues.

Any idea why it's doing this? Inxi below...

You may still have an old UEFI boot entry. Check the output of efibootmgr. Delete the old entry with sudo efibootmgr -Bb 0000, substituting 0000 for the entry you would like to remove.

If you aren't sure which one you are supposed to keep and which one you should get rid of, you can delete them all (assuming you are not dual-booting) and set up a new one by running grub-install.

A prime example of images the world doesn't need.

If someone is looking for the solution to this message,

error: out of memory.

he will not find it.
Because it is not in the headline nor in the help request.


Honestly, I would much rather see a photo of this specific issue than "I have error out of memory pls halp"

Strange. There were various people complaining about that issue (same time as the Grub no boot disaster ^^) but it should be fixed.

My suggestion would be to boot garuda-install-medium, chroot into installation and reinstall Grub.

There's clearly enough space on the UEFI-partition.

Also read of people having this issue while using Grub-themes and being able to fix it by just commenting the GRUB_THEME= line in /etc/default/grub

So I'd try those two and if they yield no results report back.

The OP can boot into the system, so this is a little more work than is necessary--running grub-install is all that is needed.

I believe this is not related to Grub at all, but rather related to the UEFI boot entries. When everyone was reinstalling Grub from the bug, some folks would up with old UEFI boot entries still stuck as the default.

First boot order does seem to be Garuda. Is this correct? I'm not so technical oriented.

That does look right, but unless you are multibooting you do appear to have old/unneeded boot entries.

If this is the only OS on the system, I would start fresh by deleting them all, then run grub-install which will automatically create a new one based on your current configuration.

I installed from a 220822 Talon ISO, perhaps this ISO didn't have the fix?

220822 is probably the date code of release of the ISO?

EDIT: I did the following. Restarted, still gives the Error: out of memory message. Still boots fine after pressing enter.

Oops, try running with sudo:

sudo grub-install

Please paste terminal output as text whenever you can (not screenshots).


Error is gone.

Strange, GRUB looks different now, it was all black with text. Now after running sudo grub-install command it's colorful like the rest of Garuda.

Thank you for everyone's assistance.
